Miniature

Several years ago a friend gave me his collection of Hallmark miniature ornaments. Over the years Laurie has added to the collection and I have added other tiny ornaments. The trees kept getting bigger every year and now I use a tall skinny tree. This year the tree is in my kitchen.
This is one of my favorites that Laurie gave me. I'm sure you can tell why!
I love these little clip on snowmen. As you can tell by the pictures I've added a homespun fabric garland a grapevine and berry garland and white lights.
A birdhouse and an icy snowman.
A musical snow trio.
Penguins, mice and snow people.
A cat on a scooter, a mouse sleeping in a sneaker and a cute little angel.
All topped off with a sparkly snow angel.

Aren't they the cutest!

I have a lot of Hallmark on my tree - from my mother, but not the little miniatures.

Your decorations are beautiful.

Merry Christmas

Beautiful tree! The sparkly snow angel topper is just adorable and I like how you've woven that fabric throughout!

So cute. I'm living my holidays through other's blogs these days. Because of renovations, I haven't been able to put up Christmas decorations yet. I'm looking forward to doing so this weekend. Your tree is adorable with lots of priceless treasures!

I love the teeny! They are all so cute - this is a great idea, having a smaller tree in the kitchen, since that's where most of my company and family usually end up anyway!

What a nice collection of tiny ornies you have, Jean. I just love a tree in the kitchen. It makes me feel like baking Christmas cookies.
