Just a few to sparkle

We're not so good with Christmas trees. Yes, we have one. We pulled it out a couple weeks ago while cleaning out the garage and kind of half-heartedly set it up. With a dog and a cat who love to work together to ruin all our pretty things, the collection of ornaments we purchased last year was lucky to make it through their first Christmas. Most are missing their hooks, the sparkle has been ripped off, teeth have punctured the cheap plastic of a few.

Last week, the husband threw a tennis ball for Mocha right through one of the ornaments. Another red one bites the dust. Our tree already looks sickly, pathetic. I fail at decorating.

I can, however, do a bowl of barely survived bulbs.




It's December. Starting tomorrow, we have a different Christmas every weekend. Christmases of friends and family, of love and laughter, of good food and warm drink.

And a few sparkly ornaments, here and there.

    They look beautiful there too. I love the ones with the glitter lines on them. Our tree is in a sorry state after only one week up. Our kitten is having a ball destroying it and as much as it makes me cringe because I love decorating the tree, watching her do it is so amusing.

  2. I love the one with the glitter lines as well. I might just try and make one, since I just bought some glass decorations to decorate ourselves.

  4. Oh, definitely! These aren't homemade, but I'm sure it wouldn't be difficult to accomplish!
