An Old-Fashioned Christmas Tree

What a delight to see all that shiny, silver tinsel and garlands adorn the annual tree for my mother and her sisters and brothers, some then young adults.  See  all of the presents are wrapped and ready under the tree.  Can almost see the train set and miniature houses. My grandmother loved the ice skating figures made of metal.   Several years later, with a different smaller tree, we would play with the ice skating people that were placed on a  mirror to resemble ice.  Just love that floral wallpaper and sheer white curtained window.

Wishing you Happy Christmas Memories.

In the Blog, “The American Homemaker”, there will be a “Holiday Show and Share each Tuesday from November 4 – December 23rd. 

It can be a holiday decoration, a favorite holiday tradition ,a  holiday picture of your family, a favorite holiday recipe or a great party idea.
The above photo is my entry for this week, a favorite holiday decoration.
I love the velvet ribbon hanger, the sapphire blue color of the beads and gold sequins and the finishing touch, the white pearl at the bottom of the ornament.  This ornament came from a kit, sold at Rickel’s home improvement store a long time ago. My family made several of these as gifts for Christmas one year.
