Last of the Twelve Days of Christmas.
I'm reminded of the link it has to Christmases from times past. The wonderful baubles, some really old ones belonged to my Maternal Grandmother, now safely in my care. I remember those from my childhood. Others that were my Mothers'. A vast collection also, of ones our children made when they were small, special pieces as gifts from friends, our collection over our married life, along with a special dowel tree devoted to hand made & stitched ornaments, some from friends & some from other stitchers.
The sitting room now looks every so naked, devoid of all the wonderful pieces that have enhanced this room & our home over the Christmas celebration.
The absent tree, pack away in the loft, leaves a bare tree skirt, which will also be stored away until it is needed for Christmas 2017. It has graced one of our trees every year, since 1985.
