A beautifully illustrated look at Christmas ornaments and the memories they hold on our treesFirst 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."
