    I love those bells, too; and I’ve noticed this year they’ve become fashionable again. But unfortunately, none of mine from childhood survived as I likely opened and closed them hundreds of times. That is the magic bit, isn’t it: watching them unfurl.

    I loved those honeycomb bells made of paper and also remember the pleasure of folding and unfolding them. You have done very well indeed to keep yours safe and in good condition throughout all those moves. The last picture looks a bit like a tooth in a dentist’s Xray but I know you have lovely photos from the past of your Christmas decorations.
