an old christmas bell...
This old Christmas bell once belonged to Mr Goldfish's grandmother.
I don't usually put it up, but I think it's time to put a hook in the ceiling... so that I can hang it up and everyone can enjoy it. It actually plays a tune. You pull on the... um... glitter ball... I'm sure this part of the bell has a name, but I can't for the life of me think what to call it! Anyway, you pull on the glitter ball, and away the music plays. There's the odd 'ting' missing from the melody, but that just adds to the character, in my opinion!
Before I hang the bell, I would like to add an embellishment. It just needs 'something'. So I'll spend some time today thinking about that, and see what I can come up with.
Meanwhile... did you see the cherries on our tree??? Mmmmm... delicious!
