My first antique ornaments… A tragic story…
My husband and I before we were married decided to have a Christmas Tree. It was in my parents kitchen, since I was still living at home. Kitchen floor… means tile floor. The previous summer, I had picked up very fragile blown glass ornaments at the Flea Market at Dart Airport. I had a box for them and a dozen in total. The box had poland written on them and details on the bulbs. Alas, I no longer have the box!
Why? Well that first tree took numerous tumbles on the floor.
This is why I only will use an old fashion metal stand.
The plastic stand we thought was the newest and best was unstable and evil.
So every Christmas I hang my 3 little ornaments on the tree and take a deep breath!
If I loose these last three I may just collapse!
