O' Christmas Tree

O' Christmas Tree.....O' Christmas Tree.....You Bring Me So Much Pleasure!

Although we are never home for Christmas, I still decorate the house and the tree every year.  I figure we have a few weeks prior to Christmas to enjoy it before we leave to visit our family.  

Last week I showed you some of the other Christmas decor around the house this year.  Here is our super, duper skinny tree (the only size that will fit in our pint sized home)...

Most of our ornaments are either handmade or they have a special meaning to us.

Last year I told you all about the special sequin ornaments that my Grandmother used to make for my mother every year.

I was SOOOO excited when I stumbled upon several bags of antique handmade sequined ornaments at my favorite Antique Mall last month.

They were bagged 4 to 5 ornaments to a bag for $5...I felt like I had won the lottery!

They are just as beautiful as the ones my Grandmother used to make.  I had a hard time believing that someone's family actually gave these beauties up.

To be able to add to my collection, and so inexpensively, was a wonderful surprise this year.

I hope you are all having a special holiday season!


  1. Pretty tree Erin! I love how you did the ribbons hanging down!!!

  2. I love your skinny tree! I wish i would have known about the sequin ornaments because i could have added to your collection :)

    Your friend, Ms. Scrooge lol

  3. Erin, beautiful tree! And I love those ornaments! I remember those on my Grandma's tree and haven't seen them in years. I think someone else in the family must have inherited them....hum....now I'm going to track them down! LOL!

    Have a wonderful Christmas and enjoy the break from school! :) Gina
