Christmas is a peaceful time, and ours was just
wonderful, spent with family. Yesterday we made the 10 hour, heavy traffic
on crowded highways, trip home. It was all worth it, but now I have
a house filled with piles of stuff....real life!
I want to share a couple cute things with you.
(Pardon my hasty photos.)
How about this Howdy Doody theme "Krispy Kan"?
Need to do some research here.
When my Mom passed away a couple years ago my Sister and I, and other
family, saved many of her things. However, my Sister had a stack in her
basement of the final things from Mom's storage. Time to go through and
purge, donate or toss.
BUT...we definitely found some more keepers.
Today I want to share just a couple things.
Mom's angel girls.
From the Five & Dime: W.T. Grant & Co., 49 cents each.
These sweet angels also came home with me.
She kept some of my school things, cards and letters I sent her.
She kept this, and wrote that I did in school when I was in
We had to find a magazine photo to show what our
did for a living. My absent father was out of the picture,
so I found a photo to use as my "working" Mom.
I'll translate this for you:
"My Mother Works"
"My mother works for the Railroad. She sells tickets in a big office.
Sometimes she works in East Haven. She works at night and days too."
I literally laughed out loud when I read it! Lucky the Dept. of
Social Services folks didn't come knocking on our door!
Actually my Mom did work two jobs! She was a ticket seller for
the New Haven Railroad, and she did bookkeeping part-time
for a small business. She was our only breadwinner so did
what she had too...she was a pretty darn amazing woman!
Nana, her Mother, lived with us and helped bring us up.
She was like our "at home" Mom. No need for Social
Services intervention. 😍
Hope something here made you smile, and that your
special holiday time was wonderful also.
After I unpack I'll be back to share more goodies!
