the trimmings.

I love Christmas time. The sparkle and lights just make me warm all over. These are a few of my favorite things.. shiny red glass ornaments...

Glittery snowmen...

Thankful babes...

Pouting angels...

Peeking santas with polka dot caps...

Tiny snowmen caught under cups...


Antique santas from Christmas past..

Little boys singing carols...


Fancy ornaments too fragile for the tree...

and little girls singing carols.


Happy Holidays!

Beautiful, beautiful photographs of your tree treasures! It's so much fun to see the variety in ornaments from one family to the next.

What a clever idea the little snowman captured in his plastic cup. Makes me wish that I were still teaching a craft class. :D

I too love vintage Santas and red balls. They both bedeck my tree. The snowman caught under a cup is very cute.
