Christmas at Our House
After 35 years in the same house, we've finally decided we like our Christmas tree best in the entryway. There is ample space for a tall, chubby tree with lots of room for many of our vintage ornaments including treasured German ones from my husband's grandmother's home in Old Salem. This year we added lots of American flags in honor of our daughter-in-law's baby brother who was serving with the 10th Mountain Division in Afghanistan.
Our little goose feather tree is authentic. I literally found it while hitting yard sales years ago. The young man who was cleaning out his grandmother's house had discarded it along with other old things he'd placed on the curb. He obviously thought only the newer things had value.
