BEST CHRISTMAS PROJECT EVER! -SAVE THOSE CARDS

One of my favorite Christmas treasures is my Christmas cards from years past. Each year I purchase an ornate frame and put our card in it. It is so amazing to see how your children have grown. One of our friends even said, "I have known you since --here"-pointing to one of the pictures. I also do the same with our pictures from Santa (I made these all black & white--no idea where they are right now but hope to find the soon).

Oh how I love the Homestead and the Grand Hotel! Especially, the Homestead since our cottage is about 15 mins. away on Little Traverse Lake.....fun times!!

Love the traditional look you have going on your mantel, it looks beautiful!
