One of my favorite Christmas Decorations

There has always been a rule in our house that no Christmas decorations go up until after my birthday (which is on the 5th). I think that is because my parents never wanted to associate my birthday with Christmas even though its so close.

After the 5th though its fair game and one of the first things that is put up is this ceramic tree that my husbands mother painted in 1979. Sadly, shortly after that she passed away. So this is a special holiday decoration that my husband treasures and we always have special place to it so that we can look at it throughout the holiday season.

Michael has asked about it and we told him that he needs to be careful around this because its priceless and that his nanny made it.

Its a beautiful tree that lights up. Although you can’t really see it in this picture. Its a holiday decoration that is treasured in our house. Do you have a favorite ornament or decoration?
