Speaking of sugarplums, I thought you'd like a see little slide show. Each year Frannie and I put up a second tree - this one is just for us. It stands only 3 feet tall. We put multi-color lights and gumdrop garland on it. The ornaments are either food related or pink or both. We call it our "Sweet Tree". On with the show!
This year's addition. I found her at an estate sale. In a basement. In a crumpled up bag. She's been returned to her place of honor and is happy in her new home. She's very fragile, but oh, so sweet!
Sometimes you find very nice ornaments where you'd least expect it. The red and white stripe candy ornament came from Walmart a few years back. It is glass and quite lovely.
The clay cupcake ornament came from Frannie's holiday shop at school. It was a Christmas gift. She knows what I like.
