Oh, Christmas Tree!

Our little tree is finally decorated!
Just a few minutes before family
arrives for an early Christmas!

We love what we call a "Charlie Brown" tree.
It's a Western Douglas Fir . 
There is only one place here in Omaha that
we can get them. Our choices this year
12' or 5'. 
With time, energy & ceiling height 
at an all time low...  
the 5' tree came home with us!


I have collected vintage, glass ornaments since before
I got married. I just LOVE them! 
With company arriving soon I didn't have time
 to hang them all, nor would this little tree hold them all. 
So, I piled them in an antique Oshkosh suitcase
along with a Dan DiPaolo snowman.   
 He looks like he's helping to decorate the tree. 

This maybe the only decorating I get done
for the holidays. And that's o.k. 
I will enjoy our simple, little Charlie Brown 
tree and the sparkle from it's branches.
