In my comments, Pat from Brooklyn mentioned digging out old decorations and how they have memories attached to them. Her comment gave me the idea to show you some Christmas sayings I have displayed and tell you about the memories attached with them.
This first ornament used to hang on my tree a few years ago with lots of other bear ornaments. The tree featured a lot of red plaid and cross stitch ornaments. I still have them, but this one usually gets pulled out and displayed-this year on my desk. Someone posted an acronym for the meaning of JOY: Jesus, Others, and You. (Sorry I can't remember who's blog it was) I really liked that!
This is another cross stitch that I did years ago when I was completing cross stitch projects coming and going! This one is above the barrister book case. I know I've had it quite a few years, and can't remember where it was hung in my other house. I thought about putting it somewhere else this year just to change things around, but couldn't find anywhere else that I liked it!
This one is a ceramic ornament that I usually display either in a wreath or in front of greenery. I've always loved this saying. On the back, the student who gave this to me signed his name along with 'Merry Christmas.' This decoration and so many others I have remind me of the students that gave them to me. I taught this little boy, and years earlier I taught his dad!
What is your favorite Christmas saying?
Have a great day, and thanks for coming by.
