My Assignment from Carlota

The christmas spirit is in the air....I can hear christmas carols everywhere.....Christmas tress lighted and adorned with ornaments....Oh how I love the feeling of joy this season creates.

Haay... at long last I am able to answer my assignment from Carlota. Thank you Carl for inspiring me to put up our christmas tree and adorned it with ornaments. This is very memorable for us because this is our very first christmas tree ever here in our humble abode. It was a good feeling that we tried our best to put it up and make it beautiful in our own way.

Last year we spent christmas in my hubby's family. So we don't have one really that we can call our own. But I experienced hanging the ornaments to the live christmas tree in an Aunt's house. Was having a heart to heart talk with the most respected Aunt in the family, being a new addition to the family, while hanging the ornaments.

The live tree was 8.5ft. tall.

After a year, now we are decorating our little place and putting up our very first tree. Treasuring the every story of how and why we came up with the kind of adornments that we have. And somehow in the future these creations and adornments of ours will create its own history. So to start with:

A red glass christmas ball painted with gold paisley leaf and flower that we both like.

I used our unity candle during our wedding as the center of our mantle piece. We will be lighting this candle on our every anniversary which will be 9 days from now.

Our first Santa Claus. He will be resting under our tree from now on.

The wreath I made. Hubby asked me if he can receive a credit in making this. I told him yeah...but just for nailing it on the wall hehehehe.

The mantlepiece I made with our unity candle at the center.

Our christmas tree standing in the sun room. I wanted it to stand near the fireplace but hubby is afraid it will catch fire coz we have no fireplace screen yet.

That's about it. Hope I do pass with this assignment [wink]. Once again thank you Carlots for giving me this assignment. Merry Christmas!!!
