I grew up with a very creative Mother.
She handmade a good majority our clothes.
She could see something in a used store
and it beautifully became something new.
Growing up, we had creative Christmas Trees.
One year we had a tree made from Pampas Grass plumes
(white with red ball ornaments-it was gorgeous!)
Another year we had a tree made from white Kleenex.
(chicken wire cone stuffed with tissues and the same red balls)
While she and my Dad lived in the Philippines
she acquired a Stick Christmas Tree.
The Tree is put together with sticks.
which have been individually hand painted.
The whole thing weighs a ton!
She decorated it with gold and white ornaments.
I inherited it when my Dad passed away last January.
Miss you Mom and Dad!
