One thing I love about this time of year is all the bright, pretty colours everywhere! Even though I wasn’t looking for decorations, I found myself rooting through a huge box of Christmas tree baubles in the Salvation Army shop on Thursday just because they were shiny. At 25p for a bag of eight, I couldn’t resist buying these old thread baubles to decorate future presents with:
We used to have loads of those in amongst our decorations when I was small. Funny how a bauble can trigger lots of childhood memories 🙂
We used to have big foam baubles with shiny ribbons pinned around them. My mum’s aunt had made them. So dangerous, but I loved picking them apart and putting them back together again (when my mum was out of the room!).
I remember these on our tree! I love these.
Merry Christmas ^_^
They’re so pretty – much more interesting than the plastic ones! And strokeable.
