Old Favourites

Hello, lovely blog readers!  

Thank you SO much for your lovely messages following my last post.  I'm feeling a lot better now - and it feels so good to be out of hospital!  We drove back to the UK for Christmas on Sunday (I was worried that the doctor would put a stop to our plans, but he said travelling would be fine).  So now I'm being spoilt and well-looked-after by Simon AND all of my family!!!

Every year, when we're back home for Christmas, one of my first tasks is ALWAYS to find all my 'old favourite' decorations on my parents' tree - the ones I remember most from my childhood.  This time, I thought I'd take a few photos and share a few of them with you..... 

[This one's my all-time favourite!  He's a lot older than me - and very delicate and precious!] 

[I think this one's just fun!  It was the first ever non-glass decoration that Mom permitted on to our tree] 

[This is the sparkliest of them all!  It's older than me, again, but still glistens beautifully when the fairy lights are on!]

Well, I took a few more photos that I wanted to share with you.  But the light didn't want to play nicely yesterday (it barely got light all day long), so lots of them didn't turn out.  Never mind!  I can show you some more another time. 

Do you have favourite Christmas decorations that you look forward to seeing each year???

  2. Hello, I spotted your Santa on someone's sidebar so had to pop over and say hello! My folks have one too, and he was always my favourite. As an adult I've been collecting vintage glass decorations for a while and am a bit obsessed!

  3. Glad you are starting to feel better.
    We used to have the same Santa stocking ornament when I was a kid! I still have a special bauble from my 1st Christmas that has my name on. It has now moved on from Mum's tree to mine.

    Have a fantastic Christmas! x
