My Holiday Decor

Here's a few pics that I took of some of my decorations. It's not totally prim like I want it or like other peoples. I am slowly getting there. If you look closely in the picture of my big tree you can see two of my kitties. Bebe the white cat on the right is coming out from under the tree, while Bonsai on the left, my tabby cat is getting ready to pounce on her. That's his favorite thing to do. I feel so sorry for Bebe.
























Then when I was taking pics of my big tree Bebe hopped up on one of the big Christmas presents and it was like the perfect picture I got of her! She is the litter mate of my black and white kitty Socks that I just had put to sleep in October.
























Then there is the picture of my German Twig tree with my snowman angel. I have them on top of one of our stereo speakers.





























Here's a link on how to make Moravian paper stars like I have in one of my photos. http://highhopes.com/3dstar.html I made about 2 dozen of them about 10 years ago and still hang them on my tree. I remember it took quite a while to figure out how to make one. I got pretty frustrated, but I wanted to learn how to make one really bad and finally got it. Then I couldn't stop making them. I even made little tiny ones for one of my small trees.

I love both of your trees. Those German Trees are just so prim! I would love to get my hands on one :)

I LOVE the cabinet in the background of your large tree. Looks like an antique.

Your kitty looks so happy and seems like she really wanted to pose for you :)

Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Sandy, Yes that cabinet is an antique secretary bookcase we got about 25 years ago. It's one of my prized possessions of all our antiques.

Pea, I got that tree in January right after Christmas. It was on sale for $9.99 at http://www.flowerpatchblessings.com/
It was called a 18 Inch Slim German Twig Tree.

I just checked her site and she doesn't seem to have any trees right now. Maybe you could email her and ask about them.

Or just google it and see what you come up with.
