My Christmas Tree!

O Tannenbaum

Well, the tree is up!
Let’s take a look at her:

I like how the red pops out from the tree.  I found the cardinal tree topper at Pottery Barn last year.

My faux-kitty cat sits under the tree. She promises never to climb the tree.


My vintage German ornament

 One of my favorite ornaments, Steiff’s “Kitten in a Mitten”.

Snowden, who is an animated snowman, sits and plays music in front of the tree.

Yes, I have a fake tree.  It’s hard finding real trees in Southern California… that look good.

So I settled for a fake one for now.

I love having the tree on… it provides such nice ambient light.

isn’t it pretty?

    Beautiful! I have a fake tree too, it's less fire hazard and not so messy. I love your Steiff ornament and your red cardinal on top of the tree!

    I love the red pops on your tree. I know red and green are traditional Christmas colours but never would have thought of just red against my green tree. Thanks.
