I love Christmas trees! From the teeny tiny ones to the tallest you can fit in your house. I wanted an 8 ft. tall tree. But you get above 7.5 feet and the price goes sky high! Way above the treetops! So I settled for a 7.5 ft. tree and I like it just fine. Can’t say I wouldn’t jump at the chance to get a taller one though! Our ceilings are about 8 ft 8in – I’d take and 8ft 6in tree if I could afford it. We had a real tree a couple years ago and I loved it but by Christmas it really didn’t look very nice – it had dried so much it really shrunk up and the branches were droopy and withered looking. So faux it was this year! Last year I had a small potted tree that I stuck in an urn.
I made the no-sew ruffled tree skirt using this tutorial.
I was happy with the way the little table inside the front door turned out. And I left Emma’s boots there for the photo because I thought they looked kind of cute!
Fresh holly is really fun to use at Christmastime. Just don’t forget to use gloves to remove it once the holiday are over – this stuff dries hard and prickly!
The little shelves on either side of the dining room nook always get something a little different each year and I love each look I’ve ever done. This year I used this little metal and gemstone tiara that I bought from Decor Steals. And the little paper lady is an ornament from Jo-Ann Fabrics several years ago.
Tomorrow is my Open House sale and I’m all ready! Need to get a few hours sleep now and then set up the last couple things and get some food and drinks going! Thanks to a couple of friends who are bringing snacks and a hot chocolate bar!
Have a wonderful weekend.
