My First Christmas (tree)

I got my first tree as an adult this year!  We had zero ornaments to start out with and I really wanted as many handmade ornaments as possible. 

I have been saving vintage wooden thread spools since I was little, so I painted the empty ones with acrylic paint and hung them on the tree.



We also got a little crazy with sequins and styrofoam...




...and I've only just begun playing with clear plastic ornaments and "stained glass" paint...


I have to be honest and say that my absolute favorite ornaments are the ones that came on the tree:


And the ultimate Goodwill score - five sets of these for two dollars!



I am addicted to the cross filter setting on my camera.
