So you see — my mind is LOCKED on two things. #1 Erin is coming home from Dublin tomorrow! YAY!! and #2 We will decorate the Christmas Tree tomorrow! YAY again!
A silly thing that I’m thinking about. Some time-honored traditions from the past are hard to find in these modern times. Example: Tinsel. Yea, tinsel! I LOVE TINSEL! My mom would let us kids just DRAPE the tree in tinsel. That thing could stop traffic, it was so shiny.
One year I went out to buy tinsel, and……WHAT??? I couldn’t find it anywhere. Store owners in the area, repeating something about it being a fire hazard…blah blah blah. I finally found it in a dollar store somewhere…..a place where — let’s face it — MOST THINGS in that store are a fire hazard! I bought two boxes, and since then — well — my taste and sense of style has ‘matured’ over the years — those 2 boxes have lasted almost 6 years. LMAO, yes yes — just a little sparkle and glitter on my tree these days, so you can actually SEE the tree, BUT STILL — TINSEL, GOTTA HAVE IT!
So here’s to TINSEL. Most certainly a happy thing 🙂 #100happydays (35/100)
Ciao for now…..Diane
