After Christmas four or five years ago I found my 5 foot tree at Target for about $5. How could I resist? The tradition of bringing back a toy tree like the one I had growing up was now inevitable. I now had the smaller, skinny tree. I had my childhood ornaments. I had the fun ornaments I had been given throughout the years and the ornaments I had for my kids. The toy tree was back!
Here are a few of the ornaments I have on the tree.
This other picture is an example of random ornaments that go on the tree. Anything that doesn't fit with the "formal" blue, silver and purple tree gets its place on the toy tree.
