I got a nice surprise!

My beloved childhood book

      http://easymakesmehappy.blogspot.com/   has a picture of a book exactly like mine.  I think it is in better condition.  I loved mine to death.  I wonder who loved hers? I find it so strange to see something on someones blog that I cherish.  Not long ago I saw the twin of a teapot my late Aunt Edna had bought me on Chimpmunknits blog.  I once spotted my good cherry tablecloth and napkins ????someplace. I find it heartwarming and maybe a tad strange.  The experience always makes me hold my breath for a second.  I wonder if anyone else has had this happen .  Wonder what it was, and somehow did you felt a kinship with the other owner?  I am really not expecting an answer although that would be kind of cool. Maybe someone could blog about their finds.

    Still working on the ripple....well kind of.  We went to see mom and dad and put the new tree up for them.  I washed the windows and put up fresh curtains.  I bought them a new Christmas tablecloth , and a few other little Christmas decorations.  I made the fruit breads and took them over.  It was a very nice  time.  WP. and I listened to Christmas music on the ride over.  I was really feeling it  by the time I unloaded the gifts for under the tree.  They will be here for Christmas Eve and Day, but I put a few gifts under their little tree from Santa.....he came real early this year. We just did not have room for all the packages around here. I ask them to wait till Christmas Eve before they come over or Christmas Day.  I want them to still feel Christmas in their own home.  They are truly my dears and I love them like they were now my children if that makes sense.  Dad and mom love my fruit bread.  Mom told me I had really stepped in it this year and not over it.... hill translation I did a good job. :)

Well just thought I would share about the book .  No one else was excited about it around here ;) my dears be a tiny bit excited about it with me. And I wish for you some wonderful memories homemade memories ...they are the best.  Nice warm hug.
