There were the Christmas' of just the two of us in apartments with our 'Red Bird Trees'...those were our first ornaments. They have survived for since 1965. Next came the Kid Trees with hand painted wooden ornaments of trains, planes, and toys.
Some of my favorites were the ones our son made at school. Aren't 'Teachers' amazing to instill the values of Christmas and family in their students? Those ornaments and paper treasures have been passed on to decorate and save. Our Grandkids have added their own creations to that collection. I hope it brings them JOY to look back in the years to come.
For the past ten years or so, the Tree is a collection crochet, glass, baubles and shinny decorations. It is more of a reflection of me...not that I'm all that shinny or have wings. No, I have to say that this years 'Wings Theme' is a reflection of my Mother. She was an Angel here on earth and now in heaven. Her memory fills me with Joy.
Merry Christmas from My Tree to Yours!
