childhood Christmas memories ~

This year I have had my camera close by recording the special things around the house that I hold dear and enjoy bringing out each year when we start preparing for Christmas. I thought I would share a few with you and perhaps something will spark a happy memory from your childhood Christmas as well.

This Christmas tree was used at my Grandmother's house,

this music box sat on our console TV in the living room,
