Tree. Ornaments. And All The Hullabaloo.

December is always crazy time.

While many folks have been out and about, hitting the malls, fighting over parking spaces, and all that jazz....I've been delightfully holed up in my little home. Painting, drawing, making a few gifts, feeding the backyard birdies, and setting up the tree. I had to trek to the city today to pick up some much-needed gesso and after two hours of fighting the traffic and crazy people, I was quite glad to get back to my quaint and quiet town.

I snapped a few shots of my little tree and a bunch of new additions to the quirky ornament collection:
I think this robot and jellyfish are my two favorites for this year. The 'bot was spied in a small shop here in town and, me being me, I could not resist a glass robot ornament. The glass jellyfish I snatched up from a recent zoo trip. I think I may have squealed a little when I first saw it.A German handmade wooden crocodile (with stopwatch!) from Leavenworth, WA. The gal sitting on a glitzy moon was handmade by the ever-amazing Very Merry Fairies.Teensy glass acorn and birdy made in Poland and bought in Leavenworth for mere pennies.An oldie but a goodie--a Beatles ornament I made years ago from a toilet paper tube. Also, a recently rediscovered Han Solo ornament that had been hiding out in a box of all my old Star Wars geekiness. Han, you do my tree proud.

And here's some tree shots:
I hope you are all doing well during this busy time of year!

It just takes time, really. Though, you guys have the benefit of a nifty little girl hanging around--put that kid to use and have her make some ornaments! They'll be *way* cuter and cooler than the storebought ones. :)

Looking forward to Sunday!

Oh how fun, I love seeing your tree; thanks for sharing. I'm enjoying everyone's Christmas decoration sharing on their blogs. I've not put up decorations for a few years now. One day I'll start again.

Thank you! :) I too like seeing how others do up their homes for the holidays. I'm usually okay at putting decorations up...but absolutely terrible about taking 'em down. Hopefully the tree will come down this year before February. *cough*
