Under our tree

via here
Silver Ornament
Oil on canvas

Under our tree this year...a table.  See inspiration board here.  A small tree - big advantages.  Inexpensive and easy.  Only ornaments flying this year...rather than the usual curse words while hauling in a 9 foot tree.

And if you have children, you know the life span of the ornaments on the lower half of the tree is short.  All out of reach of Mischief and Mayhem. 

Decorated with my Grandparent's Shiny Brite ornaments and tree topper

While pickin' a local antique mall, I picked up a few more

Aglow with lights, ready to stand guard over our presents

Jennifer C. Webb said..., it's till tacky, but I love it. I was forbade from using tinsel again this year...for months after Christmas last year we were still finding tinsel embedded in the the yard even.

Perhaps an elf may sneak some on the tree after Mr. Webb has gone to bed hmmmm
