We had a really fun weekend of camping and today I've got pictures to share…
Eye Candy Friday
It wouldn’t be Christmas around here without my mom’s jeweled Christmas tree hanging in our dining room. I still can’t believe I let this sit in the garage for years without displaying it – now I think it’s beautiful and I enjoy looking at it very much.
And so here we are, the last weekend before Christmas. I’ve got lots to do to get ready for our Christmas Eve party but I truly enjoy entertaining our family and friends so I’m excited about it. And in between I plan on sneaking in a lot of quiet moments with Dale, savoring the lights and the season and the love that surrounds us, especially on Saturday night when we celebrate the winter solstice. We will gather around the fire and state our intentions for the year ahead, just as our ancestors have done before us.

Beautiful tree and beautiful post!
I love your mom’s jeweled tree. Such a lovely treasure. And the return of blog-snow! Now I know it’s Christmas. 🙂
God Jul, Carole!
What an original and beautiful way to display these; that it was your mom’s makes it perfect! I also love looking at gently falling snow that I don’t have to shovel!
Your mom’s vintage jewelry is wonderful and so beautifully arranged into a delightful design. You have a piece of her history, her style and her life…truly something to treasure.
I know I’ve told you before, but I truly love your Mom’s tree, it’s such a wonderful symbol of the beauty of the season and a treasured memory for you. You are Blessed!
I love that tree. What a great way to keep her in your hearts during the holiday season. Enjoy your weekend.
Love the tree. Enjoy the weekend! We all need to remember to see/savor the holiday and not just work towards it.
What a festive and happy reminder of your mother. The things we didn’t fully appreciate in our callow youth become treasures–so nice this work of art is not relegated to the garage anymore. The articulating of intentions for the coming year is also nice–there’s a very different spirit from making resolutions. Have a wonderful weekend!
Your mother’s tree is just a work of art. It’s a gift to have on display at Christmas time. She had a good eye for color and design and was obviously craftsy. Wasn’t it nice to inherit her talents as well! Merry Christmas.
I love your jewelled tree, it is just gorgeous! I have some old brooches that I might have to find some way to display at some point. We are getting ready for our Christmas Eve open house also…lots of work, but oh so worth it. Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas! I think part I am looking forward to the most is singing. I love carols!
I love your tree~enjoy seeing it every year! I still want to make one……..sweet memory of your Mom!!
I definitely want to make one for next year. What is it made of?
That Christmas tree is a great idea. I’m going to amass some on my Mom and MIL’s stuff we till have around and add a few of my own.
