Topic for the day is: First Christmas on your own.
We were married November 3rd, 1973.
It seemed like in no time at all Christmas had arrived. We did not have a lot of money to spend on decorating. I however, insisted on a real Christmas tree. We lived in a very tiny apartment so we purchased a very tiny tree we could set on our very tiny table. I bought a package of ornaments and strung cranberries and popcorn and that was the extent of the Christmas decorating. No skirt. No tree topper.
Whatever it was - it made Bruce happy.
I purchased calico and pin dot fabrics at our local Ben Franklin. Remember pin dots? It seems like I sewed forever before I was finished.
I have kept some of the ornaments and still hang them on my tree. I eventually made the tree skirt and wreath.
As we looked through the boxes of pictures - yes mine are in boxes -in no particular order - Our little tree looked better every year. We worked hard and experienced some success. Eventually we were able to buy a house.
Now we can buy a tree that sits on the floor
I know this was supposed to be about our first Christmas but you really needed to see two and three to appreciate one.
We have been blessed.
I am off to check out all of the other designer's blogs to read about their first Christmas on their own.
The topic will be: A kid story, either about your kids if you have any or other kids, even yourself.
From my heart,
