I was a Christmas Decoraholic~

Howdee all,

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.
