    The tree in my house has some very special memories. Every ornament was created by my students, both young and old, that I have taught & cared for over the last 27 yearsof teaching, including my own children. Each one is a story unto itself, especially those made by my students in prison.

    I decorate our tree with a mixture of ornaments we have collected from our travels, special events and happenings, along side large mercury glass balls and gold glitter balls. Topped with a rustic red star and cascading burlap ribbon! This mercury glass tree would be a PERFECT addition to my holiday decor!

    Ornaments that my kids made more than 20 years ago. Each one has meaning and it's fun to re live each year. They always help decorate our tree even though they don't live at home.
