Finally! The (first) tree is up...and what a job that was.

The first ornament my son ever gave me...about 15 years ago.

A memento from a trip to Ireland..

My very precious Waterford sphere.

A Renoir interpretation..

Various santas..

Diminutive of many

Crystal ball flight

Rising Sun..

Dragonflies to hover and butterflies to flit about..

And what would a Christmas tree be without shoes?

This made me want a Christmas tree once again. It's been so many years. I have the ornaments from my childhood in a box in the basement. It's likely one or both of our children will marry someone who is not Jewish, so I can pass them on!

You have some beautiful ornaments with wonderful memories attached!

Hi Gewel!
What a great show of your Xmas tree and your typical and very creative decorations!! Do You really hang real (high-heels)shoes in the Xmas-tree? YES? And if so, why? I just wonder and I like the idea anyhow! I like your tree and everything you show me..:)

Have a laugh, Come and look at my blog and see my serie's of alternative christmas decoration. Have a great weekend!

JoAnn greetings,

How fun to see your tree and ornaments. I've never seen high heels as tree decorations. Thanks for the photo display.
Hugs and blessings,
