Thursday Miss Jenny will be having us study the letter D. My two words are Dreaming and Decorating. I have been decorating so much these last few days that not only do I decorate when I am awake, I find myself doing it in my dreams.
Anyone else do that?
For the past two years we have had a 7 1/2 ft. tree in our family room. Our ceilings are so tall that even though I sat it on top of an antique washtub it just was too small.
Hubby and I bit the bullet and decided to buy a new 9 ft. tree.
It’s a bit hard to tell but it has snow, ice crystals, pinecones, and red berries. PERFECT for my mercury glass bird themed tree. I love it!
It is mainly white with a touch of red and turquoise.
I bought the slim tree because my family room isn’t huge. This pic is with the lights on.
No presents yet, that will change in a hurry.
I pulled a few bird items that I had and stuck in amongst the branches.
I had the nests, but the blue birds are new.
Some of my mercury glass ornaments.
Here are a few other vintage type ornaments.
I have a few of these bell clusters poked in here and there. I love how they hang.
Add some dried limelight hydrangeas,
A couple of birdcages,
A few red cardinals,
A sweet note about a birds nest,
A message for the world to see,
This sign was the only thing my hubby didn’t like about the tree. It is a bit large, but I wired it in, so for this year at least; it’s staying.
And last of all, a star on top.
I love how you see the bare branches of the tree through the window.
Even though my tree isn’t truly vintage, it gives me the feel of an old fashioned Christmas. How I cherish my childhood memories.
I hope you’ll take time today to reflect upon Christmas Past.
