Oh Christmas Tree....

Tip Junkie is one of my fav blogs to visit. I get so many wonderful ideas from her and the holiday's are no exception. I am submitting my humble tree in her Tree Decorating contest.

Go here to check out all of the other WONDERFUL BEAUTIFUL tree's.
Here is mine:

All of the ornamnets on here have meaning. Some are from my childhood. Some are made by my Grandmother and Mother. Some are bought for my children and when they leave home they get to take them with to start their own tree's. Some are the ones we've bought for our family and then there are the ones my children have made for me. All of them came from someone special to us. My mother even made the rope garland (13 years ago) you see hanging on the tree (we tired something different this year and strung it up and down - Chef likes it this way).

I've seen some extremely beautiful tree's out there in bloggy land lately and many put mine to shame but I love mine just the same. One day when we have more room I'll have another tree to play with but for now this one filled with our memories is and always will be front and center in our home.
