O Christmas Tree!

This morning I took a photo of my living room Christmas tree so I could show my dear friend Donna in Oregon. She sent me a beautiful ribbon ornament and I wanted her to see how perfectly it coordinated with the colors on my tree. Anyway, I thought you might all like to see it too . . .

Happy Day After Christmas! Are you going out shopping the SALES? I'm staying home and enjoying the day in my craft room. :)

The tradition of bringing a tree inside at Christmas and decorating it with candy, baubles and bells was started in the nineteenth century and is immortalized in the carol O Christmas Tree lyrics.
