A Mousey Tree

One of my favorite Christmas traditions is decorating the Christmas tree.  And now I get to add to that tradition by sharing my tree with you each year!  Originally when I started collecting ornaments I intended to have a mouse themed tree.  (For some reason, a glass or plastic mouse on a box of candy, an ice cream soda, or a stack of postage stamps just thrills my soul!) 
But if you check out my former tree posts, you’ll notice that other ornaments have made their way onto the tree each year.  But not this time! When I decorated the tree over the weekend, I included nothing but mice ornaments!
These little guys, combined with some brightly colored rainbow garland, colored lights, picks, and a brand new multicolored star topper, make for a very fun and festive tree!  

Each year I like to share some of my favorite ornaments:

I just love this “World’s Greast Crafter” ornament, featuring a mouse and his craft supplies!

These teapot mice are just adorable.  The teabags read: “You and me – the perfect blend,” and “Heart to heart and Hand to friend.”

This mousey sits on top of what’s suppose to be a jar of layered cookie ingredients.

This “Christmas Together” ornament features a mousey couple sip an icecream soda with two straws.

This is actually first time to use this Hallmark mouse from 2001.  I don’t know why.  You know I love cookies! And he’s such a cutie!

Rebel loves to sit under the tree.  I’ll give you three guesses why!

This has got to be one of my favorite Dixie Belle pictures!  She loves sleeping under the covers, and the Christmas tree skirt makes for a great hiding place!

I’m linking this post up to my weekly linky parties and the Christmas Tree Party at Thrifty Decor Chick.
