I don't usually do a tree but to cheer myself up I got out Mom's fake table top tree. The plastic base was broken so I stuck the tree in an old milk can. This is a new decoration I bought at the crafts fair last week. Made of alpaca wool. There are tons of alpaca farms up here.
Here is an angel in a blown out egg shell. Mom made this and most of the decorations I used. All that time spent creating such pretty things. How lucky I am to have these. Thanks, Mom.
This is a Waldorf fair elf.
The tree in its can.
Pearl angel by Mom.
Gorham silver star from a collection of 5 or so Mom bought. I plug in the lights each night. And recall that the first year I came up here I set up the tree for Mom and when I was done I realized I had NOT strung on the lights. Do you have any favorite decorations you use each year. Do they remind you of times past?
