from our home to yours




another season has crept up on us like never before.  i swear i was just celebrating the 4th of july....trying to figure out how to cool off and NOW it is chilly out, the heater is now turned on, the tree is up and i am wishing i could magically snap my fingers and all my loved ones would be in the same location.

this year we are staying put...as grandma would say, " just us'ns".  no travel this season as we are all worn out and need some time to recoup some energy (i see many naps in my near future). 

i wanted to share a few shots of holiday at the city apt.  the wreath from red ticking seattle..purchased this year, the paper mache pinecones also from red ticking (vintage 2008) and the iron dear from great, great grandparents.

i wish for each of you that this season will be filled with hope and thankfulness.  i know that is how i am feeling this year.

peace to all of you.

nice and homey. I am reading Sarah Skinner Kilborne's story of her great great grandfather, William Skinner. He lost 30 years worth of silk mill business in a single flood of the mill river (the dam broke). You might like to learn more details of the great great grandfather era. http://sarahkilborne.com/category/blog/
He was a major influence for the city in which I live, Holyoke, MA. It's a book that goes well with naps. I wonder where your great great was from? Skinner was from Spitalfields, north of London.

sara,

i will have to put the book on my list...sound like an interesting read and story. these generations seems to be getting further and further away and it is always a good reminder of history.
i do not have the full history of this side of my family...i do know my great, greats were indeed the ones who migrated to the states. these little treasures bring me great comfort.
happy holidays to you and yours. i have not heard of Holyoke, MA..but is sure do like the name. stay warm...
