My first are two carol singers who belonged to my late Mother in law, she sadly died on Christmas day 16 years ago. She is remembered on a daily basis, but these are a treasured heirloom and make us all smile. Everyone has a story to tell about Grandma.
The plate behind reminds me of our three girls when they were small so links to the carol singers nicely.
My second choice is a bauble with entwined wedding rings, that is part of a set that was bought to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary by my parents. The whole family celebrated when we all went to Disneyworld together. Wonderful memories, the year of a million wishes where we were treated like royalty.
My daughter went to university in Southampton so it became a ritual to meet in London in December. We loved the Harrods Christmas department and my daughter treated me to a bauble every year. When all three girls worked and lived in London prior to starting their families we all met up for afternoon tea and the bauble treat. This is just one from the wonderful collection.
Many years ago my niece got married in December and I was asked to help. I made some beautiful lace toppers for gold wrapped chocolates and still hang some on the tree. A wonderful memory, they are still very happily married and have been blessed with seven children.
Finally, a part of lives were spent in the military so we lived for many years in Germany and always had a trip to Holland for the St Nicolas celebrations. We bought a Christmas plate with St Nicolas and Peter on which always evokes some really fond memories.
Five beautiful memories that are a big part of the ritual of decorating the family home. I am once again joining Amy over at Love Made My Home for the weekly meme.
See you soon.
