Remember When

Christmas Card by Meredith aka Merf

Christmas Cards

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.

  1. 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!
