Sepia Saturday challenges bloggers to share family history through old photographs.
In keeping with this week’s Sepia Saturday prompt, I send holiday greetings to my fellow Sepians and to all readers and followers. My Christmas card to you is a photo of this year’s fireplace mantle.
In some ways the mantle is fairly typical with its artificial wreath and garland. However, the family heirlooms make it special – to me, at least.
The two red vases were also Violetta’s. They are 1930’s Depression glass, Royal Ruby Red ivy bowls by Anchor Hocking.
Christmas is about family. Decorating with family heirlooms is a good way to keep family history alive.
Please visit my friends at Sepia Saturday for more holiday greetings.
Merry Christmas, y’all! And Happy Blogging in 2014!
