Side angle showing a star...
Here's the view from the kitchen into the living room.
One year when the kids were young they counted the ornaments. I can't remember the total but we have hundreds... maybe we'll take an inventory when we put them away for another year. I used to be all about cross stitch in the 80's and early 90's so the tree is loaded with stitched ornaments! We used to exchange handmade ornaments each year for many years on my Mom's side of the family which added many beauties to the branches.
Our old tree skirt shown below was made by me for our very 1st Christmas tree after we were married in 1984. I had a set of handmade 12 Days of Christmas ornaments made of felt with beads & sequins to decorate with. See how it's grown!
Vintage Christmas calicos cut from a tissue paper pattern and yarn tied. I can only hope for 27 more years of love and memories with the new tree skirt!
