I don't do a lot of Christmas decorating. Usually just the tree and a couple of little things on shelves around the house.
This year I tried to stay with a certain color scheme -- pink, red, white, green, and a little silver, gold and a tiny touch of black. Quite a few of my ornaments have a garden theme.
What would a tree be without a birdhouse?
And we must have birds to live in them....
And sip nectar from the flowers.
What would a garden be without a gazebo?
I used to be a frequent contributor to the Garden Junk forum at GardenWeb, and one year some of us exchanged handmade ornaments. The folks on that forum are very crafty. I made Victorian boots for everyone.
The following ornaments all came from that exchange.
A few years ago I decided to try my hand at beading, and I made a bunch of these red and green stars as ornaments for the tree.
At a local craft shop I found some garden fairies to hang as ornaments. I'm using one as a tree topper. Or are they angels?
Well, they're very festive.
They really put me in a Christmas mood.
I like looking at them in the tree, smiling at me.....
And saying "Merry Christmas!"
