Christmas Collage


 Today I invite you to step into our simple home and take a look at some of my favorite Christmas ornaments.

We do not have a large home so therefore the tree needs to be small.
This collage shows some of the decorations.
I would like to point out the bright green wreath,this was made by our son in 1979,when he was in grade 1.
It has been on our walls every Christmas since then.

The birth of Jesus is the sunrise in the Bible.

  1. You have some beautiful treasures there, Ruth. Your bright green wreath reminded me of a paper peppermint stick that my granddaughter colored when she was a child. I always had to hang it on the tree every Christmas.

  2. A home, or a tree, doesn't have to be large to hold wonderful treasures. Your collage is beautiful, as is the Henry van Dyke quote.

  5. Loved your collage! There is such beauty in simplicity and hand-crafted items! Your tree is just lovely! What did your son use to make that pretty green wreath? Couldn't quite tell - it looks like feathers!

  6. Loved it Ruth.... All of your favorite ornaments and your tree are just so filled with LOVE. I can 'feel' it... Love that wreath--and what memories you have with it... Love the cross-stitch piece also--with the Poinsettias. Did you make it? The manger scene is adorable--and I LOVE the 'best bus driver' ornament.... ALL are so special. Thanks for sharing.
    Hugs,

  7. Christmas is such a special holiday, certainly first and foremost because of our Savior's birth, but secondly because of the precious time we are able to spend with our families and the memories we create and tuck away. What a beautiful way to share the special memories of Christmas' past.

    When we take out the ornaments to decorate our tree, I usually remind everyone where or who each one came from and we all think and chat for a moment sharing the special memories.

    What a lovely post. I am going to have to copy it when I get my tree decorations out! Thanks for sharing with us all!

  12. What a grand way to display your decorations. I must try it. I like that wreath your son made. It looks like feathers. I made a feather tree for mu hubby the Christmas before we were married.
    I bet you are very proud of your #1 bus driver ornament.

  14. Hi Ruth! I love the story of the green wreath. My folks have some decorations that my brother and I made over the years too and they are the only things that get put out *every* year regardless of any other circumstances. So heartwarming!
