Early Christmas for a Special Friend

My friend Mimi is coming up from Fairhope today to visit with me for the week. We have been friends for over 30 years and she is very special to me. She is very cool and uniquely creative, so I always want to give her something unusual. I wanted to do a combination "welcome house guest" and early Christmas present.

I found a vintage-looking cake plate and this tiny glass Christmas tree to give her. I sat the tree on the plate and covered it with "snow", and sat pretty Christmas candy on it. I tied it with a ribbon and used a tag with a Christmas sticker on it.

She hasn't seen it yet. I hope she likes it.

Did the tree come with ornaments?

Yes. I got it, complete with ornaments, at the St Vincent's gift shop.
