My sewing machine is in the shop so I’ve been cleaning up my sewing room a bit. One of the things I found was a big garbage bag of decades old silver garland. My Grandad passed away a few years ago and so my grandmother sold their house. When we cleaned it out we found length after length of silver garland.
My aunt told me that he was very particular about the Christmas tree and when he got older he wouldn’t let anyone else decorate it. So last Christmas all of the grand kid’s took some of the garland. I’m sure I ended up with the lion’s share, because I had almost a full trash bag!
