Our 2015 Chinese New Year tree

If you've followed me for awhile, you know that we have a year-round decorative tree that receives multiple makeovers every other month (including some made-up holidays).
Now that my vintage Christmas ornaments are finally all packed up, Josie and I spent some time over the weekend working on her special tree. 
Her tree is now featuring an assortment of decorations celebrating the approaching Chinese New Year which begins February 8th.
I've said this each year, but of all the trees that I display in the sunroom throughout the year, I think the CNY tree is my favorite.
Someday Josie might not be as eager to help decorate her special tree, but I'm glad she enjoys celebrating her heritage.
 Happy Year of the Monkey!
