our Christmas decorating has been up for a couple weeks now. I've had this terrible flu-bug and it's kept me from sharing the corners of our Christmas here. We don't go all-out with decorating, we mainly have our tree and little things here and there.
This year we got a real Christmas tree.... we usually set up our flocked-with-snow-artificial-tree, but we just wanted something different this year. I've been collecting Department 56's Krinkles collection for years now and have enough Krinkle ornaments to cover our entire flocked tree. Though I love them.... we kept them tucked away in their boxes.
This year we dug out all of our "vintage" Christmas ornaments. We just wanted a change and it's a nice change too.
It's a smaller tree, only about 5 feet and sitting upon a pedestal. Keeping the fur-babies from eating it!
This little stuffed star is our new ornament this year. Right above his head is one of my most-treasured... a mercury glass Santa. He's very, very, old and so sweet!
