A Vintage Christmas

With all the vintage ornaments and decorations in this lovely house, it seems as if I have travelled back in time to my childhood. We spent many a Christmas here on the farm. The temperature outside feels just right. The smells coming from the kitchen are divine. The cookies are piling up. Tradition and family history fill the rooms.  This place now represents five generations. We have a lot to remember and share. Feeling such gratitude for those who came before us. Here’s to the smiles on their faces as they watch over us living their legacy.

These belonged to my grandparents. They were purchased in the 1930’s.

There used to be five of these. I have one at my house. One of my favorites.

I painted this in 1972, when I was five. Not my best work.

Oh Ba–Bee My Valentine!

These Valentine cards are due for delivery today. Thanks to my neighbor, Jo Ann, for her order. She asked me to make vintage cards. This was a first for me and I thoroughly enjoyed it. She also told me that ‘Nana’ and ‘Grandma’ like birds. And that the cards were from her son and daughter. Sweet.

Designing and creating unique gifts for people is only half the fun. Infusing a personal story is the rest. I enjoy getting to know a bit about my customers through my work at Oh BaBee! Originals.
