Latest ever, just 5 days before Christmas! What a difference it makes to have the tree. Our ornaments: oyster shells, of course - what's a Chesapeake Bay tree without oyster shells? I've sprayed most of them with gold paint. Then sand dollars, all natural save the ribbon trim. Red apples, for my New York state of mind. Crosses and paper cutouts from Denmark. Santa on the Eiffel Tower and Santa on the Tower of Pisa, for fun and memories of many trips. And lots of musician-angels, for the season.
