|Dear little Shishmistee|
The decorations are mostly from Ikea and were absurdly cheap. The little red lights were a couple of bucks and operate by 2 AA batteries, so we didn't even need to work around locating near a power point. The star we used on the top is a cool crochet bauble that I butchered a bit with the scissors to stick on the top of the tree. The larger, silver baubles were a gift from my brother who just returned from a trip to Vienna.
We are so pleased with out very first Shishmistee in our Dear Little House! In the next few days I plan to get creative and make a few little decorations for around the house to use up the leftover bits and pieces that wouldn't fit on the tree. It certainly is beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
