O Christmas Tree
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here. Saturday I was able to finally get the main tree up. I have been so busy sewing that I haven't had time to even think of decorations. I still have more to do this week before Taylor gets home from college.
I have a new white tree this year. It was a great deal on Cyber Monday. I was so happy to find one that was unlit. I weaved 500 lights onto this tree. I love sitting in the room with the lights out. I am always thrilled to add the dancing ladies and gentlemen garland to the tree. It was made by my Mom years ago with a Martha Stewart pattern featured in her magazine. It always draws a lot of attention.
The kitchen tree is up in all its dessert finery. It goes rather nicely with my Great Granny Along quilt. It makes the kitchen so festive.
I had so much fun making the cupcake liner garland last year. If I could squeeze more ornaments on this tree, I certainly would. There are so many cute dessert ornaments in the stores. I think my little tree has all it can hold, well maybe a couple more…
Have a good start to your week!

Renee, this tree is just luscious! I remember that garland from MS and love it. I never made it as it doesn't go with my decorations. I think it works perfectly with yours.ReplyDelete
I hope you and your family have a truly merry Christmas.

Your tree looks lovely Renee. The white is very different.ReplyDelete
They are both lovely. Well done.ReplyDelete
Both trees are so sweet, but I love that one in the kitchen with the quilt and the cupcake-liner garland!ReplyDelete
Your trees are both so beautiful Renee. The little cupcake liner garland is such a sweet touch to your dessert tree. I love it.ReplyDelete
Love your trees! The white has invoked some happy memories for me as we had a pretty white tree during my growing up years in S.Africa. I loved it as it was always just that wee bit unique.ReplyDelete
Have a happy day
oh my word! Look at the cupcake garland!! How PERFECT!ReplyDelete
