Love Our Tree

December 22, 2014

And the lights, and ooh, the ornaments.  So fun.  New this year, fire hydrant, cast iron pan with bacon and eggs, and roll away toolbox.  They join all the vegetables, fruit, tractors, dairy stuff, wheelbarrow, chickens, dragonflies, rubberboots, vices, hearts, dragonflies, dog bones, tractors, clover, baby shoes, manure spreader, nuts, cats, antlers, salamanders, geese, cows, horses, food, and other mass produced replicas smacking of consumerism.  If only I could find a glass cow pie!  We’re gonna need a bigger tree pretty soon.

You certainly are a Noble fellow!

    Gorgeous! Did you cut it off the farm?

      No, our trees are too sparse for all our ornaments, Christmas tree farms are everywhere around here so we like to support that type of local farm too 🙂

    Beautiful, love all the different ornaments. It is so fun to collect them. This year was a tight Christmas, my husband cut a tree and brought it home, I believe it was some type of cedar, but it decorated beautifully. When I bring out the decorations I love all the memories. Some of my favorites are the ones my boys made in school when they were young.

    i never comment, but am a long time reader…where oh where do you find those dragonfly ornaments? preferably a shop thatll ship to old scandinavia if possible.

      You know we hunt for “ornaments” all year round, some aren’t actually ornaments, so we make them hangable or add clips etc. Garden shops, Dollar store, and craft and fabric stores all have decorative items and usually at a big markdown too compared to a certified ornament. Sometimes we find some neat stuff, other times we go ages without seeing anything that strikes our fancy.
