Christmas Memories

My mother loved Christmas and always made it a magical time. She spent hours placing individual icicles on each branch. Sometimes the trees were really scrawny, so my brother drilled holes in the tree and then "grafted" branches from the bottom.

This tree (circa 1971) was one of the last "real" trees she decorated.

My sister, Marilyn made the Raggedy Andy and Ann dolls for Mom. The Club Aluminum cookware was new that year and was finally "retired" in the 90s.


  1. My Mom too patiently put icicles on our tree...interesting isn't it?

  2. what a beautiful tree..
    Have a happy and safe Christmas..Dont know if the snow is falling your way..
    if it is, stay warm and cozy..
