O Christmas Tree, O Christmas tree, How lovely are your branches!

I made this ceramic Christmas tree for my mom back in 1983.  Mom would set it out every year on top of a bookcase in the living room.  I never would have guessed that 30 years later this tree would still be around and sitting in my home.   It has been tucked in a box in my fruit cellar for a number of years now.   When I pulled it out a couple days ago and plugged it in, I was happy to see it cheerfully light up.   I set it on a file cabinet next to my computer and sewing machine where I turn it on and enjoy memories of Christmas past.


  1. Lovely memories... My MIL had one similar, I hope one of her grands took it. Happy New Year's wishes :)
