My Prim Christmas Tree & Vote For Your Favorite Tree

How many Christmas trees do you have decorated in your home? I have 3 full size trees and today I'm sharing my very favorite tree, my primitive Christmas tree. It's my favorite, because it has the best ornies on it. All of the ornies are ones that I have swapped with my online friends for the past 7 years and it is loaded. By next year I'll need another tree!

This beautiful angel is made by one of my online friends--Deb of Corpus Christie, TX and she tops the tree every year. She's made of crepe paper and cotton batting and one of my very favorites. She hangs out with me in my sewing room year round.

These next several pictures are close ups of the ornies.....







This is what's at the bottom of the tree..... the red sled with dolls and teddy are sitting on top of an antique picnic basket.


Another unique thing about the tree, all of it ornies and the red filled sled is that everything you see is handmade by either myself or a friend--except for the tree and the one dark haired doll in the sled. How neat is that!

Now for the voting part..... Go to A Gathering of Crows and you can see 33 beautiful primitive Christmas trees and make sure to cast your vote for you favorite and yes it is a hard decision, because they're all fabulous!
