22 years doesn’t really count as old, at least not to someone who grew up in a city where houses where built before her grandpa was born. But, I pulled out my Christmas ornaments to try and foster a little holiday spirit (and remind myself that I have to figure out where to put the tree), and I had to check on some of my favourite ornaments. This Christmas train may be the oldest I have. I’m not really sure, but I know it’s from 1980, so I was just 4 years old when it was given to me.
And, this lovely embroidered cat was from 1984. The colours are a bit faded and she’d getting a bit dirty, but I love her. She is quite possibly my favourite ornaments, which is impressive considering how much I love all the ornaments I have.
