The tree looks beautiful and now that it is complete it is such an uplifting sight! Our tree is not anything fancy, it is a hodgepodge of ornaments that we have collected and those passed down from parents and grandparents. Almost every ornament has a story or a memory, heck some of them are older than I am. I took some pictures of a few of my favorites.
A few years ago I came across this series of birds at Hallmark. I really love them and purchase myself one every year. Usually around Halloween to make sure I get one and fulfill my ornament obsession.
I think they are just lovely!
So I lovingly place this on our tree every year, and ignore the snickers from my family.
Now tell me, who doesn't love a flying angel pig with a big green bow and starry red skives. I do!!!!
Our tree topper is an angel and she is beautiful. I think an angel tree topper is lovely, and just as symbolic as a star. I bought her when a couple of my dear friends from church and I went the The Broadmoor for lunch and girl time. We had a delightful day and I found her in the gift shop on clearance. Nothing beats a beautiful Christmas decoration on clearance!!
There are so many more but I am beginning to bore myself with nostalgia. Over the next couple of weeks I will try to control my urges to bombard you with my love for all things gaudy around Christmas. I say, if you are going to do it, do it BIG!!!
Oh, I am trying to control myself and not buy this beautiful nativity scene. Hopefully they will go on sale and I can snag one before they are all gone. Isn't it stunning?
