Happy New Year everyone! I’ve been wanting to show you one of the other Christmas decorations we have, our ornament wreath. It’s in our front hall were the lighting couldn’t be worse for photographing it so I kept forgetting to get some pictures. Today I noticed it was as well lit as it was ever going to be so I snapped a few pictures for you.

Our Christmas Wreath

Our Christmas Wreath

Long before Millie & Walter came along we started using a couple of artificial wreaths to display our ornaments for Christmas. The wreath is fairly large and is a great way to keep things out of reach of curious puppies.

Many of the ornaments on the wreath are of birds and other wildlife we see around our house.

Some of the ornaments are gardening tools and some Santa’s with wildlife or gardening themes.

Hi everyone it’s Cindy here. First I want to apologize for not commenting much lately. As I explained earlier I had been crafting my fingers weary and then a few days ago I got knocked out by a very nasty migraine headache. Since I am finally feeling among the living I just finished catching up on all your blogs with a minimum of comments.

With that off my chest I thought I would show you our Christmas tree. You might have caught a glimpse of it in our previous post so I thought I would give you a close up view.

Yes it is an artificial tree and it sits on a table to keep nosy puppies away from the precious ornaments. We have had this tree for many years and I love being able to have one up and not have to worry about the pups wrecking it. One of our special new ornaments this year is the angel we bought from Mollie & Alfie’s shop.

She was the first ornament I put up this year. I just love her cute smile. Here are a few of my other favorite ornaments on our tree.

Yarn Snowman Ornament

This yarn snowman (sorry Frankie & Ernie) is our newest ornament and was part of Millie’s gift exchange pressie from Jacque of My Life With Scotties (more about the rest of the pressies later). He is so cute and just what I needed to represent my obsession with yarn.

Lighted Bird House

This bird house is really fun and I love how you can put a bulb inside to light up it’s Christmas tree and all the lights on its house.

This is a very cool painted ornament that I like to place with some lights right behind it. I love the way it looks especially at night.

Whimsical Dog Ornament

One of the most fun ornaments is this cute dog ornament I received many years ago from a co-worker. It makes me giggle every time I look at it.

Christmas Tree at Night

Here is another look at our tree with most of the room lights off. There are a lot of German Shepherd and Rottweiler ornaments to represent our Angels as well as a variety of glass and ceramic ornaments. I like to finish it off with a set of red balls and a red wooden bead garland that looks like cranberries strung together without the mess.

I hope you enjoyed seeing our tree this year. So far we haven’t found any ornaments to represent Millie & Walter but we will keep on looking.
