Vintage Christmas – Tinsel Time!

tinsel tree
Christmas trees at our house always had tinsel. I don’t think anyone uses tinsel any more, do they?
Every year we’d carefully drape the tree with strands and strands of silver tinsel when the tree went up. When the tree came down, the tinsel was removed – not thrown away with the tree, mind you, but pulled off, laid carefully in tissue paper and packed away for the next Christmas. Kind of an amazing thing when you think about it . . .

Just FYI – that’s the same tinsel in the last picture that you see in the first picture, lol!!!
