DPP 7: Double Duty with the Blog Hop!

I am pulling double duty on this post. One picture for the blog hop, and one for my Daily December Photo Project. The first (above) is for the Photo Project, mainly because its a much better picture, a billion times more artsy, and I just like it. Our tree in the past few years has been donned with jewel toned decorations. Purples, blues, teals, magentas, you get the idea. But this year, I am going traditional! It involved buying all new ornaments, but with a trip to the General Store in MN, our tree was ready for trimming in all reds, greens, and golds. I have to say, I think it turned out quite nicely.

This one is for this week's Blog Hop. It asked about our favorite ornament, and while I guess technically a tree topper isn't considered an ornament, I am going to count it anyway! We've had it since we first got our tree, and frankly, I don't even remember what the kitty was originally clutching between its elasticed together paws, but now, every Christmas, this kitty cat is holding on for dear life on the top of our tree....and I love it.

Here's some other artsy fartsy pictures of our ornaments this year. I wish I could make a living out of photographing ornaments...any takers?
