Get Rid Of The Advertisements

An Old-fashioned Christmas in America
 



Christmas Around The Globe
Host: Dream Girl




A surprise on Christmas Eve

Our family tree will be decorated
with needlework created by
Grandmother Edith
along with other treasures
she held dear

Although her Spirit is in
Heaven with the Angels
we will pay tribute to her
beautiful needlework
while on this planet called Earth

Antique postcards and
handkerchiefs embroidered
with birds and flowers
with pine cones tucked inside
to hang on branches with silver ribbons

Pill box hats decorated with
violets and roses and fragile veils
Classic cameo ornaments from
the Old Country of Hungary
given to her by her Mother-in-law

Antique glass balls and ribbon-tied
prisms
Dainty french netting filled
with Potpourri tied with golden
ribbons onto tiny lights of
many colors shining through the night


Pearls and lace entwine around the tree
Remembering quiet days of playing
dress-up in Grandmother's clothes,
wearing her hats and gloves and
having tea in china painted cups
painted so tenderly by
Grandmother Edith

Grandmother's tree will be
fondly remembered in the
years to come
Strands of lace and pearls
entwined around the tree will be
sewed into wedding dresses for
granddaughter's legacies
