Our downsized tree...taller and much thinner

This year's tree turned out to be mostly ornaments from my childhood.
And mostly gold...which would have killed Miss Betty. She was
all about the RED!

One of my favorite things on earth! Miss Betty's creche...
brought back from her European honeymoon I believe.

Across the room, on the sideboard, Duke of Gloucester Street

December "Dots and Dashes"

Picture from the exhibit
I can't believe I posted every day last month!

That was a great challenge and I really enjoyed Family Tree Magazine's writing prompts.

This month I will be on and off the grid, so the posts may be a bit sporadic.

To make up for that, I will try to find unusual and interesting things...and will start today!!

Check out this wonderful online exhibit about The Bureau of Home Economics.

Be sure to read the biographies of the women in charge of the different divisions back in the day... Their resumes are stunning.

Enjoy!!
