Time to Decorate The Tree...

Time to decorate the tree? It's not December!

Decorating the Eeaster Tree is a tradition in my family for almost 50 years. In 1973, we were living in Chattanooga and I was selling my Mini Easter Trees at a local art and craft shop. From their connection, I was featured in a full page story in the local Chattanooga Free Press newspaper.

This year, my granddaughter Elise helped me decorate the tree, something she has been waiting to do for almost three weeks.

A couple of the eggs on the tree are 50 years old. Most of the ones from the 1973 tree have broken through several moves. Even though I cherish the old ones, I always enjoy making new ones each year.
This year I have 6 real quail eggs that I have glittered and decorated. They are listed in my etsy Shop:
