Abe Lincoln

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln

Christmas Swap and Blog Winnings

First to the wonderful Christmas Swap ornaments I received!

The lovely group of hang tags is from Audrey's Country Crafts.  Hand painted wooden tag to hang in your tree.  They are just a wonderful addition to my big tree.

This hand painted gingerbread ornament is from Cindy Beaubouef.  Another wonderful ornament to have for the big tree for everyone to see.  I love to have a tree filled with ornaments that mean something and can tell a story.  Christmas memories a part of the season of love, and family.

Here are the wonderful hearts that I won from the Farmersatticblog.  I will add these to a sled a wove that is filled with ornaments from my childhood.  I have lost my family over the years and these hearts represent my sister, mother and father.  They are gone but the memories I have will last a life time.  I love letter that only a family can write.  Great addition to my home.

Merry Christmas to everyone!
