Holiday Gifts of Love — 40 Comments

  1. My favorite Christmas decorations are also handmade. They were made by my husband’s grandmother, who was killed in a car crash when my children were small. The workmanship is so exquisite, no machine could make anything better.


  2. One of my favorite Christmas Romance Books is The Untamable Rogue by Annette Blair! The story is about Ashford Blackburne Fifth Earl and he has to get married and get his willing bride pregnant before Christmas or his grandfather won’t let him inherit his money. Ash truly needs to inherit the money because his late father squandered it all away and he is taking care of his mother. After getting stood up at the alter, again, Ash and his friends go to the local pub where the owner plays a drunken Ash in a card game…his consolation prize is the pubs daughter Larkin, who he wants to get ride of. Ash has to learn to forgive…Larkin has to learn how to trust…can two completely different people find love together. This is a cute, extremely funny, romantic story with a surprise Christmas ending!

  3. I have a couple ornaments that I bought when my son was born, that were real special to me but with moving I have no idea where they went.


    • I’m sorry to hear these were lost. I have a few that I’ve mislaid over the years and moves as well. I plan to try to recreate a couple of them one of these years.

  4. When my son was in 2nd grade his teacher was brand new, her very first year teaching. I volunteered in the classroom a lot but she took on an overly ambitious ornament idea involving clear glass, styrofoam balls, fake snow, hot glue and… yeah it was a lot of work. I spent the entire week before their break helping each day and there was just enough left I got to make one for myself. Now when I put them on the tree and see all these kids (who are now teenagers!) around I’m reminded of a special time spent with a group of kids whom I hope think on it as fondly as I do. 🙂

  6. I love the different glass and paper mache ones. I have one that is a merimaid, a cow and Santa haning ten. Thanks for being in the Holiday Blog Hop! I really enjoy the holiday season. I enjoy the smells, the food and lights. Oh and the music too. Not much into baking anymore. But I do enjoy tasting, ask my scales. Tee Hee. Great blog.

  7. I don’t have one because my family isn’t big on decorating a Christmas tree.

  8. My condolences on the loss. My husband recently lost his uncle. He was cancer ridden and didn’t expected to live. But my favorite decorations are the ones that my sons make in school. They hold special places in the heart
