Happy Pink Saturday! I found these vintage ornaments in a little shop earlier in the week. I always try to add some vintage ornaments to my collection every year. Confession: I haven’t even begun to decorate yet. I don’t like to start until the second week of December. One of the ornaments is in my favorite color combination of aqua and pink.
Beverly has asked us to share one of our favorite memories of Christmas. Mine involves the magical world of Muirhead’s, our local department store in my hometown of Dearborn, Michigan. There were four children in our family, but for several years it was just my brother and me. Every Christmas, we would go there to see Santa. Muirhead’s designed this wonderful icy wonderland, rather like a giant igloo, with a train and all sorts of wonderful treats. You can see us on the train in the photo. My mother passed these on to me several years ago and they are very dear to me, especially since I lost my brother to cancer in 1991. Last year, I had them framed. My sisters came along later and their visits to Santa took place at other stores – I don’t know why. Maybe Muirhead’s stopped doing the Santaland? Eventually, Muirhead’s closed and went out of business. Luckily, I have these photos as a wonderful souvenir of those Christmas visits.
Please visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound to see a list of everyone participating. We’ve got our first snow coming today and I am helping out at my friend’s shop but I promise I will visit all of you.
Have a wonderful weekend.
