Antique tree

This is my treasured antique silver tin tree.  Each and every branch goes back into a paperbag sleeve very delicately and the spine gets unscrewed into 2 poles to store away until my youngest begs for it to come out to play.  I didn't dare use any blown glass ornaments with a new kitty in the house.  He was very good.

May you be blessed in your new year.  xox!

snowing in Houston

Right out my back gate the elementary kids are getting to visit outside to see it snowing.  When we're lucky here it snows no more than once a year.  Kids go nuts!

Oh Christmas Tree shoppe

This is from Labor Day when we went to Schlitterbaun in New Braunsfels, TX.
Isn't this sign funny at the parking area?

You can tell in the background that this is a marvelous old home and every room was filled to capacity with different themes.

It was color themed too.  It was overwhelming to see so much stuff in 1 place.

I'm a blown glass ornament fan.  I use them on my silver tree from my mother-in-law.  We will put it up this year because our chief reindeer has been begging to get it out again. ;)

I only walked out with a few ornaments.  I am not sure where they are or I'd post them.

xox!!  Blessings to ya
