Remember when we decorated doorways and arches with Christmas Cards? It was a simpler time. The tree went up on Christmas Eve and an evergreen scent, hard to described, filled our hearts and minds. Today I shop for a fragrant candle to duplicate the scent unsuccessfully. The reality of a fresh Frasier Fur tree is short lived, needles drop quickly and the tree is so perfectly trimmed it appears to be a fake.
Over the years I’ve saved cards that were too pretty or special to toss and tuck them inside the branches (fake or real) of our tree. They bring me a smile. Below are some of my favorite ornaments. I have many birds on my tree.
. . . just saying

Thanks, Claudia, for this sentimental post. My granddaughter helps with decorating our tree, and comments about how old-looking so many of our ornaments are. We explain that they are from my grandmother, and they are a family heirloom. Some of them came from Germany after the war. She has a hard time understanding all that. Always enjoy your posts, Claudia!
Chris, Your words are generous and very appreciated. Many of our ornaments are handed down and look poorly in natural light, but on our tree they make the season bright. Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Dear Friend! Give our love to Mr. Wonderful .. xoxoxo
