A beautifully illustrated look at Christmas ornaments and the memories they hold on our trees First highlighted in the New York Times , Bonnie Mackay's annual Christmas tree showcases a lifetime collecting almost 3,000 ornaments. Now, through beautiful photography and illuminating vignettes, Tree of Treasures shares the heartfelt stories behind a hundred of those cherished possessions, whether it's the story of a family member, like Mackay's grandfather, a well-known vaudeville performer; long-held relationships with friends and colleagues in the international community of Christmas crafts makers; a memory of a beloved pet; and much more. From serene lace angels and vintage Santas, to exquisite glass-blown spheres and small silk purses, Tree of Treasures showcases ornaments both beautiful and well-loved, illuminating how ornaments, as we unpack and hang them each holiday season, tell the story of our lives.
