Many of us have been busy decorating house and home. We have at last decorated our tree with a few of our favourite things. I'll share a few with you and hope you will share some of your favourites too!


and butterflies

Bows (yes Chelone, real ribbon is hard to find!)

A dove of peace

A primitive angel

Colourful balls for the 12 days of Christmas...only two here:

Put it all together with gifts and you get this:

But the real feeling of the season will only come when everyone arrives!

Merry Christmas Marie! I enjoyed a closeup of your beautiful ornaments. I got a kick out of the holstein cow. He reminds me of the border that I have in my computer room that is that type of folk artish.

What lovely trees! Mine is very plain this year but at least it is up and done. I enjoyed seeing the special ornaments and am thankful Marie began this thread.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Here's a few of my favorites, some of these aren't the best photos but my battery was running down and I had to snap them quickly, hope you can at least get an idea of what they look like...

From Brad's and my first Christmas together

An OLD bell passed on from my grandma's tree

My mom made me this one

Jen made this one in preschool when she was 3

Brad's favorite, a tiny drum set I got him years ago when he used to drum

Bella favorite this year, Grover

Delightful seeing the meaningful ornaments!

A few more from our house:
Music stand

A Christmas donkey. (There's a sheep, a polar bear, and more...)

Clay doves all around

This bicycle appeared many times. Several times when a bike was a Christmas gift, later when a boyfriend was dismissed but with mixed feelings: "A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle".
