Mission Accomplished!

I left home yesterday morning in search of a vintage ceramic Christmas tree for my granddaughter, Tiffany, and after several stops at resale/consignment shops and antique stores, I finally found one.  

The person who made the tree engraved the year on the base - 1974.  I'm glad it's going to Tiffany and John's home where it will continue to illuminate the Spirit of Christmas for many years to come.  Special thanks to those who offered suggestions on where to find one.

Do you have a ceramic Christmas tree?  It will soon be time to get it out.  They make the coziest night lights.

On another subject... John recently got Tiffany a golden retriever puppy they named Oliver, but will call Ollie. I thought you would enjoy seeing Tiffany and Ollie.

The two loves of Tiff's life - John and Ollie! ;-)


  1. I have a tree with 1981 on the base - it was a wedding shower gift and I treasure it :-)

  2. My Grandma had a tree like that. I don't know if my mom still has it or not, but I could see one of my girls enjoying it!

    Cute family and puppy!


  3. My cousin made one of these for Aunt Ida in a ceramics class back in the 1970s.

  4. I made two ceramic trees back in the late 70s when I was taking classes. One of the trees was for my parents and I think a daughter has it - mine comes out every year. My base is different and I glued a couple birds and butterflies in along with the lights.

  5. What a sweet little puppy! That is a very nice tree. I bought one on eBay last year (it's pearlized white) and then, when we cleaned out my mother's house, found another one, much like yours. Very cool find; they'll enjoy it. Happy Thanksgiving Phyllis.

  6. I'm so glad you found the tree for Tiffany! Of all the Christmas decorations I have (and there are way too many!) I never had one of those. But I have seen them and they are especially special if someone you know made it, or if there is a family tradition of using them. What fun for Tiffany to start her own traditions with something that she has associated with Christmas decor for so long. And that's a darling puppy, too, by the way!
