Merry Christmas!! And here are some postcards from my grandmother Arkebauer that depict some Alpine Children/Dolls in various poses. This is my last post this year from the Box of Postcards that my cousin Holly sent to me. I hope you enjoyed seeing them as much as I did!!

Many many of my ornaments come from my travels and since I don't stop traveling, I always have new ornaments for my Christmas Tree every year!
|From Yosemite, this was actually a keychain. I did not like any of their ornaments for sale in the shops or I thought they were too expensive, so I got this keychain and repurposed it!|
|This fish from Portugal was also not a traditional ornament. I think it was meant to be a sachet for your closet or drawers.|
|I did a lot of wine tasting in 2016 and this ornament was purchased during one of those trips.|
|Now Shenandoah NP had some lovely Christmas Ornaments! It was difficult to chose just one to bring home.|
|This little painted snowman is from St. Petersburg, Russia|
|This metal ornament from Germany unfortunately blends into the tree and does not stand out very much. I have to remember where I placed it, or it might get left on the tree when I put everything away in January.|
|I have not visited the Almanzo Wilder Homestead (yet), but my friend, Lea did and she gave me this ornament as a memento|
