The joy of the season has arrived and collections that have created traditions over the years are being unboxed and unwrapped.............each and every one creating a memory. As the former owner of a very special shop, you just have to know that I have some pretty wonderful collections. It went like this..........As I shopped the markets in preparation for the Christmas holidays, I would buy some for the shop and some for the shop owner!!!!!!! Hmmmm.
One of my very favorite things to do every year was to put a a small lit Christmas tree on each child's dresser and now they are grown with children of their own. I still put those trees in every room of the house and it creates an instant warmth that is so inviting and cozy! My kitchen tree is dressed in white lights and is filled with antique sterling silver baby cups (theirs, that I still can't part with), teething rings, rattles, family heirloom silver treasures and spoons, sterling silver napkin rings and just about anything else that is appropriate and fitting for this tree.
