This year I’ve let my daughter have a tree in the hall, and given her a huge box of decorations. The box was full of handmade decorations, some made by her through the few years of her life in nursery and school. It’s been a real journey of remembering watching her decorate the tree. She made one of the decorations at playgroup when she was only just 1! It’s great to see how she’s grown as some of the decorations she’s made at school have her photo on.
Once she had reminisced with me over all her decorations, she got out some of the decorations I’ve made over the last twenty years or so. I love the little snowballs at the bottom of the tree. They were some of the first decorations I made over twenty years ago. So there’s a real mix of little stockings, snowflakes, hearts and some Jean Greenhowe decorations (including the snowballs). We love our little handmade tree and long may we keep adding new decorations to it.
