Holiday Ornament

All of us are so busy and into the throes of all the holiday busyness that we need to remind ourselves to take time and smell the roses, or should I say smell the pines of the season.  I was recently was looking through some old photos and found this one I took of an ornament I have on my Christmas tree. I recall as a little girl sitting under the tree and reading books and admiring the ornaments, and this one being one of them. It was one of several that I have that were from my grandmother and her family from Germany.  I love old holiday traditions.  What are some of yours?

Speaking of the holidays, we have a few holiday winners we need to announce – NUMARI chose Renae as the winner of  the dress! Congrats to Renae and I hope she picks out a lovely style – well, they all are lovely and it’s going to be custom fit so there is no going wrong! Also congrats to Andrea, winner of the Sol Republic Jax Headphones!  Our current giveaway going on now is for the TATCHA Kirakira Holiday Gift Set.  Be sure to enter as the contest ends on Wednesday.  Thanks to everyone to reads Fab Over Forty and takes the time to enter when we have contests!
