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!
I think I’ve mentioned in previous posts we decided to not put up our large formal tree. That’s due to me breaking my wrist and it was just too much to think about. My sis-in-law and niece came up a couple of Sundays ago and we put up two small trees. The first one in the Den with old fashioned Santa’s and Snowmen.
The second tree is in the Family room, small but pretty with red and green balls.
Better late then never. Linking up to a couple Christmas parties…
