Christmas Baubles! That’s what I wanted to talk about. Pretty, entrancing, delicate baubles…. All vintage, of course!
I don’t believe that ‘less is more’ when it comes to dressing a Christmas tree, the ‘more the merrier’ is what I say (heartily said and maybe with a deep voice!) and our family tree is this statement personified!
It’s always crammed full with tinsel, fairy lights or as I like to call them Fury Lights, new (ish) baubles, vintage family baubles; many with sentimental value, or just baubles attached with plain old favouritism- they are all there, in a variety of shapes, materials and colours. Tis all beautiful in my eyes.
My cheery paper tat! >
I quite amazed myself today, when I totted around the boudoir, to find my decorations in readiness for the taking of the pictures….. Cor blimey, the amount I have amassed (with the help of ma!) lets just say…. I’m all right Jack, when the time comes for me to have a Christmas tree of my very own! It’s quite the little collection. * squeals with excitement*
There’s just something more appealing about the traditional Christmas decorations- they are as mouth-wateringly yummy to me as a jar of brightly coloured sweets, so delicate are the ones made from glass, which makes them all the more precious and jewel like. The colours are rather gaudy at times but also surprising tasteful- mind you, you might think otherwise as my definition of ‘taste’ is a lot different to others! I suppose you could say they are quaint, a little bizarre perhaps (?), but not at all flashy in the same way as their modern counterparts…….
…thought I might add, that I’m desperately trying to think of some yummy bright coloured sweets, but all I can think of are Chocolate B^^ pretty lovelies- I especially like the ones where the design is pressed into the bauble- such pretty colours too!
and well, they are just brown! razils
