Christmas Tree Farewell
Our family favorite for ornaments is hands down, the beaded ornaments or spaceships if you are speaking the mother tongue of the boy. They were a gift handed down from my great aunt Lena from Virginia. She started giving them away in 1953. The story is she would get old jewelry, break it up into pieces and use it to make many of the beads for the ornaments. Most of them are in amazing condition. I have two kits for making beaded ornaments. I have had them for a couple of years. I say that I am going to start the tradition again but then the holidays swoop in and I barely have time to get the cookies baked and the presents wrapped.
I might just make them this year....now is the time to start.....be good and I may give you one!
