Our little Christmas house & Christmas tree treasures

Welcome to our home on this cold icy day. Come inside and warm up!
Here is our little tree and the answers to the Christmas tree treasures
1. Why I use my tree topper and why it is special: She is an adorable angel made for us by a very dear friend.
2. Do you use a tree skirt and is it unusual? Yes, it is a cross stitch kit given to me by a friend. I cross stitched it and it is unusual in that it has different water birds on it.
3. What is your oldest ornament? It is a little stain glass angel. She is hanging just above the nativity. We have had her for nearly 27 years!
4.What goes on the tree first? Depends on my mood!
Visit here to see and read about more Christmas Treasures.
Now here are the rest of my decorations. These were my Grams and I got them after she passed away in 2003.
Here come all the snowmen! LOL!





So there it is! Thanks so much for visiting and do be careful in this weather as you head on home!

My Dear Michelle,
I had a wonderful visit as you shared with me some of your Christmas Tree Treasures.

Your angel topper is beautiful and I know that it has special meaning coming from a dear friend. :)

What a unique tree skirt...with very skillfully stiched water birds.

I know that you treasure and protect your stain glass...and to have her for 27 years.

Your display of your Grams' collection is very beautiful. I know that each piece holds a special place in your heart.

Snowmen hold a special place in my heart. I have always loved them, and have them all through my home. I will share some of them later this week.

I enjoyed my visit with you Michelle...may your days be filled with many blessings, lots of love, laughter,family and friends!

Hello dear Michelle,
I so enjoyed seeing your beautiful decorations. That tree skirt is just a work of art! Snowmen are always featured in my decorations as well.
Wish I could be there to see them in person as your home seems so festive and welcoming.
Enjoy this blessed time of year...
