Today I am joining Susan at Thoughts from Over the Rainbow for the first of the Christmas Parties..Please go over and see the festivities…
I am also joining Tam at The Gypsy’s Corner for 3 or more Tuesday..Thanks for hosting, Tam..
So are we all tripping over boxes and bins of decorations?? What a mess..plumping wreaths and fluffing bows?
And those lights…why do some of them go out after I have wrapped them in and out?? I keep saying I will just throw them away, but then dh has to see if he can find the problem. Many cusses later, some are saved, some are tossed!
My first of 3 or more is my Irish Nativity..see the little shamrocks?
I got it on one of my trips….Ireland? No, TJMAXX!
The second is a musical Nativity I gave my mom for her 65th bday. I remember buying it in VT. at a gift shop in Santa Land…It plays Silent Night… Her birthday is the 2nd…if she were alive she would be 96..I have wonderful memories of a very strong woman, widowed at 49, with a daughter in a wheelchair to take care of..and me, which wasn’t easy..:)
The third is a crystal one made by Dansk I have had for many years…I place it on the hallway table on a mirror surrounded by a lighted wreath…It is hard to get a good pic of it.
I am going to have to practice on that pic more! Christmas Eve when I put the fresh flowers into the mantle arrangement, I tuck fresh Baby’s Breath into the greens..
Thank you Susan for hosting what will be an on going party!
