The Memory Tree

The Memory Tree

The Memory Tree

Tell me, tell me what you see? A Christmas Tree? No, no this is a memory tree. Such a spell it weaves for me I see my children’s lives opening a rewind, that is what I see. Tiny toys and decorations made with love a Santa stuffed with wool and a star made from an old glove.

A drummer boy an angel too all kinds of pretties made from coloured paper, sparkles and glue. Some were made at Nursery or school and some at home, what fun we had it was all so cool. There is an angel on the highest branch she looks like she is smiling at a glance.

Tiny little bags for sweets, tinkly bells and balls, all kinds of treats. Lighting up the living room sweeping joy before it like a broom. Tiny lights and brassy beads everything a memory tree needs.All the decorations made by the children with love. Looking back with help from up above.

The years pass by, I see them grow but the love from the tree still seems to flow.The boys all grown and moved away  but they all remember the things they made. When they visit on Christmas day. There is so much love and fun invested in the decorations for the tree we could never throw any of them away , you see. They mean too much to the family and me!

The Drummer Boy

The Drummer Boy

Here is the drummer boy, he is really older, he is mine from an even earlier time. He holds memories that bring me joy my bright and smart drummer boy.

There is nothing like a Christmas tree to make us smile and awake old memories. Christmas decorations bring such joy to old or young be you girl or boy. So decorate your Memory Tree with love and joy and fun and when you need a lift, gaze at your tree and happy memories will come.

 

 

 

Christmas Tree with new blue lights

He looks so smart

Finally he is now out of the frost and cold in our living room now looking fabulous, resplendent in silver blue and gold.

I am so pleased to see him safe inside because we have loved and looked after him I would of been heart broken had he died.

We bought him some lovely new blue lights we have never used before we have had red before , but not any more.

So now I am beginning to feel the Christmas spirit  the lovely bestest  tree is here and my wishes and hopes are in it.

The Christmas Tree

waiting to come in

Sitting the garden , he’s been there all year,waiting and growing happily and now his time is nearly here. He has been moved from the rockery to the patio he is so excited for his next move will be back indoors you know!!

He is patiently waiting in the freezing cold, wind and rain for his second chance to be decorated again! Last year he so bedazzled us we were all fair speechless and soon he will be resplendent  all decked out in his Christmas completeness!

Will it be tomorrow or will it be Saturday no one really knows the answer is hard to say! He already looks so lovely his beautiful bluey, green I really think that he is the bestest tree I have ever seen.
