I finally finished decorating our gargantuan Christmas tree. Here is the result!
And, a close up....
I never have a theme to my Christmas tree and don't like it when everything matches on our family tree. Most of my ornaments (except for some "filler" balls) have meaning. Some were gifts, others were collected during our travels, passed down from our families, handmade, or from our childhood.
This cute little angel ornament was handmade out of a clothespin. Isn't she sweet.
This star is made out of sea shells - how appropriate for our region of the country.
Here are a few lighthouse ornaments. We've actually got a lot of these and have picked them up in sea side shops to our many visits to the Cape.
Here's a little cloisonne hummingbird ornament. I have several of these too and they were gifts from my Mother. I love them!
Of course, our tree wouldn't be complete without Andy's professional sports team ornaments. He loves his Red Sox and Patriots ornaments and always proudly displays them (I try to hide them but he always moves them to the front... *sigh*).
Here are the first two ornaments I ever bought for my own tree. I won't say how old these are. ;)
Well that's it. Soon I'll be posting pictures of the other decorations around our house.... that is as soon as the boxes get put away. Santa still hasn't sent his elves to do that. Darn!
