Christmas Nostalgia

Christmas is a joyful season yet mixed with nostalgia of yesteryears. I remember my mother spring cleaning once several years ago. She showed me a few things she didn't need anymore that I might like. One of them was a Christmas pillow. I've treasured it ever since. I always loved that pillow. Now it goes wherever I go. In the RV, across many of the States. Now in my cabin. It makes me think of Mother. I miss her all the time. Today, I missed her even more. She loved Christmas, decorating, cooking, celebrating with family. Just a pillow, but it's a token of love, a mother's love that stays with me.

I have a daughter named Joy. She's my miracle. Each Christmas I buy her something with the word "Joy" to add to her collection. Below is a "JOY" reindeer ornament I found this past weekend at an antique store.

 
These two Christmas characters, the teddy bear from last year and the Santa from today, are a gift from a vendor at my day job. His wife makes the peppermint and white chocolate candy (Santa). Since last year's candy she made is long gone, today I made my favorite No-Bake Chocolate goodies to go in the teddy bear. The two characters are sitting on a mirror I purchased recently at
at an antique shop.
Leaning in the background is a board I found in a trash pile. I couldn't resist making it into a chalkboard!

That pillow is so sweet! Looks just like your mom's decor. Looks like you've been busy around the cabin with Christmas decorating! Pretty!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the lovely comments. I love the story behind your pillow.

It's very trouble-free to find out any matter on net as compared to textbooks, as I found this post at this site.
