Vintage Christmas Angel
It is a time for new rituals! When my grand-daughter realised that we would be home for Christmas, her first question was - 'Are you putting up a Christmas tree?' Her second question was - 'Do you have a Christmas tree?' LOL!!! When the answer was yes - she asked could she help? My response was 'absolutely'!
So, last Sunday, after French toast for brunch (another tradition) we dragged the boxes out of the upstairs cupboard, coughing and sneezing from all the dust.
Once the tree was assembled, we decided on a red and gold theme and let my grand-daughter go to town! She wanted all of the decorations to be hung, with no rhyme nor reason.
However, when we unearthed our vintage Angel, Tasha had to attach her to the top of the tree.
(I was not very happy about this - as I do not celebrate Christmas! But I would do anything for my cherub! My mother informs me that I picked this lovely Angel out when I was three. She also told me that I would not let any other angel be used instead for the top of the tree. Do I sound like a spoiled brat?)
We hung apples, presents, mushrooms, gold and red beads, santas, everything but the kitchen sink. But no tinsel as Nanna does not approve! The result is a joyous mish-mash but it makes us smile every time we look at it. Thanks chook!
This may be our last post before January, 2011, so we would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you. Thanks to all the supporters of the shop and the website and this blog.
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! (Happy Summer Solstice too!)
