A Miniature Christmas Tree

Glass Christmas Tree from Venice

I’m popping in to wish all of you a Merry Christmas today!

It’s Christmas Eve and we celebrate Christmas today around here. My tiny Christmas tree is out, a gift from the glass blowing island outside of Venice this autumn. But even though it’s a tiny tree the celebration is not tiny, nor is my heart. As I woke up alone this morning, no husband and no kids, I was thinking about all the lonely people out there. We’re a big bunch and we’re looking for each other. But on the way there is hugs to give, family to spend time with and love to share if and when we can. I have a great family that I get to spend the holiday with, but not all are so lucky… I’m sending out lots of metta love today, from my heart to yours! From my family to you, because even though we all feel lonely sometimes and there are lots of trouble in the world – I believe we’ve gotta stay hopeful and inspired – especially today.

Here’s to a merry holiday – to Everyone!

    Merry Christmas to you, Hanna…from northeast Ohio…where I’m so happy that so far it looks like a green Christmas for us. I’m so not a fan of snow!

    I adore your little tree. We don’t have a tree this year because we have 3 kittens we rescued about a year ago that climb the curtains…so I know the tree would be destroyed. Oh well…maybe next year.

    Merry & Happy…enjoy!

    Merry Merry from New Zealand. Wishing you happy days and a creative joy in 2015

  10. Christmas is or has been wonderful here in NZ with wonderful sunny days on the beach and children sleeping outside in the garden in a tent . . . something memories are made of.

    And your tree! I have one too! I bought it on the island of Murano just out from Venice . . . I’ll put a photo on Facebook so you can compare, but I think the ornaments are identical!

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from California . . . love your little glass tree and optimistic spirit. Your creativity inspires me always . . .
    I have been alone and lonesome and I have felt lonesome surrounded by people. I think I find myself feeling a little lonesome every Christmas . . . not sure why
    Your post reminded me of this quote . . .
    “If you make friends with yourself you will never be alone.”
    – Maxwell Maltz
    Have a wonderful day!

    While in Venice a couple of years ago, my best friend bought me the same tree only on clear glass. It broke into several pieces this year & I was heartbroken.
    I searched for it online & came across your blog.
    Thank you for loving this miniature tree as much as I did♡
    I was looking for the name of the store where it was bought so I can replace it.
    Thank you for highlighting my Christmas tree♡♡♡♡
