It's begining

We always get our trees and decorate the day after thanksgiving.
I love getting all of the goodies down from the attic. Little touches here and there.
Most of my ornaments are from my favorite thrift stores.
I have a thing for tinsel trees.
Some of my favorite were made by my very talented children. These were made by my 17,15,13 and 11 years olds when they were respectively in Miss Donna's 4 year old class.
All photos by me.

I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend. We have two friends staying with us. One I haven't seen for 16 years. It should be fun.

Lovely!
The trees made by your kids are so darling. It's such a good idea to have those decorations over the years. For sure they are proud of their work. And for you, as their mother, they are so precious memories!
Here, in Romania, we decorate our homes for Christmas in the begging of Dec.; and the big Christmas tree we decorate only on evening of 24th, in the Christmas Eve.

Love all your decor. My favorites are my children's ornaments as well. My husband did a time lapse of our tree decoration this year for a fun twist. I also love displaying all our Christmas cards on the mirror in our entry.

You have such a beautiful home! We've been putting more and more decorations out, especially now that we purchased our tree yesterday. I love pulling out the ornaments the kids have made. It makes it so special!

My grandmother had a big silver tinsel tree she decorated with bright blue balls. She died when I was in elementary school but that tree is burned in my memory. Very unusual...I should go try to find pics....
