I am going backward before I go forward.
Before I show you our first Christmas in our Homey…I want to show you our last Christmas in our Brookline, Ma. home.
Ever since I was a young gal, I have collected Christmas ornaments and décor.
I delivered newspapers as a young gal and saved up my Christmas tips to buy decorations…actually most of my Sickstas did the same thing…we all loved Christmas decorations.
Luckily I married a Jewish man who didn’t mind my Christmas décor fetish.
Come on in and take a look..
Notice the Menorah and Christmas tree.
A happy blending of traditions…
Living in a condo and having no yard to plant a real tree in…I opted for a fake tree…I used the same tree for many years.
Most from estate sales.
I put them in my antique glass vases..
Maybe around age 12..
My sweet Ballie playing with ribbon…
I miss that fur ball!
In the den…a new Santa surrounded by homemade decorations from my Aunt Diane.
I had a collection of antique birds..
Think these are in storage.
I hope you enjoyed the tour…
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy Holidays..
