I'd like to share a special Christmas decoration that I have. I look forward to bringing them out each and every year. It's the three little buildings in this picture.
Notice what the top looks like? Rough and uneven. That's because each building is actually a partial brick that has been painted to look like a building from Santa's village.
My mom used to live in a [very] small rural farming town in Oklahoma. I used to love going and visit her and her small, quaint town. I just love the look and feel of a small rural town. Big trees, old homes, walking everywhere, and the old brick buildings.
My little Christmas buildings were made from bricks taken from an abandoned building from my mom's hometown. My mom bought them from a lady who collected the bricks that had fallen away from the building and then painted and decorated them. I love them. Thanks mom. I think of you, Lee, and Carmen every time I look at them.
Kelli hosts Show & Tell Friday and anyone is welcome to join in.
