    when i was a little girl we had a santa that had a light in it and it hung on the wall. my family told me that it had a direct line to santa and he could hear me if i talked to him. well, i took every advantage to let him know what i would like for Christmas and knew i had to be a good girl while he was all lit up and listening.. p.s i did get my first bicycle!

  2. My favorite decoration is an iron tree with sewing ornaments. Lovely projects in your book. Thanks

    As a kid, my favorite holiday decoration was the fir Christmas tree (Charlie Brown style) we always helped to pick out and help to decorate with a big star on top. We carried on that tradition with our kids while they were growing up. :)

    My favorite holiday decoration was always the Christmas tree. We had a big ornate angel for the top. Every year I tried to convince my parents that we needed a real tree rather than the fake one. I won a few times, but the needles in the carpet always made my mom swear never again.

    Growing up Christmas was always difficult…. but my favorite memory was my dad cutting out a “coca cola”Santa out of plywood…. it was 8ft tall and we put it in the front yard with a spotlight… that was 50+ yrs ago… way before it was standard to have yard decorations…… all the neighbor hood was impressed…. we used it for many years…

    I have over 100 feet of garland that I made over 20 years ago. I took a piece of rope and tore yards of christmas fabric into strips, then tied them in a knot on the rope. I wrap it down my staircase.

    I love the stockings. Looks like a great book.

  8. Ellee says:

    My favorite Christmas decoration is a tabletop Christmas tree that sits on our kitchen counter every December.

    My favorite Christmas ornament is a special Angel for the top of the Christmas tree!

    My favorite holiday decorations are the string lights I hang inside the house. The inside is just as bright as the outside.

  11. Kathy E. says:

    My favorite holiday decorations are the nutcrackers we’ve collected over the years. None of them are the expensive collector type, but all of them are special in one way or the other. Each year, I lay down a lighted evergreen garland on the mantel, then sit the nutcrackers on top. It looks so pretty and festive!

    I loved my mom’s aluminum tree with the color wheel. I loved watching the tree change colors as the wheel rotated. I have a soft spot for silver trees even today.

    I LOVE TILDA! I would love to have this book! My favorite decoration is a reindeer my youngest child made in Kindergarten out of a Palmetto tree bark.

  14. Jaime says:

    I love all of these!! The owl stocking is my favorite though! So cute! My favorite ornament as a kid were the ones my parents had gotten before I was born. It was always nice to see something from before they had me. Also, not an ornament but I love love love my ceramic manger set.. It was my moms and now I have it :)

  15. Therese says:

    My favorite decoration is a little boy baby sleeping in a hand decorated egg shell. It was given to me as a baby present when my first son was born and adorns our tree each year.
