I am saving the tree for another post. I mean all the different ornaments...lights...and garlands...can be a blog all on their own. I want to talk about everything else. I started collecting Christmas decorations long before I had a house to decorate. The very first thing I bought came from an estate sale. It is a small ceramic christmas tree...ya know the ones that have little peg lights and a bulb inside to make them glow. I might not have given this one another thought...it was missing all its lights...and like I said it was small...it was also royal blue. I have seen my fair share of these trees and I have never seen one in blue...never before and never since. So this little lone tree started my collection. That is really all it takes. One item...and a desire to find more so you can create a family. Now with the help of another one of my aunts I have about 15 trees...all different sizes...all different colors (O.K. mostly green)...even different shaped lights. Some have their original base some have a base made loving by my dad. They take over my hearth every season and in the evening when the timer clicks and the trees light up...there is a place in my heart that lights up too! I collect other types of trees also. I have a few stuffed fabric trees...some trees meant to display any special ornaments you might want to show off...I even have a Charlie Brown tree (complete with one ornament). I also have the trees I made for myself. I have a set made of pushpins...and then I have the ribbon trees that were the subject of a tutorial last year. That's all for now...see you tomorrow!
To the moon and back,
