Gattina of Writer Cramps hosts Fun Monday today. She asks:
Just take a picture of one Christmas ornament which you love the most, explain why, and if you don’t have any explanations it’s also OK. For those who haven’t celebrated Christmas, just take a picture of something else you love as decoration.
I don’t really have a single ornament–lots of things got lost in various moves, many of the best ornaments went to my sisters who have trees–but I love the decor Mom and I put up right outside our apartment.
We put them together little by little, from things we got at different times. The “snow” is actually a piece of a mattress pad that became worn out. The little sleigh was purchased at Tuesday Morning on clearance–we weren’t sure exactly how we were going to use it. The snowmen statuettes were from the dollar store, I think. And the two large lighted snowmen were a more recent addition, either from QVC or Cracker Barrel.
Put them together, and they’re a bit cute, a bit cheesy, but it became special because it was something we put together in order to have a bit of tradition of our own. Our apartment is small, inside and out, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun with our decor!
Now go visit Writer Cramps and see who else is playing.
