Header Photos

You may have noticed that I finally changed the photos on the header making my blog a little more Christmas-y.

The first photo is of some Christmas decorations I bought a few years ago in an after-Christmas sale. They almost look like antique cut glass but that's not the case.

Last year I took some pictures of things on our tree. This little elf has been in the family since our kids were little - long before the Shelf Elf story came about.

Son built the little Nativity out of popsicle sticks when he was 5 or 6 years old. It was a project for his youth group.

The last photo is just a little decoration that sat on our chest of drawers last year.

As I type this AD has gone to WallyWorld to get a small string of light for our lighted Christmas tree. Seems a couple of the strings that came attached to the tree are now non-working. Then I'll begin decorating the tree.

More pictures to follow in the days to come.


  1. Hello Oklahoma Granny, I really enjoy your blog. I am a Granny from Texas, I think that makes us neighbors. :o) Will visit again soon. Mary

  2. Way to go Granny! At least you're getting started!

    me, not so much.....

  3. I look forward to seeing your decorations;your house is always festive. We're getting an early snow today. I can hear the kids outside living it up!

  4. Got our tree up last week. Thank goodness all the lights work. Did some shopping today and I'm pooped. Enjoy your day.

  5. I LOVE your header! You have the right idea. Every picture has it's own little story behind it. The popcicle stick Nativity Scene is a treasurable memory. My header was thrown up in about 3 minutes...I am jealous...not really, just love your header. Gerry

  6. I think you win the Christmas blog header competition. I love the little knick knacks that people put around their house this time of year especially those that they have had for a while.

  7. Your header looks very festive! I love that you kept the elf and nativity that your son made. The items with family history are always the most cherished.

    Your ahead of me with decorating.

    Your Friend,

  8. Great header! I love how you did the pictures. So how did you do it? On a powerpoint slide, or right here on the blogsite?

  9. I love your new header. Thanks for hanging in there with me during the game. I'm so excited. I'm not used to being up this late. Everyone else was in bed by 9:30. Talk to you soon.

  10. Great header! I love your photos! I have so many ornaments from when my kids were little...and crafts they've made too! I wish I had the room to display all of them.

  11. Very pretty Christmas header!
    I think I have an elf that looks just like that one. I wonder if they're related?? tee hee

  12. I need to figure out how to make my blog all prettied up. Yours always looks great.

    BTW.....thank you for all the prayers. I truly appreciate you.
