When I opened the last storage bin of Christmas stuff this week there were the stockings and pillows and lots of wadded up tissue paper. I went through it carefully. I came across an ornament of my mother-in-law who passed away 17 years ago. I was surprised to find and actually wondered why now. I keep most of her keepsakes, as well as my mom and dad’s, in memory boxes.
I’m getting sidetracked. Sorry. This is the ornament I found …
I love this. It’s so fragile. It’s inspired me to start looking at thrift shops more. In the interim, I’ve decorated my little tree in our den with fakes. There, I said it. Fake vintage ornaments that really don’t even look like vintage ornaments, but I still like them.
My mother-in-law loved this time of year. She’s doing a dance right now happy the ornament is hung.
So what about you? Do you put up more than 1 tree? Big, little, theme? And by the way, Happy Friday!
