Pink Saturday With A Christmas Twist #2

Here we are again ~ Pink Saturday, but this time with a Christmas twist! Beverly at How Sweet The Sound, the fantastic weekly host of what is obviously now an enormous task, asked us to include a favourite Christmas decoration this week.

This beautiful lady is our family’s Christmas Fairy, and I’ve been lucky enough to inherit the care of her from mum. She sits at the top of the tree, with a fairy light positioned just so, near the hem of her tutu. Our trees were never considered ‘done’ until she was in situ. I can’t remember a Christmas without her, so by my reckoning she must be around 35 years old. Mum bought her at an RAF Wives’ Club Christmas Fair in the early 1970s, and I believe she came with a ‘sister’ dressed like Santa (my Auntie may have her, but I’m not sure). Last year, when we decamped to Scotland for Christmas, she came with us and graced the top of my sister’s tree. Well, we could hardly leave her behind, could we?

This week’s GiveAway can be seen here; if you would like a chance to win it, please leave a comment to show that you dropped by; become a follower of this ordinary, run-of-the-mill blog if you’d like a 2nd chance of winning. My Mum (this week’s random number selector thingy) will choose the winner at 12 Noon (GMT) on Tuesday, 15 December.
I’m also running a Christmas Challenge with a prize here ~ it would be great if you stopped by, it runs until the end of the month, so plenty of time left to join in.
In the mean time, Happy Festive Pink Saturday to you!

  1. Ruth, I love your little fairy! I think it's wonderful that your mother has passed the tradition on to you and your family. I love vintage ornaments, and that one is so sweet.

    I hope you get a chance to visit me today because I have devoted part of my post to you, the Queen, and my new concertina! Hope you like it…

    XO,

    Sheila 🙂

  3. I love your fairy! Fairies are always very special to me. I also blogged this week about something special that has to be close to the top of the tree!

    Happy Pink Saturday.
