A Look at The Featherweight Shop Christmas Past
by Featherweight Shop Staff

As this year comes to a close, it is the perfect time to reminisce on Christmas past! It can bring a few feelings of melancholy to look back on these sweet photos of Ruthie and Christian as little children full of Christmas anticipation. If only there could be one more squeeze from those little arms, but we are grateful to God for the incredible young adults they have become. Each Christmas passing brings more memories and traditions into the home and a moment of thankfulness for how the family has grown. Follow along with a trip down memory lane...

Each year April would make sugar cookies with the kids and their cousins. 



A favorite photo of Christian and Ruthie from this time period. Ruthie still enjoys making and decorating and Christian still loves eating Christmas sugar cookies!

Each year, Ruthie decorates a gingerbread house. 



With The Featherweight Shop's love of vintage memorabilia...


...antique Christmas postcards are still collected to decorate the house. 

  
In 2021, "the kids" requested a new set of stockings. April sewed each of these, incorporating fabric to match each person's personality. 

Stockings (new!) hung by the chimney with care! 

 

 
Festive Frosted Mistletoe Margaritas to celebrate with family and friends.

Matching pyjamas all around! 

 

Christmas morning lemon crepes with raspberry sauce and whipped cream!

 

Featherweight Christmas ornament

In 2022, a limited edition blown glass Featherweight ornament was procured.  Perhaps, we will have them again one day.

 

2023 ~ The gingerbread house Ruthie made this year was actually an old-fashioned church. 

 

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas from our family to yours!
