Christmas Tree

Merry Christmas…

There is an ornament on this tree with a bite taken out of it. There is an ongoing argument between my sisters over who took that bite. I’ll let them hash that out amongst themselves when they see this on Facebook.

    Very cute! We have a marshmallow snowman hanging on our tree with a bite taken out of its backside on the sly.

      Thanks… I really wanted to add more to this one, but I ran out of time. There’s always next Christmas!

    I love it — this puts that poor skimpy Charlie Brown tree to shame! The lights are a brilliant touch. My favorite though is the “hotel art” of a lighthouse hanging behind the couch.

    I forgot about eating ornaments — you just reminded me why I didn’t further explore stringing popcorn with my kids this year.

      :) Thanks! That’s actually a conglomeration of paintings by my great-grandmother that used to hang around the house. I used to stare at her paintings and wonder if I’d ever be able to paint as good as she did. The portrait that appears in all the dining room scenes is of her when she was young. I loved her so much! She was a neat lady. I desperately want one of those old paintings to hang in my house now.

      I hope you guys had a merry Christmas! I am still out of town and will have to catch up on everyone’s blogs when I get back next week!

        That is super cool! I wish I had beloved family art relics like that too. That’s not hotel art at all. And a lighthouse is much better than my drawings of colonial people. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas in your world and a safe trip home.

    I have to chime in here. I love the lights as well. I always wonder how long these take you every time I see one!

    1. themiddlestsister Avatar

      Thank you! They take a while, usually between 8-12 hours every week depending on complexity and number of scenes.

    Love the lights, but my favourite part has to be the angel’s facial expression. LOVE. Merry Christmas!

    there’s an ornament on my tree that looks like a gingerbread man in its cookie cutter, and I always want to eat it. It is not edible, though, and we never eat gingerbread.

    One of these years I won’t be able to resist.

    How did you make the lights?
