Last weekend was fairly Christmassy–I spent part of Saturday decorating, and part of Sunday wrapping presents. I have a small apartment, so I just get a little tree to set on a table. But I seem to have bought small presents this year, so everything fit under it too.
I discovered that the tree looked far more interesting photographed in the dark!
I also put up my musical shepherds every year.
These gentlemen and their flock were part of my grandpa’s Christmas decorations when he was growing up, so they’re probably about 75 years old. You can still see the price stamped on some of the pieces: each sheep was five cents, and each shepherd was twenty-nine cents!
Here’s a closer view. I love how each shepherd is so individual, with his own personality. Some day I must write a story about them. They’re a bit worn–but that just means they have history!
What are your favorite holiday decorations? I’d love to hear about them!
