Cookie Cutters and Snowflakes

It's the most wonderful time of the year!  One of my favorite ways to spend the evening is going for a slow drive to look at Christmas lights!  Our little Christmas tree is placed at our front window so its lights can wink at our neighbors.  I'd like to share it with you, too!



Last year, the lights on our pre-lit trees fizzled!  Only half the lights were working on our larger tree and not a single one would blink on the smaller tree.  I used them anyway last year, but with no lights, they were a little disappointing for me.

This year, I wanted something simple for our tree.  It's a nice table top size, pre-lit with clear lights.  The ornaments are mostly tin cookie cutters and crocheted snowflakes, a few made by my mother. Silver and white balls are tucked here and there, too.


We still have one featuring our Grandson's First Christmas!  ;-)  That one always makes me smile.  Isn't he a cutie pie?!  ;-)  The cookie cutters are pretty big.  There's one in the shape of our home state, Arkansas.


We also have a Razorback cookie cutter, the University of Arkansas mascot!


A simple white poinsettia has been placed at the top.


Merry Christmas!

What are your favorite things about this time of year?

  2. I love the cookie cutters. I actually have a few on my tree too.
    Sometimes simple can be the prettiest.
