Five Fun Favorites On Friday

Combining three memes today - Fun Favorites on Friday , Willy Nilly Friday Five and Five on Friday - so do I get 10?  It is never hard for me to take lots of photos - especially during the holidays - I love this time of the year.
1. Trees 
 2. My Teddy Bear Tree
 One of our favorite teddy bear ornaments
And a Partridge in a Bear Tree!
 3. Two of our grandsons - a few years ago - they are 14 and 11 now
 4. Felt christmas stockings I made for our family in 1969.
 5. Christmas train - loaded with M&Ms - I painted this in the 1980s - and every christmas it sits on the table and hauls its cargo of candy
One of my favorite Washington Ornaments - The Washington State Ferry decorated for christmas .  Santa won't forget the good boys and girls that live on the islands.
 And different kinds of trees - great for munching!
May your days be merry and bright!!!

collages and special effects are done on ipiccy.com and picmonkey.com

So much colour and fun things around your home and on the tree. Those tree plates of food look amazing especially the veggie one. Cute idea! Have a wonderful week and a blessed Christmas JoAnn! Hugs. Pam

You look all set for a great Christmas! I adore your Christmas stockings, they are wonderful aren't they, of course they look vintage now which is so fashionable so they are great on many fronts! Love your Christmas tree bowls for the foody bits too! Thank you for joining Five On Friday and making it a great thing this year. I so appreciate it! Happy Christmas! See you again in 2016! xx
