Treasures from my mom

My mom knew I was the one in the family that I would keep the "tresures"

and keep the family history alive.

Today I put up my mom's little first Christmas tree,

my grandmother kept for many years.

These are my mom's baby shoes that were bronzed and made

into a lamp.

I haven't plugged it in, not sure if it works.

The man in uniform is my grandfather during World War II

My grandfather used to go to the desert and collect rocks

which he cut and polished.

He made jewelry with some.

My Christmas cactus is blooming.  I really like this bit of

natural decorating.

My tree is decorated. I seem to be so behind on everything this



  1. Oh my, Renee! What a beautiful Christmas tree! And I love the Christmas cactus,too! Hope you have a very Merry Christmas.


  2. HI Renee! Oh, what sweet treasures you have! Just makes your heart happy to have family pieces around. Thanks for popping in to see me.
    be a sweetie,
