Merry Christmas...


  1. Merry Christmas, Julie Marie... I am trying to catch up on so many blogs right now. I've been reading back and I was in tears at how sweet your presents are for the adopted grandparents program. Oh, I can just picture your grandma in her tiara. I do hope you somehow get to see pictures from the dinner!

    And I was so sorry to hear about your elephant. How very sad.

    I loved your photo of the bald eagles and so enjoyed looking at more of your vintage ornaments.

    You are such a kind and generous person - I wish you the happiest New Year!... Donna

  2. Merry Christmas to you too.
    Joyeux Noel, Julie :)

  3. So sorry you've had a cold all week. May it be all gone, very soon.

    Gentle hugs.........

  4. Bonsoir Julie Marie
    I have been admiring your blog for over an hour tonight. I'm sorry your sick, I hope you feel better soon.
    I also admire your heart. It's very kind. I can tell from way over here in Ontario, Canada.
    When I was 21 I put together a "Adopt a grandparent" program. I recruited high school kids to visit "their adopted Grandparent" once a week. It was wonderful. I made sure these wonderful older ladies and gents had no family to come and visit with them. They were all special, and my heart grew bigger with each visit. That was a long time ago. Your story brought back many many cherished moments. Thank you and your family.
    We are also bird lovers. We built a kind of "Teepee" for them out our front window. My 6 dogs, most are senior rescues, 2 cats also rescues watch the birds all day long. We protected them from the snow and wind. They seem happy. Love how you captured your friends!
    I'm 53, love my life. I, we, adore all creatures big and small. I'm sorry your little Elephant passed away, poor baby.
    Ok enough for tonight. I'm suppose to be doing the Pink Saturday rounds.
    Love your blog
    Love Claudie (Claudette)
