MERRY CHRISTMAS &
HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL
This little doll was made by my mother before she died. She loved Christmas and would spend hours making decorations for the tree and the house. Our home for Christmas was a wonderland, decorations everywhere, no corner escaped a toy, a doll, a reindeer and/or any one of the many Santas in her collection or the decorations she made with such care and joy. Her tree would be dripping ornmaments and this ornament was one of them.
This porcelain brooch is not really a Christmas ornament but a Christmas gift from my father-in-law to my mother-in-law. Then, in 2004, my mother-in-law gave it to me to hang on the tree, the very first Christmas she spent with Rob and I. This ornament and the angel that goes on the top are the last ornaments to be placed on the tree as they are always given noticable places on the tree.
Christmas is a time for family, memories, traditions and treasured hand-me-downs.
