a charmed life

I recently did a little bartering/swapping with Elaine. You MUST click on the photo's to see these babies close up...I gasped when I opened the package...the photo on the left is my husband, probably 1971 or 1972, so cute! The photo on the right is a picture of my mom and 2 of her brothers from 1949. This is one of my favorite pictures of my mom as a girl, you can tell the older boy, my Uncle Fred is looking at Santa and trying to figure it all out about mom's younger brother can tell he "believes" and my mom, oh yeah, she loves the jolly old elf!!

Below is the opposite side...I asked for a vintage Santa for my husbands picture....on the right is the actual photo frame that came with the picture from 1949, Elaine copied it and then added a little glitter, it is so cute!!!

Lastly my crafty friends will love BFF Cheyenne sent Christmas gifts our way....holy smokes did she spoil us and the kids....a bottle of wine (not for the kids) pj's, games, disposable cameras, scrap booking supplies, breakfast/popcorn makings for a family game night or morning....and in it was some goodies for me...I just love this "badge" LOVE IT! This so is ME! "1st place for being wicked crafty" says..."you are so crafty that you will look at this award and say "Hey! I could have made that!"

P.S....Mom I had not planned on giving you the charm, I really just thought it would a cute Christmas necklace for myself....but after seeing it, I have to...I will be getting another one for myself...this one is for you...:) I am going to have one made up of Gary in front of the Christmas tree holding the machine gun too. :)

  1. I totally missed this post. I'm so behind on reading the blogs that I keep an eye on.
    I'm so glad that you liked the charms. I love the old Santa pictures ~ they are so fun to work with. Let me know when you want one for fact if you know that you're going to see me any time this year I can make it and bring it. Happy New Year, Kristine!
