This tree is set up in no time. I took some white or cream, mercury glass and silver ornaments from my old tree to add to my own handmade lace ornaments. The lace stands out well and I enjoy remembering making the lace.
This pencil pine was the perfect tree for the antique tree stand I found at a flea market in Germany when on vacation a year ago.
I do miss my big tree but am glad that I have a tree that is set up in about an hour instead of two days. As I write to you, I am looking at the glowing lights in my tree this evening which make my lace really stand out and am happy with the changes this year.
I find the words of Norman Vincent Peale ring true...
"Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful."
