  1. Clara Sue Griffis Arnsdorff: I loved reading about Linda (Phelps McKee)’s many ventures—and seeing the beautiful pictures of her home.  She has a true talent for decorating. I especially loved the National Geographic framed collection–that is a truly novel idea.  I also spotted some antique or repro iron banks atop a ledge over the framed collection.
    I share the charges of being a ‘hoarder’ as I too enjoy antiques and have an antique space which needs to be replenished frequently….gives me a chance to visit estate/garage sales, but the current problems have slowed that considerably. I understand the need we both have to ‘collect’. 
    I enjoyed Chinky’s story so much—what a wonderful life she has had. 

  2. Linda Shelby Lyons: Congrats to Linda McKee for her beautiful Christmas decorations. I would love to see them. I remember the bubble lights and angel hair and loved both. I have a few ornaments I saved from my childhood but rarely decorate anymore. It’s just too much trouble to put stuff up then to take it down again.

  3. Carolyn Wolf Lloyd: I loved reading about Linda Phelps McKee.  She has had a wonderful and interesting life.  Her home is absolutely beautiful.  I am quite envious of all the Christmas trees.  I used to decorate my one tree with lots of ornaments from places we had been, but it got to be such a hassle to take them all down and store them away that I hardly put up any decorations at all now.  I guess I am just getting very lazy.
