For those of you who might be wondering why there is a red and white ribbon trailing down my tree let me explain. The ribbon is actually a pennant, it is flown on US Navy ships when they are returning to their homeport from a cruise. That particular pennant flew on my husband's ship many years ago when he was returning from sea - lots of good memories for our family surrounding pennants just like this one.
Hand blown glass ball in one of my favorite colors, Scarlet red. I have a lovely collection of these hand blown glass balls on our tree in cobalt blue or the hard to find reds. It sort of glows in the tree lights.
At the top of our tree is our traditional tree topper made from yellow ribbons, a US Flag and a gold star - all these items are from a wreath I made and displayed in our home when my husband was deployed overseas in support of the Navy's mission in Operation Desert Storm/Enduring Freedom and several other deployments. It would not be Christmas in our home without these dear-to-us decorations.
My little Pooh Bear, I designed and hand sewed this little guy out of wool felt scraps.
54 years young! My Mother beaded and made this stocking for me when I was born. It has seen a lot of Christmases in it's life. Seems most of my most favorite presents have been hidden in this stocking.
In case you are wondering I am actually weaving, this is my current project on the Glimarka. This table runner is woven with a nice Jaggerspun wool as the weft, the color is a dark burgundy that doesn't seem to photograph well. Love this pattern of Roses.
Hope your holidays are enjoyable.
