Feather Tree

I have decided my table top feather tree is going to be it for us this year. I have some of my most valuable ornament on it. 

My sweet vintage santa

A pink basket of fruit.

This is called a dresden ornament it is pressed paper.
They are from the late 1800's not knowing what it was when I bought it for .25 and I found it is worth 200.00-300.00 while not a pretty Christmas theme it makes me smile because I would never spend the big money on them but .25 is good.

I used my fold out creche.  I am as decorated as I am going to be.

Tonight we headed to a local eatery for wine down Wed. All wine is 1/2 price with a couple of apps we were good. We came out to find a candy cane with a note from the local little brownies. 

And last but not least we had the high school caroling in town last week. 
It sounded so lovely and gave us all the Christmas spirit
My husband's family gathers this weekend and then it is right on to Christmas!
I hope you are all enjoying this beautiful season. We are still mild but going into the cold this weekend. Winter will surely come at some point so I am enjoying the nice weather.

Love your little tree and the vintage Santa. We had a set very similar but sadly there are only 2 left. So fragile

I love your feather tree, I just have small ones in the house.
Love your fold out creche, I found an advent one but realize, I have no room for it.

Your little feather tree looks beautiful and that pricy little pig is lucky to have found his new home with you. What a great return on your investment...

I love those old vintage tree ornaments and I remember having a folding creche many years ago. I wonder what happened to it... Yours is in perfect condition.

Enjoy the great time this time of year has to offer.
Stay safe and warm.

Love your charming ornaments and feather tree! No matter how big or small the decorations, it's the spirit in your heart that matters and you sound like it's full of Christmas! We had the warm too but cold is here today and the weekend....then back to the 60's next week. Crazy weather but I'll enjoy every snowless day till Spring!
