Good Morning Sweet Bloggers!! The season is upon us and I marvel at how fast the days go by!  My little tree has ornament overload because I cannot leave any little sentimental ornament in the box! Ha!

My Mom, my Bill, cousins and friends as well as my grown children have contributed through the years.  My favorite is the Madonna of the Poor ornament by far...
 The Milkweed pod ornament was made when my children were little and it has survived many Christmases.
The little Moon Santa below is one of our own creations.  I would draw a pattern, Bill would cut it out and then I would paint it.  I have several that are very large for wall deco.

Although this is a little blurry, it is also one of my favorites, my original Santa face painted on a light bulb that is shaped like a flame.  I covered the threaded part with a bit of red plaid fabric for his hat.
This one is one I drew and then Bill had cut out of roof flashing metal!  Love it!  I miss my Bill so much and it was hard decorating without him.  So many memories!
And Last but not Least, a photo from outside when done.  It is only a 3 ft. tree but I hung just as many ornaments on it as if it were a large floor tree-ha!
And here is my little Lilly in her new doggy Christmas neckerchief that my cousin sent in the mail today.  Love it!
Thank you so much for stopping by and do check out the other Pink Saturday posts to see what others are sharing at Beverly's How Sweet the Sound! 
My heart to yours...

Good Morning Kerrie, Your Christmas decorations are pretty. We haven't had the snow and ice that everyone around us is getting. It is kinda like we are in a pocket, but it sure is cold this morning. 9 degrees without the wind chill. The sun is shining, but I was told to watch for icy spots if I get out. The only thing I may do is go to the nursing home. You have a big change from SC now. have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

Your tree looks lovely. I have a box of handmade ornaments from my kids, family, and friends. A few years ago I put them all on our tree for that Christmas.
