Family Christmas Tree/ Easy & Quick Ornament8:33 PM
We have a "Family" Christmas tree. It's a separate tree, and each year we add one ornament, representing the big event from that year. This will be our 6th Christmas, so right now it's just a mini table top tree with a few ornaments on it. But over the years and decades, it will hopefully hold a lot of memories and special ornaments.
2004: We were married

For this, I had bought a vintage postcard. It was actually a print from a travel pamphlet printed originally in 1884. I just mounted the postcard on cardboard that I had covered with holiday paper.
