Every year I bring this small wire tree to the office to add a little Christmas cheer and atmosphere to my work area. I’ve had it around 20 years or so, and it’s about 18-24 inches tall. Over the years, I have collected small, old world Christmas ornaments that represent the Christmas season and interests I have.
It’s a cheerful little tree that glistens and shimmers with sweet shiny ornaments, and jingles like bells when moved or shaken. I thought I’d share a few of my favorites with you.
Candy is a favorite at any time of year, not just Christmas.
Sweet little gingerbread houses . . .
I took these photos early in the morning before anyone else arrived at the office, with only the lights of our large Christmas tree in the background for lighting. Despite the low lighting, they came out very colorful and yet somewhat moody. The tiny twinkle lights came out as bright balls of color in the background
This little basket of flowers represents my love of gardening.
And this might be the most unusual ornament for a Christmas tree, but it represents my love of college football, most especially, the Ohio State Buckeyes.
It’s a happy little tree that is a riot of color and source of entertainment to all that walk by. It’s not only a collection of ornaments, but a collection of memories that bring much joy.
