Favorite Christmas Decoration
So far, this ceramic tree is the only Christmas decoration I've set out. My Aunt Kathy made it for me and gave it to me as a Christmas present in 1980. For each Christmas season thereafter, it sat on my dresser, acting as a nightlight. It came with me to college, spreading Christmas cheer during finals. It even graced my credenza at work because I spent more time there than home. I haven't brought it out every year, generally because I'm so busy, I don't do any decorating. But it is my favorite of all my Christmas things. I hope my niece feels the same way about the quilt I'm making for her.
I wanted to get a good picture of it but need to do some research on getting the exposure and settings just right. In the mean time, I had way too much fun messing around with long exposure times!
