The real meaning of Christmas


Hi Guys! I just wanted you to know how much I appreciate each of you and your sweet comments. I've been really busy lately making things for a christmas show I'm doing Friday and Saturday with a group of ladies. I have over 60 items! Next week I can get my house cleaned and back to some serious blogging. LOL! I just wanted to show you my gold tree in the computer/t.v. room where I'm at most of the time. It is done in angels, crosses, stars and nativity scenes. The rest of my house is fun, but this tree represents the real meaning of Christmas.


It's kind of in a tight corner and I'm not sure the elephant fits in.LOL!



Also, I'll be taking my Etsy store down for a few days. I'm taking all of my inventory to the show. I should have it back up soon. I'll be talking to you guys later!

Kristen its just beautiful girl as everything you do..love all the Gold and you know I was at a blog today where she placed a nail on her tree each year in rememberance of Jesus and I thought that was wonderful idea...I got my nail and placed it on my tree after that..hugs and smiles Gloria

Kristen this is just beautiful. I believe you have the midas touch. Good luck at your show. I remember all too well trying to get ready for them. hugs ~lynne~

Melissa Miller said...

Ahhh! It's so elegant. I think it's my favorite of all your trees. I say this because it's hard to pick a favorite anything in your home. Good luck with the show and don't work too hard. I'm lovin' my swag so much! By any chance do you have any more of the red scroll ball ornaments that were on it? If I could buy a few extra for my tree that would be awesome. They are so unique. I know you are super busy right now so even if it's after Christmas no hurry. If you don't have any left or sell them like that I understand. Let me know whenever you get time. ~Melissa :)
