Finished the living room tree except for placing the star. Taking so long it seems.
I purchased this tree with out the lights as I prefer to put them on myself. I keep finding ornaments to place but I think I will stop now.
This ribbon was purchased when I visited my daughter in Ballard West Virginia at a little antique and novelties store. It is a huge roll for $2.50. I can't imagine what it would cost if I had to purchase at a regular shop here.
My little choral ladies that I cut from wood ages ago and painted.

One wish wasn't enough for Genevieve. Opa was handing out coins for their wishes.
