Well I have started the tree, but it is slow going. I put so many ornaments on that it takes about a week to finish. My ornaments are not fancy, just ones I love and that have special meaning.

I love my sock monkey and the little pink marshmallow looking fellow is an old one-probably from the fifties. The first place I go to at estate sales is where the Christmas decorations are.I have lots of the old Shiney Bright ornaments.Now to add about a hundred more ornaments and it will be done. I think I need to work on the top of the tree too-it looks like I set one of Maedeas hats on top!LOL! I am joining Kim for Wow Us Wednesday at

That sock monkey is so stinking cute! I love your tree!


The Japanese Redneck said... don't have to worry about me buying the ornaments at Estate sales. Only time I put up a tree is if we are having a party for a large group and haven't done that in years.

My tree is also filled with memories. One of my favorites is the glass ornament my Dad painted my name on when I was a baby. He died more than 40 years ago, so it's extra special.

I think your sock monkey and your puppy dog are really cute!

Your sock monkey ornament is adorable! I would treasure it, too. Our tree is filled with ornaments gathered over the years. I don't like trees that have all matchy-matchy stuff.

Simply lovely, and what a perfect shade of green! I thought immediately of My Fair Lady, and of Mary Poppins, with all the wealthy suffragettes in their exquisite chapeaux.

Happy December!
