I received this little ornament from one of my Sunday School teachers when I was VERY young, so it has been around a long time! Probably about 50 years! I have always loved and treasured it and it hangs on the tree every single year. The glitter has discolored and it's just cheap plastic but it has a lot of meaning for me. And it's only about 2 inches tall!! Sorry for the blurriness.

This is the Christmas stocking my mom made me when I was a very young child. It is definitely one of my most prized posessions! By the way, the photo I posted yesterday of Mary, Jesus and camel were all cut out of wood (by me) and painted by me! Back in my folk art painting days. I miss working with wood. Have to think about that after Christmas!

I am finally figuring out this whole uploading of photos deal. Just thought I would post a photo of my favorite Kankakee barn quilt. This was done by a group of homeschooled teenagers. The detail is amazing!! I only saw 10 of the 30 barn quilts in Kankakee county but hope to see the rest in 2011!!!
