  9. Oh Julie, I am so sad about your baby Shaba..You have to be the kindess spirit on the planet! This little guy was blessed to have you even for a short time..and yes, he wont forget you..
    Sending warm hugs, and wishing you a warm and cozy holiday my sweet friend xoxox

  10. I have so much to share with you. First of all, my kind thoughts to you for Shaba. How sweet of you to have had this little one. Next, thank you for sharing your story about the kind reader touched by your story of lost treasures. Your story had also touched me .... how do you ever replace lost memories, although we do try with new memories. Lastly, on your Vintage Monday post, you have the little caroler candles that I just posted this Monday as well. Mine represent an old memory of my father. You can always find treasures at tag sales, Goodwill and other thrift shops, but we really want something of our own, of our memories, to make us smile, and make our days a little brighter. Thank you for sharing your stories. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  11. Julie Marie - Thank you once again for stopping by and leaving such a wonderful comment.

    I, too, am very grateful for having met you this year; and look forward to a growing friendship.

    Blessings to you and your family this holiday season,


  12. I have to thank Joan for hosting Vintage Christmas Monday. I met so many wonderful people, with wonderful stories they posted and the wonderful comments that they gave me. With your comments, I felt that we were friends that just haven't met yet. Your comments right now on the Viet Nam post, brought tears to my eyes. As I wrote, it wasn't a proper vintage ornament, but it was a proper Christmas memory that needed to be shared. Thank you. s A blessed Merry Christmas to you...... from your friend.

  13. Dear Julie Marie,
