Today is saturday december the 13 th
as JO organizes her "Advent Calendar Blog Hop"
it's my first participation
I am happy to welcome you in my Blog
I love to stitch, sew, sometimes knit or do crochet work,
drawing pencils, watercolor painting, paper, cisors in my hands and I feel well
I'm interested in all DIY, I like cooking, gardening and photographing,
This year, I finally finished my advent calendar
which was begun in an argentic times, last century...
took my times
beginning to stitch windows frames was easy
then I decide to change the roof which was made in wood in the pattern
then I decide to change some ornaments in the windows
then I decide to change for some metallic threads which was not the best part of it
so many years later
JO asked to speek about the best present you ever received
I was 11 years old and have had my very first doll
(as we used to have cellluloid baby doll with baby clothes first)
the gift was not a surprise but...
my mum made for my Magali some clothes :
suede skirt and jacket, a yellow pullover, a crocheted puncho and a white fur coat with a hood.
that was great!
Let me add the story of my oldest christmas gift ornaments :
this year, they are 70 years old
December 1944 my family was living in Reims,
war don't let them a lot
and my mum begun to work as a typist
for US Head Quarter Army
she made friends and Betty, Rita, Clarence spent Christmas
welcomed by my grandparents in their small flat.
They offered them these glass balls
you can imagine how much I cherish them
and the feeling when I hang on them on the tree,
so many warm thoughts of
Freedom, Peace, Friendship, Memory.
