Last year we inherited Christmas Ornaments from my FIL, as he was getting the house ready for sale. I love ornaments, and I knew the box was full of treasures. Add those to the ornaments I already had from my grandparents, and I had enough to fill another tree! That justified, I ran off to Target to get one.
This tree is in the front hall, and as long as Cindy doesn’t brush by it too fast or hard, and I attach the ornaments instead of just hanging them, everything will be safe. I wanted a skinny and tall one, because there just isn’t a lot of space, but unlimited height. But I didn’t want to spend a fortune, so I ended up with a skinny 8 footer. I will post a finished photo, somehow I never got around to taking one last year…despite the fact that the tree was up until almost March!
So here is the page, all the deets are on Spellbinders Blog:

Beth, I love my old ornaments, too! I have ones that my daughter made when she was in grade school, (she’s 31 now), ones I have been given over the years by very special family and friends, and some from my Grandma and from my sister who passed almost 3 years ago. They all have memories and are very special. Love your post!
ooh, i love those old ornaments. they are getting harder and harder to find. i like how you have spotlighted them on your card. thank you.
I had to reply to this wonderful heartwarming post. I have all boys and I LOVE my Christmas ornaments and have been saving them for years so that my children, grandchildren will love them as much as I do. I stress that my future DIL’s will not want them. It warms my heart when I read posts like yours!
