Tree skirt


A few years ago, when I was first married, my grandmother presented me with this lovely tree skirt she had made herself. She's really an amazing seamstress, and her handmade gifts are always very appreciated. This year is the first time we've had a full-sized tree, and I'm happy to finally be using the tree skirt!

  8. What a beautiful tree skirt. I'm so glad for you that you get to use it this year.
    I love your new mantel, and your nativity scene. So pretty.

    FOr Christmas dinner, we usually just have lots of finger foods. We like to just nibble and graze throughout the day.
