« THE FRIDAY FOODIE The Polar (Bear) Express | Main | HANDCRAFTED SUGAR COOKIE GIFT SACK (these are so easy to make) »


i would love to know how you made the baby owl ornaments. and thanks so much for the polar bear cake pop instructions they look like they would be fun to make.

I can't wait to see the finished tree. I finally went faux recently, and I have to say, the advantage of having all solid branches is the major draw for me. (as is the whole pre-lit factor). I am much the same as you with my tree. When the kids were small, I got them little 4 foot tall fake ones to decorate for their rooms. It let me do my tree the way I want to, and still let them have fun. Even now that they've outgrown it, I have a box for each of them with "their" ornaments.

You have very pretty and vintage looking ornaments. I love the story behind the booties, such a sweet memory. I've (shame) not yet put up my tree. I usually put my tree up Thanksgiving night and add finishing touches by Friday afternoon. This year has been so hectic, that we've not gotten to it yet...and I have two. I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday season. Many blessing to you all.

What a great story about those adorable little shoes Lisa! I can't wait to see your tree all decked out!

I love the baby shoe story. I believe that most people are kind and thoughtful and this incident just shows you that people are basically good. I am looking forward to the finished tree. Your post puts me in the mood to make my holiday baking schedule. All the best, Nana Banana
