Day eight of this fabulous Christmas challenge hosted by Parajunkee
We don’t do much decorating. We just a a tree and some stockings, though we don’t even use them, just for decoration. One thing that we do is when we travel, we buy ornaments from the places we visit. We also have many ornaments even from our childhood. There are some that I made when I was a Girl Scout. Then it is a way to reminisce. They are almost better than photos, as we rarely go through old photo albums, but we put up the tree almost every year. This doesn’t make for the prettiest Christmas tree, but has tons of sentimental value. I used to put up a “pretty” tree in upstairs room, but I haven’t done that in several years. That tree is all blue and silver and matches well. Personally, I like this tree better.
I should also mention that the bookcase you see behind the tree is one of four and is the smallest of all my bookcases. #1 is very happy that I’ve bought a Kindle before we had to add on to the house. We have no more places for bookcases. 🙂
