Christmas at the Office

 
This is my little Christmas tree at work.  It sits on the ledge in front of my
 desk where I can see and enjoy it all day long.
 
 
I've had this wire tree for at least twenty years and it has held everything from Easter to Halloween decorations.  But the last few years, it has gone to the office to keep me company there.
 
 
The ornaments have been collected over the last ten years from here and there, and many of them have special friends and memories attached to them.
 
 
I love the ones that look like candy.  This one even has a paper wrapper like 
it was just plucked from a box of chocolates.
 
 
 
Every tree needs a football, especially if you work for The Ohio State University 
and are crazy about your football team.
 
 
It's a compact tree, but holds more ornaments than you would imagine.  It has always been a conversation piece at the office and some employees even have trouble keeping their hands off of the little guys.
 
 
Years ago, before every branch was full, I used to quiz those stopping by my desk to see if they could pick out the newest arrival.
 
 
And here it is with our large office tree in the background.
Between the two trees, we have quite a festive atmosphere to work in.

That's a lovely wire tree! So unusual and versatile. The ornaments you've collected over the years are beautiful and a lot of fun. I especially like the penguin, the basket of flowers and the sweets!

First of all I gotta say "I LOVE your chickens!" and might be stealing your quote:"Happy chickens make a happy me!" Now, what a sweet office tree, love it's simplicity. And shows off a great collection of glass ornaments. I would have to post a hands Off sign! You've made me want to go spruce up my office now! Your blog always keeps me scrolling for more! We are going to try your recipe this Christmas too, I know the Sall's will love a good spicy appetizer like this one.

Awesome.

Sure wish the Bux were going to a championship game. THAT had to be difficult at work. ugh.

My son-in-law works at OSU too, did I ever tell you that?

Merry Christmas and happy new year.

Happy New Year!
