Throwback Christmas Tree

What’s in my tree this year? Aside from the usual decorative elements, I threw in some special stuff in my tree. My brain was not wired to be creative but being sentimental is definitely something I’m good at.  111713_1529_ThrowbackCh1.jpg

A book that I consider the most valuable in my book collection.
The very last present I received from my mother, personally signed by the author. Nope, I did not become a teacher.

A card given to me by my sister to help with the grieving process a few weeks after our mother passed away. I had a separate blog entirely all about it.

Santa Candy jar (ofcourse it had contents when I received it) given to me by a boss who I thought never knew I existed. Kept the jar because it was really cute and I was planning to make some (DIY).
