Sunday Favorites-Precious Angels from Heaven

I posted this originally for Pink Saturday but it's perfect for Sunday Favorites too at Chari's place at Happy to Design.  Chari, thanks for your visit today! These are some of my favorite little Christmas decorations.




I love having things around me that belong to my Mom and grandmothers as it reminds me of times we shared when I was growing up.  These familiar things bring a sense of nostalgia, comfort and family and I love decorating with special "family heirlooms" at the holidays.   My mother has given me so many lovely things, and several years ago she passed along these little Christmas angels to me.  They are from the mid 1950's and  have the sweetest little faces.  They are actually older than me and belonged to my grandmother.



I have them on the side table in the dining room this year..but I think they look cute no matter where they are.

Have a Blessed Holiday Season and Merry Christmas!

  4. We don't need elaborate decorations or a big tree or numerous gifts under a tree. All any of us needs is to carry the spirit of Christmas in our hearts and to share it all year long with everyone we meet.

    Your angels are precious. I treasure the ornaments of my parents. They bring such warmth to my home...

    Thank you so much for sharing your blog with me today. Yes, I'm crazy about ♥PINK♥ but I'm also devoted to visiting some of the nicest blogs in cyberspace.

    Hoping your weekend is filled with peace.

  7. Those are so sweet -- and it's lovely to have family heirlooms especially at this time of year. Since we live in such a small space now, our kids have all of our family pieces, but we get to visit them when we go see the kids! Enjoy your Christmas Season!
