Christmas Tree Ornaments

  Hope your Thanksgiving was full of wonderful time with family and friends.

I have started my Christmas decor and wanted to show you some of my ornaments on my tree for this year.

My tree each year has many angel ornaments that I have collected or were gifted over the years.  Of course front and center is my beautiful angel Hope.  She is dressed in a vintage Christening gown and wears her pretty jeweled crown.


Hope wears my grandmothers angel brooch.  My sweet grandmother lived to be 2 months short of her 100 birthday.  She always had a pretty pin on her sweaters and this angel was one of her favorites.  So happy to have it on my Hope angel.




My Hope sign added into the tree.










Hope looks so pretty at night with the tree all a glow.


Along with my angel ornaments I like to add nature to the tree too.











Pretty chandelier ornaments add some sweet bling to the tree.




This ornament was gifted to me on a package last year from a dear friend.
















































This is just a sampling of all my ornaments I add to my tree each year.  They all have such wonderful memories attached to them.



 Are you getting your Christmas decor going?  Enjoy this beautiful time of year.  May all your lights sparkle and glow when you plug them in!!!!!!  Happy Decorating.
Hugs,
Kris

  1. Dear, dear Kris, you have been such a delightful friend all year, and I always look forward to your posts. Your crisp, white cottage and extraordinary finds make me SMILE!

    Ah......I am enjoying decorating for Christmas this year. I am so grateful that no matter how old I get, that so far, every year I get YOUNGER at heart. Things I've seen before have taken on new dimension and meaning, and whenever I pull out an old decoration, it never ceases to make me happy like a child. Your angel is darling, so perfect and your HOPE sign is perfect for you, for us all. You have demonstrated hope in so many ways to me, and your reward has been 100 fold. May the new year bring you even more love.

    WHITE DECOR - LIVE ON!

  3. Kris, I love all your tree ornaments on your angel / hope tree. Those glass balls with the beads dripping all over the top - crafty idea! And the chandeliers are gorgeous - saw those in TX and wanted a couple, but resisted. All of your angels and hearts really speak to me.
    I've started decorating, and I'm all over the board, flitting from one room to the next, even one vignette to the next without even finishing, like a kid with an attention disorder. Seriously. Then there are the emails full of sales that distract me.....have a great weekend.

  9. So many gorgeous ornaments, especially the angel and all of the shabby chic hand made ones. It makes me want to get out my craft supplies and work away making something beautiful. Thank you for the inspiration! ;o)

  12. All your ornaments are so pretty. However, I am especially inspired by your Angel "HOPE" and hope sign. It is difficult for me to be inspired this year...my dear Mother-in-Love has recently been placed on Hospice. Your inspiration of hope would be a great one for me to feel as if I am contributing to her desire to live till next Christmas...we her children are hoping she will be with us for "this" Christmas. Today is a rainy day...I think I will bring some holiday cheer to our surroundings. Blessings for you and yours dear Kris.

  17. I am calling this your angel tree, you have so many pretty ones!
    I especially like how you personalized it, Kris, with your grandmother's pin.
    I've had a lot of ideas dancing around in my head, but I haven't started any decorating yet.

  22. Kris your tree is decorated with attention to detail you lovingly apply throughout your home. Your angels are darling and make me smile - each are unique. Having your Grandmoms angel brooch displayed is very touching and I have a feeling she truly earned her wings. Memories are very powerful, capable of making our soul rejoice, thank you for this heartfelt share.

  23. I love your Hope angel, Kris! She is beautiful. Love that she wears your grandmother's pin too. What a sweet reminder! I've got my decorations up. Kept it simple this year. It still seems unreal that it's the Christmas season. Not sure how we got here already. :-)

  27. Kris,
    A very Happy Thanksgiving to you, and this tree, wow! Just speechless. Then it occurred to me how much this tree is you, shabby and beautiful, nostalgia like grandma's brooch, glistens like the Chaney crystals, and a true Angel of Hope. It has been quite the year for you and want you to know what a gift you are to us gals, seriously from my appreciative heart. All too often people live their lives online in such a smoke and mirror show and people see through it...Kris when you guys moved I cried and prayed you would find your way and the shabby blog wouldn't disappear forever, then sweet Cooper, the new place I reared up again as prayers have been answered for our sweet gal. You inspire and are the true MVP on never losing Hope! Well I thought I would tell you this as all our hearts are in such thankful thoughts. Also I can only imagine the time and devotion to keep a blog going there are only a few left sadly. Ok enough of my mushy thoughts and feelings lol have a great Sunday Kris

    1. Oh Rachelle you made my heart sing today with your comment. It has been a really rough year and a half for me and my hubby but the support and friendships especially from peeps like you in blogland have kept me hopeful for better things to come. I really needed this today and your comment was such a gift. Thank you sweet friend. Sometimes when we go through rough times on our life journey we are then opened to the real blessings in life. Even with our struggles we have seen so much blessing in our lives too. I miss my old cottage that I loved but this new one is now feeling like home. It has brought us back closer to our family and friends so that is a true blessing. Cooper has added so much joy and love for us. I think he rescued us more than we rescued him. Cooper in remission of his cancer gives us hope that life even in the sadest and hardest times can bring such beautiful blessings. Thank you for all your mushy thoughts today I hugged and embraced them all. Happy Sunday right back at you. Enjoy the new week as we slide on down to the big day.
      Hugs,
      Prayers,
      Much love,
      Appreciation,
      Kris

  38. What a wonderful way to honor your Grandmother's memory - so pretty! You have a gorgeous collection of ornaments and my vintage ornament tree needs some chandeliers. Trees filled with cherished, handmade, vintage ornaments tell such a beautiful story, don't they!

  39. Your tree reflects your decorating style beautifully, Kris! The angels have found a perfect nesting spot for the season and the chandelier ornaments are adorable!

    I think of you whenever I decorate my open kitchen shelving for the seasons. Thank you again for your inspiration!

  40. Kris,
    Your angel tree is so beautiful and really reflects who you are! I'm always so thrilled when I see a post from you! You inspire us in your decorating and Terry with his tool belt( I think you could pimp him out ). LOL! Thank you for sharing the hi lights and lowlights of life, we've never met but you share your heart with us and I so appreciate your kindness. Y'all inspire with your decorating and creativity talents. Please continue to share as I'm always eager to learn as we share our love of neutral decor. My Mom passed away on Christmas night last year, she had a crystal tree and would have loved your tree!
    Warm regards and thanks,
    Julie

    1. Julie thank you for your sweet comment left today. I appreciate all of you that follow me and my decor crazy lol! Yep I told Terry if he does not find a job soon I may have to put him and his tool belt out on the corner lol! I am sorry about your mom passing last Christmas. It is so hard to lose a loved one and especially hard on the holiday. I am sorry for your loss. Sounds like you have wonderful memories of your mom. Hold dear to those.
      Hugs and Happy Decorating.

    Happy week Kris.

  43. Hi Kris,

    Your ornaments are so pretty. Did you make some of them? I love your gorgeous tree and your sweet angel Hope. How precious she is. We don't have our tree up yet but I've been snatching time here and there to get the decorations up. I Iove your advent chalkboard and I want to try your cookie recipe. All your girl friends are going to have such fun. I'm envious. Aren't you sweet to host? I hope you have a special time. Have a wonderful weekend and thank you for sharing your special tree.
