It’s getting downright cold here in Fairhope and beginning to look a lot like Christmas. But I haven’t unpacked my Christmas decorations just yet. I like to do things in order, so Thanksgiving must come first.
But because I know some of you Jolly Elves just can’t wait, I wanted to show this to you before you go tromping through the woods to chop down your perfect Christmas tree.
This is my favorite Christmas ornament.
Because I love to see it year round, it remains in the china cabinet and is never packed away with the other decorations. A slice off the bottom of the trunk, and a small hole drilled in the top, an engraved note from the local trophy shop, and there you have it!
Our first tree wasn’t found in the snow -covered woods. We bought it in the parking lot of the Home Depot in Marietta, Georgia. Very romantic and dreamy.
I don’t know why we didn’t save the slices from my children’s first-year trees. I guess I had the baby-fuzz-brain condition. It hasn’t eased up yet. I’m waiting. Patiently.
Do tell, what is your favorite ornament?
