Day 18 – Bradley’s Basement’s Advent Calendar 2018

Hello everyone! 🙂

Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley!

It’s Day 18 of ‘Bradley’s Basement’s Advent Calendar 2018’.

Take a look at what’s on the Bradley household mantelpiece back in December 2008.

I put Christmas decorations about the house around December time and the mantelpiece is no exception as well as the Christmas tree. Let me share with you what’s on the mantelpiece in this photo for December 2008. First there are two portrait pictures of Santa Claus and a Snowman on it.

There’s also a nativity scene in front of the clock beside the Snowman portrait picture which has been a part of our Christmas family decorations for as long as I can remember. There’s also a Christmas crystal light ornament in front of the Santa portrait picture that works well with batteries. 😀

There’s also a Christmassy styled candle holder beside the nativity scene in front of the clock and there’s a handmade Christmas card by me which is partly out of shot on the left that I made when I was a kid. The thing between the Snowman and Santa pictures is something for my Mum and Dad.

I believe it’s a wedding anniversary gift from someone. The picture frame on the right of the Santa picture features a portrait of my sister Bethan when she was still alive. It’s at Christmas times when my parents and I remember Bethan most fondly. I’ve vague but fond memories of her when I was a kid.

It’s been nice to revisit these Christmas photos from December 2008 and see what decorations I put about the house especially on the mantelpiece. I guess it won’t be the same with what we put on the mantelpiece this year. But I’m sure I will be putting the Santa and Snowman profile pics on there.

Thanks for reading!

Bye for now!
