Vintage Ceramic Tree

Hello, Dear Ones! First of all I want to thank you all for your sweet thoughts, prayers and cards for our little granddaughter, Carter. Right now she is doing well and has been released to go back to school for a half day. We're waiting for when her next chemo treatment will be. You'll never know how much those prayers have meant to us and I'm sending my love to you.

Now, I started to decorate for Christmas before all of this about Carter hit us. So I took some snaps today so I could share with you. This summer I found a little ceramic tree at a garage sale for $2! I have been looking for one forever and couldn't believe my luck!
Is this not the cutest little ceramic tree you've ever seen? There are only a few little plastic 'bulbs' missing but not enough to matter. I'm so in love with this little tree!

 It's all so sparkly and bright! 1970s heaven!
 I know this is blurry but I couldn't get a better snap as I wanted to show you the base of the tree which holds the little light bulb. It's so pretty with the holly leaves and berries on it. Most of the bases on the ceramic trees I've seen have been just plain. So I feel so very special!! :)
 Look at the little plastic bulbs. There are birds, candles, sputnik like stars and Christmas tree lights.
 That little adorable angel was given to me by my friend, Linda, who blogs at A La Carte. Thank you again, Linda. Then I poked down a little glitter house I made a few years back and an olden bell that hung on my Christmas tree when I was a little girl. Just a bunch of olden things - like me! ;)
Hope you've enjoyed seeing my little olden vignette and my $2 ceramic Christmas tree. You'll never know how much you all mean to me! 

You are all my sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

I'll Be Home For Christmas

I'm dreamin' tonight of a place I love
Even more than I usually do
And although I know it's a long road back
I promise you
I'll be home for Christmas
You can count on me
Please have snow and mistletoe
And presents under the tree
Christmas Eve will find me
Where the love light beams
I'll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams
Christmas Eve will find me
Where the love light beams
I'll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams
If only in my dreams
~ sung by Bing Crosby
