Christmas spirit....

It was the fist of December for us here on Saturday and like many other families I know we marked a part of our day with putting up the Christmas Tree. It was lovely having the kids both so much more involved in the decorating of the tree. Master V is rather smitten with my retro Christmas decorations
I need share a little something with you all though and back track to Friday to tell you that on Friday morning I ventured to my favourite op shop as I often do with my little people in tow. Some of the volunteers there have become dear friends, and Friday morning I was very moved to be gifted this 1950's Dutch Christmas Wreath from my dear friend and her husband. They're in their 60's and 80's respectfully and it was given to me with such heartfelt words, tears in the eyes and hugs given. Such an honour and treasure and for that I am grateful and blessed.
Then just like that there's the Christmas spirit in the air. It's not about the big shiny boxes, it's about moments and honours like these.


  1. How lovely Trudie. It's gorgeous to boot. I remember we had one of those fuzzy felt on plastic santas. Mum brought it out every year but it was a larger one that stood on one leg on the china cabinet. Gorgeous decorations!

  2. What a gorgeous gift Trudie, no wonder it brought a tear to your eye. I know I would have! It's gifts like that, that remind you of what Christmas is really all about xx ps I love the vintage decorations too, I've kept some of the ones I got given as a child, so they're prolly bordering on vintage!
