It has been a slow process for me this year in decorating for Christmas. I am chairing a very large women's event at our church next week which will bring in nearly 600 women. My husband leans more towards Scrooge when it comes to the holidays so I thought I might let some of it go this year.
Imagine my surprise this week when he asked me if I was going to "put up" Christmas this year? After 30 plus years of being together, maybe he does enjoy them after all! So I started in the dining room with my white tree decorated with red and black. There are tiny hats, vintage gloves, little dolls and much more.
This year I added the silver icicles, just like we always had on our tree when I was growing up. Without animals in the house now, or little children, I know it will stay on the tree!
In front of one of the windows I have a little tree decorated with my grandmother's novelty jewelry and ornaments I made by hand. The trimming is a tiny garland made out of sheet music and a felted star.
There is always my favorite doll with my favorite book from my childhood, "The Doll's Christmas". Next week I will take you on a tour of the other trees. Blessings today!
