So see that very primitive styrofoam head ornament on my tree (nestled among the santa and nutcrackers)? It's the oldest piece of my art I have. We named him beady man and I made him back in nursery school (now called pre-school) back in the day. We always have a laugh about him and make a joke that beady man has made it on the tree again-he's been hanging on one for over 50 years. I must say he might be ugly but he's very special to me.
Every year I pick up ornaments for the hubby and my daughter that have some meaning for them. They aren't quite as beautiful as beady man though.
Those of you who watch Doctor Who may noticed this dalek is going to exterminate Santa. It wasn't hung this way on purpose, but I noticed it and it gave me a laugh.
Time to call in the doctor. :)
And this gorgeous quiltlet was a gift from an artistic friend. You know who you are, and it has the honor of hanging on my tree! Smile.
The daughter is a huge Snoopy fan, and the kitty up to the left was a gift from my MIL when I had my orange cat. She buys expensive ornaments and I buy bargain ones.
And my husband is definitely an eeyore from Winnie the Pooh.
And this Victorian cone is a more recent art project of mine.
And some old glass ornaments that hung on my parent's tree. When my mom stopped putting up a tree she shared her things.
I think Christmas trees are a great way to tell a family story. Don't you?
Hope you are have, or are having, a wonderful day.
