The Decorations Up Close

 It's not your usual tree...

Well, lets see the close-ups of the ones I used this year...  The cardinals always have to be there.  I love Cardinals. 
A general view of one side of the tree.
The bird nests are favorites.  And yes, those are real bird nests.  The eggs are painted wood.  
I love my apples.  They are at least 40 years old. 
I didn't even remember these.   Glass pine cones all covered in glitter!
A view of another side of the tree.
A glass hummingbird.  I have 6 of pairs of colors.  I LOVE those.
And of course, what is a tree without a cat?  This is an old decoration from Mom.  I think there used to be buttons for eyes that got replaced when she (Mom) was young, by ink.  I hope to pass this one (and others) along some day.

Your ornaments are beautiful. I love a touch of red scattered in the tree somewhere. I've always loved Christmas Tree Ornaments and used to buy something new every year. Had to stop that when we downsized the tree.
