O Tannenbaum

Our humble mountain tree (that Mama B cut and dragged down the snowy hill all by herself! But don't be very impressed; I nearly croaked from the exertion.)

We love birds and bees and every winged thing.

Hang on a minute! Where did these come from?

The vintage Hallmark USS Enterprise and shuttle came from Grampy B (a devoted Trekkie). And the glam fish was a gift from a friend and former employer. Isn't she a cutie? Thanks, Dr. H!

On a more serious note: the dear little vintage train from Daddy's childhood. Too old to chug, but so festive, and the girls just love trains!


  1. Oh absolutely wonderful. I love your ornaments. I am so glad that you survived the tree dragging hehe I am always in over my head like that lol! so I can so relate!! We also have the same star trek ornaments my hubby is like the biggest closet trekkie :) He will of course deny it but we all know the truth! loved the pictures Merry Christmas & Blessings Heather:)

  2. I'm so glad you survived the tree-hauling excursion! Isn't it fun being a pioneer woman? :)

    The ornaments are all very happy-looking together, despite their differences.

    I think we may have that Star Trek ornament somewhere around here, too.



  3. How lovely~ dear friend!
    Your Christmas tree is BEAUTIFUL!
    I so enjoyed all of the pictures...
    each ornament is so different and unique!!

    Christmas Blessings~ Miss Jen

  4. What a gorgeous tree! I love the beehives (I only just learned the whole significance of them the other day) and my husband is a Trekkie as well (original series only, if you please)so he would love that. MY favourites are the birds. I adore birds, did you know?

    My best wishes to you and your family for a very Merry and Blessed Christmas!


  5. I love all the birdie ornaments! And - you cut and hauled that tree all by yourself?? I am impressed!

  6. Warm wishes are in route to your house as we "speak".

    Love Ya,


Honey, bee sweet and leave us a little note, won't you?
