Box Of Delights.......

More from the box of delights......... how fab are these garlands?.. did you hang them from the corners of the room to the light fitting in the middle, twisting the crepe paper ones as you went? The colours on the concertina ones have faded but the crepe paper ones are as bright as ever.

There is a strung glass bead garland there too, I think that may be even older than the paper ones...... there's still more to come......

These bring back so many memories!
We had all these things when I was little.

They are lovely!
The crepe ones look like paper flowers (tho' not Grungepaper roses!!) you could stick a big, fancy button in the centre!!

Now I am wondering if my Mum sold off our old decorations.......these are SO familiar.....and yes, we had twisted crepe paper decorations hanging from the middle of the room out the corners. I wonder how my Dad coped with it.....he is a tall bloke!! LOL

Yes! and balloons pinned up with drawing pins and what about those foil type things which you twisted and pinned to the ceiling - they twirled around in the draft ....... what else have you got to show us?
