With the arrival of snow this past week-end I decided to decorate for Christmas. I love lights at this time of the year. They bring cheer and warmth to the shorter days.
When I get out the decorations for the tree memories come flooding back. There are so many precious ornaments that I have received over the years.
This one was made by a friend that grows beautiful gourds and makes them into lovely decorative works of art.
Another fellow artisan carved this one out of bass wood and gave it to me several years ago.
There are many more...some are old and worn but they have a special place on my tree each year. They are cherished mementos that are priceless to me. As I hang them on the branches I hear voices and laughter that echo from the past. Once again Christmas has returned to my heart.
Thanks for letting me share some of my treasures with you. Have a wonderful evening. God bless!
