Christmas Decor to Share

Merry Christmas From our Home to Yours!

Yes, that is our cat in the tree, so this one is for Her!  Just
one strand of lights and a topper.  I just had to have one fresh tree
to put presents under for family.

Leopard poinsettia for Sheba (kitty)
My special tinsel tree, all the vintage ornaments I found on my last antique shopping trip with my 
Brother Mike, RIP. He was so tickled I found them in the shop where he had a space!

Remember these trees?  I have had this since 1970!

By now you know I love Trees!

Yes, inspired from Pinterest, I did it!  Spray painted the
frame, had the screen, and did purchase the ornaments.
The trunk was made from an ornament I had, little package in gold,
perfect, and I was lucky to find the star ornament for the topper!
This took patience, but so happy I made this project.
This is the inside of our entry door.  This Wreath was simple to make, I purchased these leopard poinsettias to put on a tree, but with the cat climbing in and out of our live tree, the idea came to me to make a wreath!  I just used a twig wreath and the the poinsettia's had a clip on their back, it was fast and easy.

I love Santa's too!  The tree is done in all my Santa ornaments from years past.
Would you believe my sweet Brother Rick, found these for me, he knew I had been 
looking for for them.  I have 5 brothers and only two are not into collecting various items,
The fever is in the family.  Love ya, Rick!

I made my own vintage feather tree 3 years ago, used small cookie cutters 
and put cinnamon pine cones in my husbands vintage bowl.  Love this for the kitchen!

I do have more to share but need to go, it is Christmas Morning and family will be arriving, I have been away for a while, I lost my Brother Mike to Multiple Myeloma and Amyloidosis November 25th, it is only 1 month today, I miss him so much and it has been hard, but with family coming and needing to be there for others, has kept me going.  Give lots of hugs today and say "I love You" to close ones!

I hope everyone has family surrounding them today,

Merry Christmas

I'm so sorry that you lost your brother. It's wonderful that you are keeping your Christmas spirit going at such a difficult time.

I made one of those ceramic trees when I was in my twenties! :) I don't have it anymore but I do remember them! :)
