Timeless Christmas Treasures

You may know this about me - I love to hold on to my "old" things
 and this beautifully illustrated Christmas Story book by J. Pienkowski
 is the one we always read as a bed time story on Christmas Eve!
  It tells the Christmas story in King James Version style
 from the book of Luke and Matthew.
  At this time of year this book reappears on the coffee table.  

I also love these antique Christmas Cards and an old
Christmas Carol Book that were from
my Mom and Dad's things.
The images are so beautiful and timeless.

I treasure these beautiful pictures of a time past
and I rejoice that they are still relevant today!

Have a blessed Christmas my friends!


  1. Wow! A few days ago I was thinking about the long-gone books of my childhood and how I would like to find them again and pass them on to my (eventual) children. I could remember the vivid illustrations from Pienkowski's "Christmas", but couldn't remember for the life of me who the author or illustrator was. A quick Google image search for "Christmas story book" lead me to your blog and I quickly reacquainted myself with the cover that has stuck in my mind since the age of 4. Thanks so much for posting the image.

    1. That's so amazing! It's one of our favourite Christmas story books. Blessings to you and your "eventual" children :)


Summer in Full Swing!

It's official! Summer has arrived in SW Ontario. It has been sweltering hot, the Spring flowers have bloomed and are long gone. ...
