"Fa La, La, La, La..."

A few more ornaments...several of these on the "antique" side...
all of which have decked the halls
of many a Christmas past...
each one with its own story...each one a treasure.

"Nostalgia is like a grammar lesson:
you find the present tense, but the past perfect!"

Just read your beautiful post Fa la la - Love the sketched items with your delightful squiggly writing and the Pomeroy quotation. Its wonderful isnt it looking round ones home and remembering who and when the various items were given to you. Happy Christmas wished to you and yours.

Beautiful composition! Christmas ornaments are the perfect possessions - easy to take care of and full of such memories when they are unpacked and displayed each year.
