I decorated my tree this weekend.
I don’t have a tree topper, yet, because I haven’t found one that I liked enough. I might break down and make one for myself, if I ever decide on what I want. I usually put on all my ornaments (I have a lot!), but this year, I only put on the ornaments I love the best. I think I prefer the sparse look. As you can see, I have one of my favourite ornaments front and centre.
Another one of my favourite ornaments is this collection of whales shaped like a tree, which my brother gave me a few years ago. I used to keep it out all the time, but I’ve decided to leave it with my holiday decorations so it feels a little more special each time I pull it out.
Last year, sometime between Boxing Day and New Year’s, I found a collection of small ornate ornaments (in green, red, gold, and blue) on sale. This is my favourite of them.
And, despite this being made of nothing more then a pill bottle and some cheap plastic beads, this is one of my favourites. It was bought at a craft fair for me when i was a kid.
And, of course, I added my Christmas cones. They’re actually a little bit big for the tree, but I love them and I don’t have anywhere else to put them. Ideally, I’d prefer to have them hanging from the ceiling in the corner, but that’s not easy to do in an apartment with a stippled ceiling.
