It is so nice when everything old becomes new again. When I was little my grandparents had some wonderful Christmas decorations. I was fortunate enough have become the keeper of them for hopefully generations to come. Some of my favourites got lost or broken over the years before I got them. What I wish I had are the Bottle Brush Christmas Trees, the tiny Christmas Houses and the Celluloid reindeer.
I have one reindeer. I do not know what happened to the rest. There used to be a whole set with Santa in his sled that sat on the dining table. I cherish my one lone reindeer even with his broken antler.
None of the bottle brush trees made it. I loved them, tiny little jewels sitting on the cupboards or tucked away on a table. My grandmother had some lovely ones encrusted with tiny ornaments that looked like jewels to me.
I would love to have a whole collection of bottle brush trees. A little forest glistening with snow.
When I was shopping in HomeSense last week, I saw they had brought out a lovely collection of these little houses. I have seen them before but usually a modern, larger version. HomeSense had adorable little ones that were in the pastel shades and the snow looked just like the old ones.
There is a special place in my heart for that little reindeer and the few houses I possess but it is nice to see the old decorations coming back and looking just like they did way back then. I will buy some of the newer versions because I still have the same memories when I look at them sitting with the tiny reindeer with the broken antler.
