Christmas Decorations

ice storm and snow
transform all
winter wonderland

trees bedecked
in natures finest jewels
winter morning

Since I love homemade Christmas decorations our tree and house are usually full of an eclectic mix of old and new.  Some years we work together making new ornaments to hang, once from necessity, now as a fun tradition 

christmas decorations
assortment of memories
hung on my tree

Christmas time
icicles and snowflake fairies
dance overhead

from the archway
twinkling icicle lights
all year long


  1. Oh I love the snowflake ballerinas - what fun. We always made ours as well now my grown children are making faces at all the things we made long ago.

    1. a few years ago my grown up children had our entire living room floor covers with scarps of craft stuff making things for our tree and theirs. They still enjoy.

  2. Ah, yes. Making decorations and, as Moonie says, grown children mocking the 'art'.

    1. So true! I love those really ugly pieces of art they couldn't bare to part with and now beg you to throw away. (I'm thinking of a particularly hideous rabbit)

  3. What beautiful decorations!!!!

    I still have the egg-carton-and-tempera-paint star my parents made for my first Christmas. Home made decorations are the best :)

  4. Nice set. Love the thought of making decorations:)-
