Treasures On My Christmas Tree

Some pretty decorations that are hanging on our tree.

and the most important message for us all this Christmas is peace.
This little white wreath with the little angel was given to me by a family friend when I was 10 years old.
It is looking a little old and tired but it has been with me for too long to cast it away in a box.

and this little dolly peg angel was a creation from last year.
Made with love by my children and I one rainy Christmas day.
The china plate below left is so sweet and tiny and fitted in just perfectly.

Another home made decoration (below)
Made very cheaply with scraps of scrapbooking paper, pearl trim and ribbon.

and I couldn't leave Marie Antoinette out.
This sweet little lady (below right) was a gift from my son many years ago

The 'Starburst' pictured on the left was a gift from my friend Miss M last year. She made a few of these little sparklies and I love them !
and not forgetting the queen of the tree !
and somehow it all just works beautifully together !

Tomorrow I will be announcing my
Christmas Giveaway
