I Love Christmas

Normally a picture hangs in this spot.  But for Christmas I put the picture in the storage spot I use for Christmas ceramics and hang this.
When we bought it, it cost$25 and we couldn't afford it.  We bought it anyway.  We've tried to add something each year that we love.  Some years I've made stuff.  Some years we've bought something.  But remembering where and when we got it is part of the pleasure of decorating for Christmas.
Our tree has an origami bird that a Japanese exchange student made for us.  It has an egg carton ornament that a child made at school and gave me.  I have ornaments my kids have made and given me and ornaments my mother-in-law crocheted. 
I love Christmas.
