what did I choose to add to my vintage Christmas collection this year?
I went with the old Shiny Brite mercury glass ornaments. And while I was leaning toward the blue/silver theme at one time, I finally went with red and gold. I recalled lying on the sofa staring at the tree while watching "White Christmas" last year, and it was the gold and red balls against the lights that really stood out. So that's what I decided to go with.
Last Christmas---as with most Christmases---I was a bit down due to my singlehood. This Christmas feels different. Not sure what brought on the change, but I hope it stays that way!
