And so this is Christmas

We put up the tree this weekend even though it was hard to concentrate... pulled out all the ornaments and laid them all out

the vintage ones from the train store in Newton

the ones made from 50's Christmas cards we found in the antique server we bought a few years ago

the pine cones from Lillian Vernon

and all the others from Lillian Vernon

the nutcrackers and icicles

...after the lights went on, twice because I started backwards and had to begin again, we spent the weekend slowly adding on

until we had no more

and it made us smile...and hopeful.

and if this doesn't make you feel better, not a heck of a lot will.


  1. What a glorious abundance of ornaments! I really love the vintage ones from the train store. It made me flash on the movie The Station Agent--one of my favorites.

    Your tree is beautiful. I love winter evenings, looking at the lights.

  2. OOh! Is that your Christmas tree? It's great having a look to your Christmas
