I'm beginning to slowly build my collection of Christmas ornaments, and I've decided that I like angels. I have a couple lovely candlesticks, a beautiful ornament I was given as a gift last Christmas - the collection is growing. When I saw these in a little dollar bag at Value Village this week, I knew they belonged to me.
My grandmother has the most beautiful angel bells that she was given as a gift in 1958 - her first Christmas as a married woman. They come out every year and get placed on the old clock. The little candle holders remind me of those bells. I've always loved my grandmother's older ornaments. There is something special about little things that have been witness to Christmases gone by.
