Do you have that one decoration that without it, it just wouldn't be Christmas? The one item that you pull out of its storage container, look at it and smile a little smile while your heart warms with joy?
I have that decoration. My mother had this decoration in her home while I was growing up. At one point in my mom's life she decided to get creative and started doing ceramics. Ceramics was BIG in the 70s and I remember my mom going over to do ceramics with her friends and from time to time bringing back some fun items.
Here is my special decoration:
These ceramic Mr. and Mrs. Claus have been in our home for decades now. They have found themselves in many places in our home. They are rather large, so they make an impression where ever they land. One year they sat on the floor by the candy tree. They often sit on the kitchen table, and one year they were on top of the hutch. No matter what, these cheerful decorations find a place at our home during Christmas.
What is your decoration that you just can't wait to take out of the box? Linking up with Mary at Mosaic Monday!
