We got our Christmas tree set up last night. I love sorting through the ornaments and reminiscing as we hang each ornament. Our tree is a combination of purchased, handmade and handed down ornaments. It's full of memories for each of us. We actually have more ornaments than we have tree space.
This year I have a small "handmade" tree in the front foyer. The tree isn't handmade but it's filled with handmade ornaments from the Year of Enchantment swap, this year's bird ornament swap and ornaments I've made with my own hands. Keeping with the handmade theme, Melinda made the table runner under the tree for me as part of the Christmas in July swap. It's a perfect base for my handmade tree. I love that this tree is full of ornaments that were lovingly made! It makes me smile every time I walk by it.
