Wow Christmas ornaments have changed...








wow Christmas decorations have changed...
remember when it was just red...green...silver...and gold...
silver icycles...now they even have orange trees...
saw them at Garden Ridge...
my favorite ornaments are the home made ones...
My FIL complains about his neighbors Rooster...
thought I might get him that Rooster for his tree....
Do you do a theme with your tree..
or is it a hodgepodge??

My tree is decorated with Santa's and peppermint looking decorations so I guess there is somekind of theme. Yea, I don't understand the orange tree at all.

No theme to our tree, but it is mainly homemade ornaments by me and a few that my daughter made when she was younger. There are a few family "heirlooms", the first ornament my husband & I bought together & some from places we have traveled to. Of course I love the moose one!

Mine is definitely a hodgepodge with things my kids and grandkids have made, ornaments from my childhood and things I have gotten on trips. Not designer quality, but fun.

I think you should get your father-in-law a whole set of those dang roosters! And hang them around the house all year round! :)

Even though themes are cute, I go hodgepodge all the way!

Would love to have a theme tree but hodgepodge is my theme/ha
Have bought too many on trips not to use them....I love thinking about where I was when I bought them.

Our decorations are a mix of ornaments my kids made, I made, or someone gave us. I don't think I've bought a single ornament.

Now that my kids have left home, I do not get the tree out at all. Husband has a 12 inch tall tree some of his students gave him, years ago, and we put that on top of the scratching post, and pile the presents around it, and use that for the hour we "need" a tree.
My quilting sister started a Christmas quilt years ago, and determined that she would make just one block a year, but she never counted on the colours changing! Way more burgundy now, rather than red, and the greens have darkened, as well!
