~ Priceless ~

( My grandmother and Santa Claus )

Hi friends
When I was going through some photos I found my favourite photo of my grandmother on Santa's lap
Isn't she darling?!


I love this photo and decided to put it on my inspiration board
My grandmother is so special to me.We have always been close and we are the best of friends
I took her to her first antiques fleamarket a few weeks ago! :)
(my beautiful grandmother at 2nd Saturdayz Fleamarket)


I love how my grandmother is looking up at Santa
~ Priceless ~

We are going to a Christmas tree lighting this weekend in a charming German town called Leavenworth,WA.
This is one of my familys favourite traditions.
Have a wonderful week and weekend everyone!!
xo,
Rachel

The picture is priceless for sure. Look like an advertisement. Is Santa's beard real? My grandfather played Santa at my church when I was little. He did it every year. I don't know if there are any pictures of him but will now make sure and find out. Have a great holiday season.

Hi Rachel, This is a most adorable photo of your grandma looking up at Santa! Keep and treasure that one. I like how you took her to the flee market, and she thoroughly enjoyed herself. I am enjoying your blog.
Have a great day. :)
