DECORATING WITH CHRISTMAS CARDS
     Over the years Janine and I received many Christmas cards and we always used them to decorate our home. These days I receive several Christmas cards via the internet. Those that I get through the post I still use to decorate areas of our home. Do you still get many Christmas cards in the post? If so, how do you use them to decorate areas in your home? Now I mainly place them on the bookshelf in my room or on tables in our living-room. Below are pictures that Janine and I took beside our Christmas card decorations.

Thanks Clairejustine. We receive many cards from relatives, friends and pen-pals. Take care.

Fifi @ AboutBloggingTime! said...

Wow, great photo's! I guess we have lots of lazy friends, because for the past couple of years we get phone texts!! What is that?? lol! I mail out at least 25-30 cards every December!

Judy Haughton-James said...

Hi Fifi,
Thanks for your comments. Phone texts! I have not gotten any of those yet but they could be coming this Christmas. I had better sharpen up my texting!LOL Take care and enjoy the rest of your day.

I hardly receive physical cards nowadays too. Lovely that you and your sis wore matching dresses, even into adulthood :)

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks Ai! That reminds me of the lovely picture of you and your daughter in the matching dresses. Love it!:)

Sandee said...

I love all the dresses that are alike. Way cool. You both are so beautiful in these photographs.

I used to do the same thing with Christmas cards but now they seem to get tossed after Christmas. Shame on me.

Have a terrific day. :)

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

I love to see Christmas cards displayed. :D I have a cute little holder for our cards.

Nice photos, Judy!

cheerfulnuts said...

I can't believe I still get amazed seeing pictures of twins! You two looked like mirrors.:) My twin and I stopped wearing the same clothes during our adolescence (but we do borrow each others' clothes LOL).
I don't get a lot of Christmas cards. I don't know why. Maybe my family and friends aren't so fond of Christmas cards. I keep my precious cards inside a box.:)

Judy Haughton-James said...

Hi cheerfulnuts,
Thanks for your comments. These days I get several cards via the internet! Take care and have a good day.
Judy

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks Ricki! Your card holder filled with cards must look lovely. Have a good day.

i save all of my cards. and often read them...especially on days where i'm feeling extra sentimental.

Hi Maria,
Thank you so much for your kind comments. It is really great to get cards. I am like my mother. She has kept cards for many years and has some cute ones that she received when Janine and I were very young!:) I am happy to be in the month of December and despite all the internet problems I am determined to feel good!:) Take care and a wonderful weekend and holiday season to you and Steve.
Lots of Love & Best Wishes,
Judy

Wonderful memories to have these photos taken throughout the years. We no longer receive many cards and we haven't been sending them out as most of us keep in-touch electronically.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks Karen! It is the same here these days. Many cards are being sent and received electronically. Take care and enjoy the holiday season.

Halina said...

You two are the cutest twins. I'm so sorry to hear that you have lost her... That must have been like losing a part of one self.

I'm delighted to be your new follower :D

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks for becoming a Follower and sharing your kind comments Halina. It has not been easy but I am fighting on. Take care and have a good week.
