Staring at my tree...





 Ola Rosselot made this beauty, along with the next 2 snowmen...



Sandy Morgan made this pineapple block...it is TINY!


 I made this reindeer 100 years ago...at least...


I also made the next 4...





Barb Flynn made cinnamon "cookies" for everyone in my family...


When I worked in the research lab, a good friend Chen and his family made these beautiful origami lucky ball ornaments...



Cheryl Grajewski made the woven heart...


Chris Jones made Frosty...


I made the chicks a couple of years ago from egg shells and pompoms...


I made these up several years ago...I call them "Alabama reindeer" - they are made from raw peanuts...


Jo Watson made me a Weasley ornament...


Marilyn Agin made this crocheted snowman...


I am honored to have one of Ellen Taylor's whimsical Santa's (with a blown egg for a head)...


And Judy Endres made the next two...



Then a couple from Margit McPhee...



Marilyn Lange made the cardinal...


MaryLiz made the folded ball...


I made the next five...






My tree is very eclectic, which I LOVE...lots of variety and lots of homemade by me or by friends.  I love to just sit and stare...

In stitches,

  1. I much prefer homemade ornaments - whether self made or gifted. My tree only has handmade as well as my daughter carries that tradition.

  9. The woven labels are playing a vital role in conferring a bran recognition to the business organization. The woven labels also enhance the ambiance of the clothes in the best ever manner. Computerised woven labels manufacturers
