Hello everyone! Finally got my tree up, and as you can see, it is heavily inspired by nature. Of course it is! I found myself gleefully snapping away, wanting to show you every little ornament on the tree; but I managed to check myself and just go with these. I am so proud to have some of my own handmade ornaments on the tree this year (all the mushroom ornaments!). I think they look right at home with the little wired on birds, birds nests tucked into the branches, grapevine stars, and folk art churches. Oh, I love my tree! am I allowed to say that?
I have a theory about Christmas trees. I think they reflect a person's true personal style. Or they certainly can anyway. I have ornaments for 3 or 4 different themed trees - a candy themed tree for the boys (that was last year) a winter wonderland theme all in white, blues and silver for my husband, a traditional tree with Santa and snowmen and candy canes, etc. But this one is my favorite! This is my tree. I hope to create a few more handmade ornaments for it if I have time, but so far every spare moment has been spent shopping, baking, or decorating!
I wonder if you agree with my little theory. Take a look at your tree. What does it say about you? I'd love to see yours! Send me some pix, won't you?
Happy Christmas-ing everyone!
