Stars of the Tree

Our Christmas tree is up & is under siege. Both our cat & our toddler are beyond fascinated by the shiny baubles & wooden toys hanging on the lower branches. We are finding our ornaments everywhere: under chairs, in drawers, behind the couch. Fortunately, we put both our dearest & most fragile ornaments up high or deep inside the tree for glimpses of sparkle & depth. Tragedy averted.

The undisputed King of the Tree is our leather lion. And our lucky, plump pig is from a (free!) Wee Wonderfuls pattern (Thank you, Hillary!).

I've said it before & I'll say it again: I love seeing these dear friends again!

Odd note about the lion. I found this noble fellow at the strangest estate sale. That lady had a mind-bogglingly crazy collection of size 6 shoes. An entire bedroom of racks & racks of barely worn high-end shoes in every color & only one style: high-heel pumps. Those shoes & this lion for 50 cents. I left with the lion & a one big, ol' goofy smile.
