I stuck with tradition on my tree. I just can't put up a tree without using all those precious ornaments we've collected over the years. Maybe one year I'll start earlier and I can put up a separate themed tree somewhere.
Here are some of those special ornaments I was talking about. The two in the middle were made by my dad. He took up cross stitch as a hobby in his latter years.
This next little vignette was put together with items I picked up for practically nothing at estate sales. The only thing I purchased at the store is that mesh ribbon and berries around the deer's neck. I got the greenery out of Lowe's dumpster by the Christmas trees. I used the top of my china cabinet as my "mantel", since I don't have a fireplace.
I couldn't resist setting up a little book Christmas tree, since reading is one of my favorite things to do. I set it up on a little stool I picked up for $3.
I decided to display Christmas cards across an old window I have hanging in my kitchen pass-through.
I showed my dining table in a previous post. But I tweaked it a little, so I'm showing it again.
|I splurged on these, but they were 40% off.|
|I think I paid $1 for these battery candles. Love them.|
OK. I'm gonna stop here. I hope you made it to the end of this long post!. Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you all have a Very Merry and Blessed Christmas!
