looking back at the other photos
I am reminded of how colors, furniture, decorations change

I wish I still had some of those sweaters
I know some kids and grands who would have fun with them

I have enjoyed looking back and bringing you along with me

Oh the sweatwrs....your signature back in the day! Your jean skirts and a different sweater everyday. You must have had 75 sweaters! And whats with the hair? Forgot it was kinda big back then! No matter what, you were and are adorable!

Nancy said...

Oh Lynn, I had those same sweaters and a plaid skirt as well. I would get a new one every year when they would first come out....I would wear all through Christmas....What fun memories....Happy New Year.....

Andrew got his girlfriend two Christmas sweaters this year as an early present. His later gift was more romantic...a beautiful snowflake necklace.

Oh, the things we should have kept...

Great journey through the years with you but I think my favorite is the last one with the three of you.

What a fun look back! I had help from my daughter getting all the Christmas things put away for another year. It's always a little sad, but so much nicer to enjoy someone's company while packing it away. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Missy George said...

Barbara Lilian said...

Wow Lynne you certainly had some fantastic Christmas sweaters. Something I never chose to wear , I used to choose something sparkly for Christmas. Your lovely New year card has arrived . thank you so much. I feel special having received your letter telling me about events you have been to and things you've done. I look forward to our friendship growing through our blog posts and emails. wishing you & your family the best of health for 2016.

Oh yes, those sweaters are really popular it seams for Christmas parties and gatherings. LOL So fun to see all the 'vintage' photos of Christmases past. A lovely photo of you and your sweet hubby and Snickers too!

Hmmm...I never owned a Christmas sweater. I know many wore them but I never did. I remember one that I wanted so bad...didn't get it.
You were lovely back then and still are. Happy New Year, dear friend!!
(they say to never throw anything away! HA!! :)

Hi Lynne, lovely photos of you and your Christmas sweaters. I love the last shot of the three of you together. Have a happy weekend!

MarmePurl said...

Too much fun. Love you Lynne!

Linda said...

Love those sweaters!
Cheers!
Linda :o)

Sarah Huizenga said...

Crazy, amazing sweaters. Plus the days of permed hair...oh I remember.

Jeanie said...

Oh Lynne, I've been enjoying our exchange! And I love these photos! Those trees are glorious and yes, I have similar sweaters, too. I think our Christmas memory photos are always some of the best. We see how we (and our styles) have changed or stayed the same and the things that meant the most to us -- enough that we would photograph them at the time because they were pretty or sentimental or special. Loved this post!

Happy New Year. I have four trees down -- and tons more to go!

Musings from Kim K. said...

I really enjoyed your pictorial review. I honestly still own some of those Christmas sweaters and you can bet my eldest has wore them to school for "ugly sweater day". Funny how I didn't think they were so bad at the time. PS. I'm loving all this cold and snowy weather. Now, if we could just teleport ourselves from home to school/work each day, I'd be all set!

Man oh man, you are one photogenic chick! They're all great phtos and I can see you've always been and still are a beauty. Hugs, Nancy
