Dreaming of a White Christmas....Shopping with a Twist!!

Please join Grandma G's & MMP for shopping with a twist on Friday November 27, 2009 as we present "Dreaming of a White Christmas"!!

Every Christmas, everyone from great-grandparents to the newest addition to the family, gather around the Christmas tree. We’re filled with anticipation of the upcoming celebration and gratitude for loved ones to share it with. The boxes of favorite ornaments are brought out from their safe storage and passed around, inspiring memories of many a Christmas. Some of the ornaments have been handed down from mother to daughter for generations, we reminisce about the memories they hold. Others are new, bringing a new excitement about the memories we’ll make this year. Soon the tree is shining with glitter, beads, ribbons, lace and memories.

As we set up our Christmas villages with the old-fashioned houses and bottle brush trees, the children peer closely at the scene and imagine what is happening behind those tiny closed doors. The sprinkle of glittering snow on the village rooftops and pathways reminds us of the snow we hope to have for this Christmas.

A quick look around and you’ll see Christmas wreaths and garlands of greenery, gracing our doorways and doors. Each welcoming family and friends inside with holiday ornaments and twinkling lights. Stockings are hung from the mantle, seemingly empty but overflowing with hopes and wishes for Christmas morning. As we sit by the crackling fire, sipping tea and hot cocoa from vintage holiday mugs, a feeling of nostalgia fills us with contentment.

We fondly remember unwrapping treasures from our childhood. A precious doll with curling hair and eyes that closed when you tucked her into a bed made just for her. A charm bracelet that made you feel all grown up whenever you wore it. A hand knit sweater that felt like a hug from your mother when you put it on. These treasures are etched in our memories.

This year’s gifts sparkle under the tree, each present lovingly chosen and carefully wrapped with extra special touches. They’re trimmed with vintage lace and beautiful handmade tags, bearing the names of loved ones. The packages capture our imaginations, and we can’t help but dream about what’s inside and what wonders this Christmas season has in store.

Outside, as the snow begins to lightly fall, we know that this year, like so many others, all of our Christmas dreams can come true.
