This year, in loving memory of my bestest ever aunty who died 2 months ago, a butterfly decoration, one of which I bought for myself, mum and sis. By the side of it, a gorgeous red bauble, with a gingham star on it, for our little prawn who didn't make it after 12 weeks back in may, and by the side of that, a train for my best friend's dad, who died last month. It's been one of those years I'll be glad to see behind me! - All over the rest of it however, all manner of gaudy home made / school / nursery made decorations from DS and DD!!

A toilet roll angel made by DD1 & me this year, we are very proud of her in all her wonky eyed glory smile Pic on profile.

An owl. Tree decoration, that is, not a real one. It's made out of balsa wood and jutey-type fabric I think.

So, not that Christmassy then hmm

A paper angel made by DD1 last year (age 4). It's very roughly coloured in (mostly white paper) and looks a bit squashed after being in a box for a year but it's lovely (proud mum).
Before that we had the flying polar bear. It's basically a small bauble shaped like a white sparkly polar bear in the middle of a leap. I used to hang it right at the top because I didn't have a specific tree top decoration.

Jack Frost made last year by DS from a teasel, pipe cleaners and foil

A crown from Windsor Castle!

Ok, it was bought in the shop at Windsor Castle and made of plastic, but it still is rather posh-looking.

A star that flashes all different colours. It's truly hideous. I bought it to wind dp up because he kept putting off going tree shopping until I had to do it all on the bloody bus.

A Winnie the Pooh stuffed animal dressed as an angel. Cute? Yes. Tacky? Yes. Bit blasphemous? Probably! But I love him smile

(Outs self completely as I've had him for years and he takes pride of place)

A big, purple Rudolph with wings, gloved paws and a sequin covered heart.

Sounds ridiculous-but lovely really

A gold bow.

Sugar plum fairy - small and round and squishy.

MrsHoarder Tue 11-Dec-12 21:22:21

The lights run up to the top. No ornament there as yet, thinking I might get/make one for the Christmas hamper

Nothing.

I have never found anything I liked, so it's just a twig.

Is that odd?

A star

An angel in like a hessian sack material. Poor thing - she wanted white silky glamour. With tinsel and lights up her bottom.

Fairy (made out of one of dd1's dolls, and called Buttons)

Kahlua4me Tue 11-Dec-12 21:15:01

A ridiculous soft doll/fairy/angel thing in blue! My dh chose it and loves it. Doesn't go with other decorations or the room but hey ho he is happy!

used to be a 'discussion' every year. Then ds slyly hand made a star, so we had a proper tree top ornament and now brooks no arguments. i think dd1 is plotting a beautiful hand made angel for next year to compete...

Usually the cat.

Star? Angel? Something else? What has pride of place on your tree? Pic on profile of our little fella.
