Getting in the spirit


View of tree with bay window and alpine tree scene. I have a trio of these trees. I added some underlit ‘snow’. Then because I think it needed a little more, I added some little birds, icicles and snowflakes to the tree. The Santa gardener is probably 15 years old. I just found the gnome. His sign says ‘I’ll be gnome for Christmas’. This is before I added my grandfather’s manger scene to the table in front.

I used different kinds of little trees and my collection of Belsnickles as the main decorations. I added a few nutcrackers too. The little white cake dish had three lead Santas and a little silver bell tree.

Update-we tried a different setting as suggested on a website and Bri took this. You can see the ornaments pretty good.

  1. Everything is looking good. Love the sign the gnome is holding. That bay window sure makes a nice display area for the holidays.

    I thought of your tree when I set my table yesterday. It’s in green and gold. 🙂

  2. Oh, Dianne, it all looks absolutely beautiful!! In one of the houses I grew up in, there was a Bay window and mom would always decorate it with a winter scene similar to what you did:-) Your tree is gorgeous as well. Hard to believe that Christmas is only 2 weeks away now! Except for having to make a couple batches of fudge, I think I’m all ready:-) xoxo
