Come visit with me as I stitch and craft my way from one Christmas to the next - I like to have Christmas projects close by me all year. I have a particular fondness for Santas and Angels. If you have the time, leave a comment so I know you've visited.

My Angel Room

Here's my Angel tree. It's another dowelling tree, slightly smaller than the Santa tree. This one is about 5 ft tall. The Santa one is 6 ft tall. My dowelling trees are home-made. Just a length of 2" square wood with a series of holes drilled through the sides. Each hole takes a single length of dowelling that forms the two side branches. Then near each side branch there's a hole drilled in the front of the wood frame to take a shorter piece of dowel for the branch that comes out the front. It has a hook on the back positioned so it hangs at the right height on a picture hook that was already on the wall. After Christmas the dowelling branches come out for easy storage.

The pic's not a good one - I'll try to take a better one tomorrow when there's some natural light. But if you click on it and get the large version you'll get a clearer view. I love my dowelling trees because you can really see all the different items. There are almost 200 angels on my tree this year.

The same group of angels as in the top pic, but on this pic you can also see the Angel of Love on the wall.
