Up until now I only did three trees every year but...a friend of mine convinced me to get a silver tinsel "feather tree" from Gumps--after it went on sale of course--and now I'm doing four with villages! These little houses are addicting!

Anyway, I decided that this would be a French themed Marie Antoinette type tree and set about making ornaments for it all year. The centerpiece of this putz however, is a cathedral putz--or Notre Maria as we're calling it--created by Howard Lamey of littleglitterhouses.com

It's very large as you can see--with an independent LED lighting source--and was worth every penny. I just hope to take better pictures soon.

Maria, that's so beautiful! Your ornaments are so pretty! And, yes, you are so right! These little houses are very addicting.

Thank you so much. It's much shinier than this but I can't get the lighting right with or without the color wheel. And yes indeed--putzs are addicting!

A French theme! You can tell someone's a true collector if he or she has the inventory to display by country ....

Antoinette Marie (no kidding)

LOL! Actually I made all the ornaments myself--the church--NOTRE MARIA as everyone calls it--is a Howard Lamey creation--the rest of the stuff I got for a song at flea markets and such--except for the ship!
