Since the refurbished ceppo is now on top of the curio cabinet, the feather tree is gracing the microwave cart this year. I like it next to what we call "Willow's light," with its Christmasy "lampshade." Below are some avian Christmas boxes and a little reindeer and Christmas cupboard.
The feather tree close up. The Christmas baubles and plastic snowmen and Santas are 1950s vintage and were always on our family tree. I made the other ornaments and the gilded walnuts when I was in junior high school.
Here's what you see when you walk in our front door! You can see the close up of the little cow figurines on the tier table in the previous set of photos.
The miniature ornaments tree glows in the dark.
Here's a cozy place to read!
This year's version of the library tree, with even more ornaments. The garland didn't go on so well this year, though.
Before we had room for a village on our mantel, we had a "vignette," Christmas at the lighthouse. I've always been fascinated with the stories of the lighthouse keepers and their children in the 19th and early 20th century. They withstood great hardship to keep the shipping lanes and coastline safe.
Here's the village, with proper yellow lights!
