Festive Trees


Just a few of the shops on Marcy street all decked out for Christmas. Do you have a favorite ornament that you put up every year? I have too many to list.

No particular favourite ornament. Just love decorating the tree and house with many ornaments and lights.

Wonderful scene, I really like the Christmas season.

Halcyon said...

I like it when shops have accessories like these Christmas tree pots. They're really nice and festive!

Judy said...

Very pretty. I do have a few favorite ones.

Sharon said...

I have a huge collection of ornaments but, I'm especially fond of "Santa Claus" ornaments. I usually pick up one or two news every year.

Festive trees and festive everything else! I like the way Santa Fe has a "small-town" feel to it...everything here is so spread out. Well, we have our old downtown but that's only a few blocks and we don't get there very often.

a cowboy boot with chili peppers coming out of the top....that's my favorite.

Dawn said...

Love it when things go all festive. I DO buy more then:)

My favorite decoration would have to be the cardboard star wrapped in tinfoil we put on the top of our tree every year. We made it when we didn't have money for a tree topper.

I don't have one right now, but my husband loves to hang the one with the Cardinal on it.

And a festive scene you have captured!

Like you, we have to many to list. My wife hand painted the majority of the bulbs years ago. There is also several that were made by her Grandma who created Christmas scenes with tiny figures inside the cut out openings of goose eggs. The decorated tree always amazes our friends and family.

I like the ones that remind me of when the kids were little. I have one of a mouse making a snowmouse and he uses nickels for the ears.
Love that Kathy is window shopping!

All our 'Christmasy' ornaments are from the 40's and 50's which were my grandmother's. The rest of the ornaments are non-christmas style and are ones I bought each year one at a time for my wife representing a significant event of the past year. I would put it on the tree and see how long it took her to notice. Usually not very long. Then there are some I hand made for her. Now the tree is so loaded that there is no more room and I don't have to come up with an ornament for the year anymore. Whew!

Tiny hand-knit mittens hanging off a lantern. :)

Luis Gomez said...

Yes! Christmas is here and everywhere. Good capture Randy! I just love decorating the tree.

Sandy said...

That looks like a cozy place. Gosh I'm really not sure what my favorite one is...but if you saw my Christmas tree- you wouldn't think they were really ornaments at all. ;)

I have a little red figure skate that I always give special attention to by making sure it is well lit!

Farmchick said...

I like these! Very festive, but I also agree with Kathy...the stuff in the window looks good too.

All of the Christmas mood ...

A nice holiday scene, Randy.

We have a great many favorite ornaments. By now, we have collected ornaments for about 40 years, from all sorts of different places. As they go on the tree, they bring back happy memories.

Looks like the snow is almost gone. It helps if it dots the branches yet these are festive indeed even without the snow!

I love every Christmas ornaments, but the most important ornament is a statue of Jesus Christ under the Christmas tree.
