a vintage Christmas "Gift"

Every Christmas my family spends the
afternoon celebrating at my Sister & Brother in Laws
Kathy & Roger took over after my Mom & Dad
had both passed...
I love to give her a little something special
always handmade with love by Me....

(yes, yesterday I did all my shopping & creating)
I was thinking of the old Silver Aluminum Christmas
tree that we had when we were little...
since I had Silver Pipe Cleaners,  I decided that was going to 
be IT!
complete with little Ornaments made with head pins & Beads...

Then of course I had to frame a photo of us
when we were little with That Tree!
I am the little Blond on the left,  she is the Middle Child in the center...

I Think She'll 
Then the next gift was a super
exciting one for me,  which is still making me smile.... 
 about 6 weeks ago my computer CRASHED,
you know that dreaded Blue Screen
My sil was able to fix,  but I had lost 
ALL my wonderful photos,
over 7000,  
(No,  I have never backed them up)

To my amazement,   today while writing this post,
I clicked on a setting to upload photos (Picassa web folder)
and there were many of the wonderful Photos
I thought I had lost....
Not All,  but LOTS

I am Thrilled,
one of the Best Gifts ever on
Christmas Eve....

Merry CHRISTmas to
