Blog about Christmas decorations that are special to you.
I'm a Christmas minimalist. I do have boxes of family heirloom ornaments in the attic for the rare years when we get a Christmas tree.
Most years, I have a box on a high shelf that contains certain precious decorations. I grab the box and decorate.
I decorate the Norfolk pine in the living room with ornaments I bought at Tuttle's my first Christmas in NH. (I've had the pine since then too - I brought it with me from home to my very empty apartment!)
I found this wooden pine at the Collector's Eye in Stratham the first year we didn't decorate a big tree.
The wooden carved Santa was made by a carver and painter in Newfoundland. I brought it home, along with sock yarn, as a souvenir of our trip there in 2004.

Isn't the tiny tree precious? It's about 1 inch tall.
Looking over the angel's shoulder, you can see she's singing Stille Nacht (Silent Night).
