A Day of Remembrance ~

Welcome kindred spirits!

This morning, one name was chosen for the 
the first of three Christmas gift giveways...

The first gift is an antique brass sewing kit from Germany.

With ALL the entered names gathered together, 
the winner is...

Congratulations and Merry Christmas
 to a kindred stitcher in Canada!

The second of three Christmas gifts will be shown 
on Friday....NEVER, NEVER, NEVER give up!

December 7th, is a very bittersweet day for me,
filled with both happy and sad memories...

This is a photo of my dearest mother when she was young. 
Oh, how I miss her laughter and cheerfulness!

I don't have the words to express how much I miss her, 
I carry her memory in my heart each and every day!

In loving memory of my dear mother

Plus, may we ALL never forget that today is 
also Pearl Harbor Day...

What a truly devastating day this was for America!

The air is chilly and crisp these days,
but no snow on the grown yet...

These Crabapple trees are so pretty even after loosing
all there leaves!

My favorite is this bright golden pretty!

Christmas is coming, Christmas is coming...honk, honk, honk! 

These geese are honking loud and clear, warning their feathered
friends to run, run, run as fast as you can...don't stop until
Christmas has passed!

So, if you're out driving and see ducks and geese running,
you can be sure their running for shelter!

What is your family table tradition...Ham, Turkey, Duck, Goose?

I wish I had time and knew how to knit gloves and mittens...

Aren't these old gloves incredible!
 (only to be admired not worn)

I do know how to knit socks, but for some reason gloves
have always looked so intimidating to me!

Perhaps fingerless gloves would be a great place to start!

and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

A time to be born, 
and a time to die;

If your heart and soul are will sparkle from 
head to toe!

Stay warm and toasty,
Kindly, Tammy


  1. A lovely the running geese!

  2. We always have ham. This weather is so mild, isn't it?

  3. Oh Tammy, I know what you mean about missing your mother. My mom died four years ago - three days after my birthday. My mother-in-law died on my birthday. I think about my mother every single day and i try really, really hard to be the kind of mother to my two grown children that she was to me. How blessed we both are to have such good memories of our mothers.

    As for Pearl Harbor Day, it's just still such a tragedy even though I hadn't been born when it happened. My dad was a prisoner of war in World War II and he was such a patriotic man. Let's pray there is never, ever such a tragedy again. I pray every night that God will give wisdom to the leaders of the world to somehow bring about world peace.

    I miss my Mom so very much also.
    She passed away 23 years ago, but it still seems like yesterday.
    That's a very nice pic of your Mother.

  5. Congrats to Jenny.
    What a beautiful picture of your mother. How sad she died so young.
    May God Bless America.
    Hugs :)

  6. So happy for Jenny! Enjoy your new treasure...Thank you for sharing your thoughts of your lovely Mom....many blessings Tammy

  7. Well congrats to the winner, and I for one, will never give up. My geese and ducks need not run for their lives,as they know for a fact that I, would never harm a feather on their lovely knobby heads. "ROASTED duck and goose" are certainly NOT on the menu here, and those words are never mentioned out loud. As a World War II buff, I am all too familiar with that horrid day. Just watched "World War II as seen from Space". They focused a lot on Pearl Harbor. Like Diane's father, My dad fought in that war as well. Fortunately he was not a prisoner but an Air-force guy.

  8. To see your mother Tammy all you have to do is look in the mirror...
