A Victorian Christmas Tree

Over the years, I've always enjoyed having our tree decorated by our children with all of their ornaments and special memories of ornaments given to them . . . . . Whitney always putting her hamburger ornament front and center and Chelsey's love of dill pickles and the competitive searches for the pickle on the tree . . . . . but, I also love having a Victorian tree with bows, ribbons, roses and everything Victorian and vintage. 

I've had this magazine pic in my Christmas boxes for years. 
Isn't it fantastic!?

I just love all the beads, ornaments and baby's breath.

Here is our tree this year. 
It is not yet to this level of beauty . . . {I could not find gold beads this year anywhere, did not have any baby's breath on hand, and I had to stretch our pearl beads as our tree is very big}  . . . however, I just love our tree!

 It is covered with . . .

lots of Victorian ornaments  

vintage ornaments

Victorian ladies

 teapots and teacups

an old book page ornament new this year from a friend

and, of course, lots of angels

Merry Christmas to you and your families!

  12. I think your tree has turned out beautifully! You have done a wonderful job on it. That is a really big tree, and I can see how it would take quite a lot of beads to adorn it, not to mention baby's breath! All your ornaments are very pretty, and I love your tea pots and tea cup ones. Thank you so much for sharing them with us for Tea Cup Tuesday.
    Merry Christmas,

  13. I saw what you wrote about your winning treasures. I hope you like them. I love your Christmas tree, it looks like a happy one. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas.
