Tannenbaum

The showcase of our holiday decorating is our Christmas tree.   Each year we add a few more ornaments to our collection.  We always wonder how we could possibly find room on the tree for more treasures but it is tradition to add something new each year.

Here is a daytime photo of the tree since the ornaments show up better in this lighting.



This is one of our oldest ornaments.  As you can see, blue decorations have always been a favorite.



Many of our ornaments are handmade -- some I made, some are gifts from friends.





We also hunt for special ornaments throughout the year.  Whenever we travel, we typically bring home an ornament that represents that vacation spot.



We love brass ornaments and especially look for dated white ball ornaments with images of Norman Rockwell, Beatrice Potter, Hummel or some other artist's images.



Reproductions of Christmas stamps are among my personal favorites.








Once evening arrives, the miniature lights create a magical effect.



Merry Christmas!  I appreciate your friendship and wish each of you a blessed Holiday Season.
