Fresh pale pink carnations decorate a Christmas tree at Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens, the house/museum of Marjorie Merriweather Post, Washington, DC.  Post was one of the wealthiest women in the United States in her day. She collected French and Russian art and left her Washington, DC, estate and art collection as a museum.

Christmas Trees Around the World

Christmas Birds

My sister Cecilia’s Christmas tree is entirely decorated with birds, most of them glass ornaments. When I visit her for the holidays, I love helping to unwrap the beautiful decorations and put them on the tree under the watchful eye of her dolls. I missed out on decorating this year because I will be spending the holidays in North Pole, Alaska,near Fairbanks. No question I will have a white Christmas.
