Theme trees are a great excuse to collect more ornaments. That is SO the case for my "space" tree.
I came up with the idea for a space tree a few years ago when Hallmark put out a series of collectible ornaments commemorating certain events in NASA history.
MrPeachez and I were young kids when Neil Armstrong stepped onto the moon and MrPeachez still enjoys his Tang to this day.
It's just coincidence that we live next door to NASA Langley.
Every year I try to add one new space/NASA related ornament to this tree.
This year I added a spun cotton ornament by Vintage By Crystal.
Can you spot him there riding on his little rocket?
I've got stars, stars and stripes, astronauts and cosmonauts. One of my most special vintage ornaments is on this tree. It's Italian and it's the Man on the Moon. See him there on the left. I found him at an estate sale in New Jersey. I must say I sure did find a lot of treasures during my time spent living near the Jersey shore.
