A Tree Grows On My Table ;)

You remember I shared with you we can't put up our Christmas tree just yet because of waiting for flooring to come in and then installed? Well. O just couldn't stand it any more, so I put up a tiny little tree in my den so I could have a little bit of Christmas joy, too!

I had a little time last night so I put it up on my Duncan Phyfe drop leaf table in my den. Just couldn't stand not having some little sparkly lights!

This is a little three or four feet tall tree and I put all of my glass special ornaments on it. I've been collecting for many years these glass hand painted on the inside balls. These photos are a little dark, but they are really very pretty.

This one is black and gold and came from Germany.

The Greenbriar, South Carolina.

Hawaii.

France.
Norway.

Mount Vernon.
A fuzzy one from Norway ;)

The Del Coronado on Coronado Island, California.

Lighthouses of Texas.

I have quite a few of these little ornaments from all over the world. Every time we travel, I try to find one of these little balls.
My only little tree ~ filled with glass balls ~ now I feel better!
Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)
I'll leave you with a little Note Song~
Oh, Christmas Tree
O Christmas Tree,O Christmas Tree,
How steadfast areyour branches!
Your boughs are greenin summer's clime
And through the snowsof wintertime.
O Christmas Tree,O Christmas Tree,
How steadfast areyour branches!
O Christmas Tree,O Christmas Tree,
What happiness befalls me
When oft at oyous Christmas-time
Your form inspires my songand rhyme.
O Christmas Tree,O Christmas Tree,
What happiness befalls me
O Christmas Tree,O Christmas Tree,
Your boughs canteach a lesson
That constant faithand hope sublime
Lend strength and comfort through all time.
O Christmas Tree,O Christmas Tree,
Your boughs can teach a lesson
~sung by everybody! ;)
