The Twelve Trees of Christmas: Day 3

On the 3rd day of Christmas the Tree Fairy gave to me, a beautiful gold Lenox tree. . .

So, this tree is my first tree ever. It started 13 years ago when I started making the ornaments for it. . .

This tree has evolved over the years I have added ribbon and garland in most recent years.

Here are the snowflakes that I started making 13 years ago with the help of my Maw Maw that past away in October. She used to make things out of beads as a hobby and so I showed and interest in learning to make these and she helped me get started. When I was done I had made 50 of these for my first tree. Some people might think they are cheesy, but I love them and they have a special place in my heart.

Every year I add a dated Lenox snowflake to my tree. I think this is one of my favorite trees! I really enjoy it every year. We put it in our living room.

How could something that your maw maw made for you (who is now in heaven) be cheesy!?

I think you're kids will be fighting over who gets this tree one day.

I really like this tree. The colors are very pretty.

I like the fact you made 50 snowflakes. That was work! But well worth it!
