What nice memories! Going through her collection must have been like a treasure hunt!
It was both sad (because she was gone) and delightful. My Momma had written the name and date of the person who gave her things on each item. We (my 3 siblings and I) would remember stories of when she got something or things she had told us about her collectibles. She was very particular about decorating her tree. She insisted she do it all as each ornament had it's on space on her tree. If you dare to put one on there, she would wait until she thought you weren't looking then put it where she wanted it. (This was after all four of us were grown and living on our own) When we were young, we helped decorate the tree.If I said I wasn't putting up a tree (I live at the end of a dead end street) because no one would see it (you can't drive by my house) she would tell me I decorated the tree for me, not others. And I do love looking at my tree and thinking of momma and my sister. It's funny, if someone helps me decorate the tree I find myself sometimes re-doing the placement of the ornaments and I think, oh, that's what Momma used to do.
Just reading your post.
We don’t have any children. So putting up and decorating The fir tree is a time we have together. Working on something together. We have collected and have been given our decorations/memories from holidays, family and friends.
My beloved puts the ornaments on the tree after I’ve unwrapped them. When I pick one from the box, I unwrap from the tissue paper. Say something, sometimes about who, maybe where and when we got. He then picks it up and looks at it. I can see and hear from the comments about it. We are sharing the same memories. Something so precious, that we have been allowed to share for another time, such a little time.
So thank you for bringing these memories back to us. By you sharing yours.
P.S. he allows me to move some of the ornaments....it just wouldn’t be right, if he didn’t and I didn’t.
Thank you, Tracy
I love reading your posts. You are so funny, so helpful and so caring. I have no beloved so I do all the decorating. But, it still brings back good memories. Happy to share with you. I wrap mine in tissue paper, too. I have an ornament my Momma gave me in 1974. I double wrap it as it is blown glass she purchased in Tennessee.
I am glad he allows you to move some of the ornaments LOL!! I decorate, look, re-decorate. Next day, wait that needs to go here so it takes a few days to get all the decorations exactly where I want them.
You're Welcome, Kate
Do you think, there are more people like us, who move the ornaments around for a few days. Or is it just a handful of .....
Thank you, your post are the same to me. I love reading them.
Take care as always, Tracy
There are probably a lot more like us. I know both kinds, those who put it up that's it and those who take several days to get it just right.
Keep on keeping on-Kate
Great job! You go girl.
Thanks Di...I am going LOL!!
WooHoo - got your Little Elephant. He takes a while to win. Congrats. Your were really busy in the FE and got so much done. Next FE will go easier as a result.
Thanks Dats!! I love that Little Elephant. Roll Tide!!! This FE and CC was much easier than the SE/CC. I hope the WE/CC is just as easy. I enjoy playing this game so much. I think sometimes it saves my sanity or else makes me insane not sure which!! See ya in the castle.
