Trim the Tree Thursday - Hallmark Mini Ornaments

For the past two or three Christmases I placed my collection of tiny angel ornaments by Hallmark on a tiny tree. The tree is just 12 inches tall and works just well for the tiny ornaments. Vintage glass balls from thrift and antique stores fill out the branches.

Here is a close-up of the ornaments.

The tree is set in a square holiday tin. In front is the Hallmank Merry Miniature nativity, which is in five pieces – Mary and Joseph together, Jesus in his manger crib, and three separate Wee Three Kings.

Another 12-inch tree holds nativity ornaments. A pierced gold star tops the tree.
Note the tiny nativities. Vintage glass balls fill out the lighted branches

Under the tree is a small stained glass nativity scene
