God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

My Tree

I mentioned in yesterday's post that I would be sharing photos of my tree with you today.  I must admit that I have been seeing many bloggers posting some very gorgeous pictures of their trees & decorations so I feel a bit like a little girl in awe of her big sisters but I will share my photos anyway   : )   This is our main tree ... just a primly decorated skinny alpine tree which I purchased last year because our livingroom just isn't large enough for a bigger tree (one of many things I didn't pick up on when we bought this place).  I tried to get photos of as many ornaments as I could.  Most of the ornaments are purchased from amazing crafters with the exception of the tree topper & a Santa which were exchange ornaments & too big to fit on my small trees designated for those.  I did also make quite a few of the ornaments & that dried sweet potato garland which has a story all its own.  Maybe I should share that with you sometime   : )  













I hope you enjoyed your little visit   : )

Your tree looks great Shirlee!
I have my sad little strand of sweet potato garland! I just followed the instructions given via APP magazine. Guess what I am getting for Christmas from my work this year? A dehydrator! LOL! Just so I can do this stuff! Yours looks great anyhow~ and STOP with the berating yourself over the house! Don't make me come down there! LOL!
Have a good night.
Hugs,
Renee

I love your skinny tree! And the ornaments. :)

We have issues with where to put the tree too. The house layout and room sizes are a challenge when it comes to where to put anything. This year we opted for the dining area for our tree. So far it's working out just fine, but I have to trim back some branches. It's a fresh cut tree so I will have to apply some "band-aids" when I cut the branches so sap doesn't get all over the place. ;)

Christmas blessings!
Jessica
