Talking about trees and the things that decorate them........

Although I do like to get the Christmas tree up right after Thanksgiving, this year we are waiting for the painter to finish
painting the living room before we put up the tree. Since I am
allergic to pine trees, we decorate a beautiful tree I found at
jo Ann Fabrics one year. It’s a tree with fold-out branches that we can leave the lights on. I have to have a lot of lights,
(about 1200) and they have to be white lights. My ideal tree would have ornaments in shades of white and gold, yet I can’t help but put up my favorite nostalgic ornaments too. These ornaments pictured here represent just a few. The ugliest ornament award goes to the one that I made probably in pre-school. I think i’ts a pom-pom santa? The santa below that one was made about five years ago as an adult. I love
making felt ornments with sequins on them. The snowflake orn ament is my most recent ornament purchase, bought last week in an etsy
store. my next ornament that I make or purchase, I want to copy
the idea from my friend nikki workman who put shells in a clear
globe with some sand, and the ornament is a reminder of Jesus’
walks on the shores of galilee.

Your pages are amazing, I just love your work. And, I'm glad I'm not the only person who still has ornaments from their own pre-school days hanging on their tree!
