Wow, so many wonderful hot dogs in our fireplace while we decorated the Christmas tree, going to the Mayflower Hotel in Plymouth for Christmas Eve dinner, reading the Night Before Christmas with my dad, baking cookies with my mom, my grandparent's home in Greenville, MI and the hand made stockings my grandma M made me and the 10+ year quest for the perfect Christmas tree Star!

Humm, our "obsessions" are quite similar. What is it about engraved stationery and a fabulous sideboard? I'm so with you!

Tickled Pink And Green said...

Oh my gosh, I think I had that Dancerina!! Or am I getting it mixed up with a doll whose pony tail would grow? I'm so confused and my memory is horrible, but I wonder if they still make Dancerina!
