Special Moments in time

Pictured in the mosaic photo above is the first tree I put up ...every year ...always.  If I decide not to/can't do anymore decorating for Christmas ...this one little tree still goes up.  I guess I would say that it has become a tradition in our family.

It all started a few years ago when I purchased three of these little trees.  I gave one to each of my grandsons when they were just babies.  I wanted them to have their very own Christmas tree.  I also wanted my grandsons to see this very same tree when they were visiting us at know, seeing something familiar.

I remember when the little guys came tugging at my apron one Christmas with wide eyes and smiles announcing to me that I had the same tree that I had given to them.  I told them the reason why and received even bigger smiles in return.

Special moments in time.

I love how the tree looks so at-home with the mercury glass candle stick holders and lamps.
Tis the season to be jolly ...and bright!

What a wonderful idea, Jan. How do you actually make the mosaic theme.

It's wonderful to have traditions.
