Candle wreaths

Candle wreaths

These candle wreaths are vintage 40's and came from my grandmother's home in Vermont. These are a treasure for me and I enjoy them each year as they bring me back many years to my childhood. I have 17 of them, enough to light all my front windows and one side of my house seen from the street.

I totally understand about the wreaths.
I have some decorations which go back to childhood Christmases. :o)
This looks very pretty.

Christmas brings so many memories. I also have some childhood decorations although I don't put them up now because they're so delapidated.

They are wonderful, Mike. They lit your childhood and awaken the spirit of Christmas for you, every year of your life...I think that's a terrific gift from your Gram. I especially enjoy seeing them pictured through a screen of your houseplants!...(love the cactus!) Joyeux noel!

I don't have any going back to my childhood but I do have them from when my children were growing up. They enjoy seeing them on the tree when they visit, and I look after them with the aim of passing them on.
