Remember the ugly menorah Christmas Tree? It does look better decorated. See below.
Just decorated and wating for presents.
In case you forgot how hideous it was
As you can see I got some of my wrapping done, but still have a long ways to go.
I collect christmas tree ornaments. Each one of mine are unique and different. No boxes of the same factory ornaments here. If I find an ornament I love, I buy one of them and cherish it. Alot of them are gifts as people know I collect unique ones, and probably half of them are hand made be me of course. Below are some of my faves.
Es bonita,no? To the left of the pretty ornament you can see another one with Evan's pic on it and above it is a very pricey owl, made of cloissone.
Close up of a handmade Evan ornament - that picture was from his first Christmas. Cutest baby ever! He won't dress like that any more for his mama. *sigh*
Guess why I like this one.
Ornament that looks like Lightning36
Pretty because it sparkles alot in real life.
What's this? Another sox ornament? Yep.
Handpainted by moi. See the pickle ornament to it's left? Every year we play hide the pickle. *smirk* for real. It's a tradition where the ornament is hung in a hiding spot on the tree and whoever spots it first gets a gift. Sugar Bear always finds it. :)
Close up of the owl.
Mmmm Dunkin Donuts coffee!
Given to me by the girls who I go away with every year. Anyone else get alot of poker gifts?
The greenish grey orb is solid jade, very heavy and very old. It is a bead from a huge old rosary beard. It's very pretty close up. Beneath that is a gold lampshade and of course a saxaphone.
