Here's the next Friday photo fun from Katie @I live, I love, I craft, I am me... and this week's word is...
Tree - a snap shot of your tree, this year's, last year's, the black and white one of you as a tiny tot helping to decorate, the one on the village square, that shiny white one in the shop, a native tree bedecked with lights and bird feeders - any festive tree :)
Oh boy, do I have some trees for you, are you ready?!
DH's dear Nana gave me this lovely "old" tree that she made way back in 1971! I was so thrilled when she asked me if I wanted it. A lovely memory of her, we're still missing her five years later.
I know it's hard to see, but this tree is filled with Swarovski crystal ornaments.
This tree sits in the basement and has our family names ornaments and White House ornaments on it.
We were lucky to get some snow the other day, so it made the outside trees look even prettier.
This is an original tree made out of whisks in a kitchen shop.
Beautifully lit trees last year on my getaway with my chosen sister, Cori. Sadly we were unable to go this year, just not worth it.
Another place we won't be going to see is the Christmas tree at the White House and all the little State trees. But here's one from a previous visit.
I thought I would throw in this oldie with me and my older brother, taken at a party at our Dad's work. And I still love Fisher Price!
Now I didn't make this one, but my precious Momma did before her rheumatoid arthritis started.
This is the surprise tree that Santa leaves out every Christmas Eve with pjs and little ornaments for the boys, although now it's just Nathan.
I stitched this one years ago and decided to keep it instead of giving it away like I usually do.
These are my parents trees, although you can barely see the green! Their little pup Addie is in there too, can you see her?
Here are the boys decorating the tree this year with their ornaments.
The almost finished tree because that night it fell over! We lost a couple ornaments and I was able to save the others. So a little tightening later, I got to redecorate it.
This is the first time I put this tree up in my craft room, filled with cross stitched ornaments from friends and exchanges.
Step away from Christmas, here's the last one for fun - a wine tree that was next door to us at the beach one year!
Be sure to check out the other trees, we'll have a forest at this rate!
