Pierre, the holiday cheer octopus

Xmas 2013 Pierre the tree topper

I’d forgotten all about this little guy!

Decorating the tree is a super-fun tradition in my family. All of the kids have their own box of ornaments collected over the years through personal creation, or (most often) from Mom, who has a deep and abiding love of finding neat little things and gifting them to folks.

In addition to our own personal collections of ornaments, the sisters (younger, me, and older) each have an angel topper while younger brother has a nutcracker. None were to be found this year 😦

The tree was left looking a little sad and empty up top, so I decided to make a topper to fill in for the time being, and this was the result. Mom claimed possession of him since she didn’t previously have her own. Only a mother could love such a face, right?!
