Borrowed Christmas

I am finally walking, but climbing stairs up to my junk room is still a dream of 2016. I can't even go up to bring down the Christmas ornaments or to check to see if I am the guilty one who has been hiding my Mammaw's unfinished quilt top.

Oh, well (as my dear mother always said).

So yesterday I went back over to my mom's house and brought home a box of Christmas ornaments that no one seems to have tagged. There is a fiber optic Christmas tree, a wreath with jingle bells, a few hand decorated ornaments, a garland, and lots of twinkling lights. That will probably be the extent of my decorating this year.

Oh, and I found a real Gurley Santa candle (never burned) and these twirling angels with one "dangle" missing.

More photos to follow after I "decorate."

Who says a plastic wreath isn't nice. This one looks good on my corner cabinet.

Still a bummer, isn't it. I cannot raise my arm, although I'm working on it.

I loved those metal twirling Angels! They didn't light them often, I bet they are the originals!
