I always put my tree up on Thanksgiving night. I dont have a very large tree, or a very fancy one either. My tree has lots of ornaments that I have collected over my life. Kind of like my charm bracelet. I always like to buy hand made ornaments whenever I can. I also love making ornaments! I used to buy a new ornament for each of my daughters when they were growing up, then when they left home I gave them their collection. Word to the wise out there, if you do this make sure you by yourself one too. I failed to do this and had a bare tree for awhile. LOL But I love that tradition and I know alot of people do this.
Many of you know my office manager Lucy,,, she even helped decorate the tree. My cats are so funny, they love laying under the tree. They are all piled up sleeping their afternoons away.
This top photo was some ornaments I made for my friend Joyce and she took these on her tree! They are just awesome. The pink angel was mine when I was a little girl from the 60's. Its still my absolute favorite. I bought the teddy bear santa and the moose in a stocking at a Harvest Festival back in the 80's.
I have been making lots of cupcake and ice cream cone ornaments and they are in all colors. I have some on my website and can also take special requests for colors. I hope you have a great week and are having fun decoration and getting ready for the holidays!
