These are special days to spend time by the light of the wonderful Christmas trees.It's such a peaceful time also effects my lovely boys, they love to sleep in this peaceful situation.
My tree is an artificial one, I don't like to buy natural tree because we live in an apartment building, I don't have a garden to plant it after Christmas. At least I can save a small tree each year;-)
I had many vintage ornaments but I'm so sad that nearly a dozen of them broken a few years ago. Now, I keep precisely rest of them. I remember all those old ornaments of my childhood, each of them had another beauty, they were so fragile but they were wonderful.
There was a small shop where my grandma was living. I never forget those lovely Christmas decorations of that shop. In those years there were no sprays, etc to make snow on to windows, the shop owners were making snow images with cottons! Also, they were also selling lovely colognes, I still remember the lovely smell of that small shop. In addition, our small escapes with my gradma, we were visiting that shop, she was buying her needs and of course something for me:) By the way, I must add that my grandma was a super talented Lady, a master quilter, crocheter, knitter. I've learned how to stitch and knit from her...RIP...I miss her a lot... Today we have so many lovely things but "those were the days" so different, are you agree with me???
