I showed you my hearth tree with the old fashion ornaments in a previous post. This is my angel tree.
|The dark blob on the left is Kalli-cat. She wouldnt stay out of the pic. The tree is in an old blue enamel basin. An old plaid fabric woven with angels is wrapped around the bottom. I cant bear to cut it!|
My mom started a collection of ornaments for me as a child. A zillion years later I had too many to put on my Christmas tree. I noticed I had a lot of angel ornaments.
About half were gifts over the years starting with this first one a little brass girl with a bell and my name.
It was the first ornament I hung on the tree Christmas Eve before Santa decorated the tree while I slept.
The other half are these wonderful church bazaar ornaments. I really miss the old style church bazaars.
I had a table to sell things at a Moravian church bazaar this year and found this creative angel.
Here is another vintage ornament from my grandmother and a tree topper.
I even have a quilt angel my mom found for me a dozen years ago.
I still have my rusty kitchen Christmas tree to put up. I also havent gotten my real tree yet. Too much sewing, and on that note I leave you with my finished mug rugs under the hearth tree. They are gifts for my regular library volunteers who shelve, process books, and check out to students. I made six in all. Love my volunteers.
PS If you haven't sung my Mug Rug carol you can find it here.
