If I would have to choose between past and future guess what I would choose.
I’m sure you were sure that I would say PAST, without too much thinking. Well, yes. 360 days out of 365, at least. But I’m a gemini, remember? 🤷🏼♀️
But when it comes to Christmas, to Christmas traditions, Christmas outfits or Christmas decorations, then I would choose past over future. Or present. Or anything else. Everytime. Because everything must be as it was in my childhood (except the new Christmas tradition of always fostering one extra dog for this period). Even if I’m not a big fan of this holiday per se. Or, I wasn’t. 👀 (F*ck you evil twin! Leave me alone! Now you even make me kinda love Christmas? Seriously?..)
Last year I found the most beautiful Christmas tree ornaments at a charity fair. All vintage of course… Then I remembered that we must have some more from my childhood (and hers) at my moms as well, which she never uses, and I took them home too. This year I kept buying. Until I had enough. Well… kinda. Because you just can’t have enough, can you? 🙈
But the point is that now I have literally NOTHING new on my tree, except the 4 ornaments I bought for our very first Christmas tree 5 years ago. Which are always present ever since, therefore totally part of our tradition already (and slowly becoming vintage as well, because we’re not getting any younger either).
I am planning to buy more vintage ornaments each year. I’m afraid I’ve started another collection. 🤷🏼♀️ Seriously, something’s terribly wrong with me. Each time I buy something cool I’m like. “Nice, let’s have more and make it a collection.” 😅
What are you collecting? If you’re intrested in colecting vintage Christmas tree ornaments as well, here‘s my favorite Instagram account where you can find some really special ones. But charity fairs, flea markets, and your parent’s or grandparent’s personal collections could also bring you some treasures.
Gone back in time. Bye! See you later with another (not so) traditional recipe.
