I love Christmas trees. Usually, I can barely wait for Thanksgiving to be over so I can set up the tree. I finally got the silver tree I’d been dreaming about a couple of years ago, and, because I have black/white/grey issues, all of my ornaments fit that color scheme.
Jen gave me this one when we had our candy making session. It’s perfect for my tree!
Mom gave me a few owls this year. They are absolutely gorgeous, but my foster kitty likes to knock them off the tree.
This one is a Victorian-style cone ornament.
Faux mercury glass:
A cloisonne ball and a glass pendant:
Black sparkly star from Target a couple of years ago:
Because I live in Charleston, I’m usually not a big fan of snowflake decorations at Christmas. It always seems silly to put up snowflakes when it’s 60-70 degrees outside. However, this beaded one is too pretty to resist.
Another Target find. This one reminds me of a sea urchin.
Finally, for a bit of humor, Darth Vader. He fits the color scheme!
Ok, this is where my Christmas post gets silly. I found this reindeer costume at Petsmart. I had to have it. Taking these pictures of Hamlet last night made me laugh hysterically. Half the shots came out blurry because I was laughing too hard to hold my camera properly.
This is the face of resentment. He will probably eat my favorite blanket as revenge.
Even though I turned on the flash and ruined the shot, I had to post this one because of his expression. If that isn’t a look of total defiance, I don’t know what is.
“Why are you doing this to me?!” I couldn’t get those damn antlers to stay up. He refused to keep his ears in the little ear holes, and the antlers were floppy.
“I’m going to my happy place.”
Trying to correct the floppy antler:
At this point, I gave up. His little face was too pathetic (and hilarious).
Next year, Hamlet! The reindeer costume has been stored in an undisclosed location so that you can’t chew it in protest.
Merry Christmas to you all. I hope the holidays bring you health and (homespun) happiness.
