Christmas Tree

Merry Christmas!

Like most everyone, I love my Christmas tree!  It's not fancy, nor is it perfectly decorated with a particular theme.  Its decorations are random and very simple.  I love my tree because on it hangs so many ornaments that my boys made for me while they were growing up.  And every year, it's a joy to take each ornament out of the Christmas ornament box and find a special place for it on my tree.

Decorating the tree is a heartwarming experience for me and I look forward to it every year.  This year was even more special because my sister and I decorated my tree together.  I celebrated another Christmas blessing of this past year...having my baby sister close by and part of my life again.  I truly believe that a sister is one of life's greatest blessings. 


I am so thankful for the many, many blessings in my life and I wish each of you a 
Blessed and Merry Christmas.


  1. Christmas... it is all about family and memories and hopes for the future. You have all of that on your tree. Such special meaning and a tree full of love. Merry Christmas to you and your family. I, the Christmas chef, am off to start the huge meal.

  2. Merry Christmas to you and to your family.

  3. Hi Donna...Thank you for your Christmas wishes! I hope yours was wonderful as well and that your dinner turned out great! PS...what did you fix? :)

  4. Christmas blessings to you too, Ellada! Thanks for stopping by :)

  5. Merry Christmas Diane! I feel the same about our tree - no theme just lots of homemade ornaments and others collected through the years...your paper plate bird especially made me smile! Joy to you and yours!

  6. Hi Cat! One of my favorite ornaments is the paper plate bird. Makes me smile every year when I hang it :) Hope your Christmas was wonderful!

  7. Hello Diane,

    Lovely Christmas tree, and beautiful stuff. How did you do that?

    Just like to share with you a life quote...
