Christmas Bulbs 8"x8" oil on canvas

We got our tree up and put a few ornaments on it last night- we have a lot more to go!
Its always fun and magical to pull out the old favorite ornaments . My mom and Al's mom and gave us some sweet homemade ones we cherish, as well as these vintage bulbs. The kindergarten pictures of my girls mounted on metal juice can tops always bring me to tears. We let our oldest don the tree with the golden glittery angel she made as a child.  It is tradition that marks the time and brings us together.
Tomorrow is a big day for me- it is my 100th post and to celebrate I am doing a GIVEAWAY!
If you email me  by Wednesday, Dec 9, by 9 PM- I will put your names in a flowerpot and do a drawing. I will send the winner a replica of the ornament I made for the White House Christmas tree last year.
Good luck and Happy Holidays- whatever it is you celebrate- CELEBRATE!

Here are the two sides of the ornament- from photos of the ball. I replicated it as a flat two sided ornament.
