Here's the Whoville tree! It was a beautiful, slim, vintage looking tree when we first put it up and then it just sort of flopped, not that flopping is bad, but it was very uneven flopping. I like to complain about how wonky it is and how it's already losing all its needles but Tim becomes very emotionally attached to the tree. It's the Charlie Brown in him. He says this tree was just special and had extra needles to begin with. ok!
And since you've stopped by for a visit, I'll subject you to the same treatment as all visitors to the house... you have to sit through me pointing out every ornament on the tree. And I'm not even going to put them behind the cut, that's how pushy I am!
An Oscar favorite (you can tell because it's been rehung over a light!)
tinsel wreath making its debut this year
also debuting, a reproduction vintage diorama ornament. I always loved these as a kid. Now I have my own!
our new Rudolf
skiing in the buffet
Oscar's 2006 ornament
where the tiny people in the tree live
someone else's xmas memories appropriated (ornament from this summer's garage sales)

and what are the holidays without a trip to hazel? our newest addition, these beautiful glittered bells!
ornament from Grandma Ev's collection
German angels from Grandma Mary
and finally, favorite ornament ever
And just in case you thought I was done with you, some more ornaments from last year.
I think I promised new kitchen tree pics but it's virtually unchanged so here it is from last year. Still very pleased with the dishtowel garland and these retro ad ornaments held up well. The candy ornaments from MS Kids did not make it unfortunately. But it's for the best since Oscar was trying to eat the broken pieces right out of the box.
Thanks for stopping by!
