During Christmas a long time ago, my mother took me to eat at Luchow's, an old world German restaurant in New York City. (The restaurant has since been demolished.) Their tree was magnificent, reaching to the ceiling loaded with hand blown glass ornaments. Ever since I've collected ornaments, primarily Santa ornaments, in hopes of re-creating Luchow's Christmas tree. I had two large boxes filled with ornaments, including a few Christopher Radko's from his earlier collections. When DogMan got the dogs, I stopped having a tree. Our home is small and the dogs have TAILS which WAG a LOT. Instead of spending the holidays in a hypertensive state, I decided to decorate without a tree, and I always try to add a few ornaments. Sometimes I garnish a doorway, sometimes a window; this year I decorated the mantel.
