Oh, Christmas Tree!

 Happy 12.12.12 Everyone! If twelve is your lucky number, well, today is your day.

I love all the sentimental tidbits that come along with Christmas. Most of all: The tree ornaments. I always admire the themed trees with their coordinated baubles and matching tree skirt, but it's not for me. Pulling out that eclectic mix of old and new, handmade and store bought, tacky and beautiful, and putting them all in once place... I love that.

So thought I'd share our tree, and a couple of ornaments I especially love this year:
Picked up this one on our Mini-Moon this last April.
Attaches to a light to illuminate the 'window'
Handmade in Kazakhstan (from LBD)
A fave from my Mom - I call it a glass prickly pear.
LOTS of ski theme happening thanks to the hubs.
Our tree skirt, pieced & quilted by my maternal grandma.
Nothing better than a tree lighting up the room.
 There's something so peaceful about the light of a Christmas tree glowing through a room. Take a minute in this crazy crush of holiday activities to soak in that peace - It's a rarity!
