Another Giveaway and thoughts

Not only am I having one...others are too...great time of year, huh?..Tammy from A Primitive Place has these adorable stacking Christmas boxes to be given to a lucky winner...
I was looking through some older posts and actually found a photo of our old (and very melted now) Christmas tree...it was over 9 ft. high as we have tall ceilings in the living room...

.The skirt was yo yos that I made and stitched together..trimmed with skirt with vintage hand crocheted lace..sadly I think its gone too...since then, we've found a smaller tree that will go on a chest in the living room...I've been collecting ornaments from the thrift shop and do have one large box here in the house so all is good.

Those of you who are new followers, we had a garage fire on May 4th of this year which destroyed many things.....still haven't gotten the garage finished but there is light at the end of the tunnel...they will be starting work the Monday after Thanksgiving... things were saved and are in a storage locker which we can't get to as its too far away.....I wonder how many Christmas things were saved? I had a lot of Dickens Village houses, boxes of ornaments from over the years, antique and vintage depression glass..two sets of china..etc.
Its fun starting over though and it could have been much worse...we have so much to be thankful for....
