Some Christmas

Allyson at Fat Cat Quilts is having a week of Christmas to get the decorating started so since I got some of my decorations out I thought I'd join in. First up is one of my trees (I put up a few of them). This is the one I put all my family ornaments on.

This year I thought it needed some Christmas bling so here's what I did.

I bought a big bow, Walmart $2.50, and some berry springs, Joanne Fabric $0.39 each and dolled up the top. I saw this idea on Heather Bailey's blog last year. I'm glad I even remembered where I saw it! I'm not creative enough to come up with these ideas on my own so I need to steal, I mean borrow from others.

Then I bought about 42 of these big red snowflakes at Target, 6 for $2. I love them! What I like best is that the tree looks all sparkly in the daytime too. So that's a start for me. Haven't had much time to do all of the decorating but I'll post some others as they make an appearance. It sure felt wintery today with cold temperatures. Now all we need is a little snow. But just a little please.


  1. Just beautiful! I love that idea too. I think I would have borrowed it too.

  2. How beautiful! Love it. I feel very Christmas-y. Wish you well with your hopes for just a little dusting of snow.

  3. What a beauty - and such a great way to add a fresh touch to your old tradition *s*

  4. Wonderful Christmas tree. The red ribbon makes it perfect. I'm just not sure if it is real or artificial. I always hesitate on the beginning of December whether to have artificial or real tree. You don't need to take care for the artificial and you can use it year by year. However, the real Christmas tree has much better atmosphere. But regarding costs I'm going to probably prefer artificial one.

    Have a nice day,

  5. Very lovely tree! Mine is always a mishmash of everything. I would do well to emulate you!

  6. Your tree looks so pretty. I hope to get mine this evening :)

    btw...your DH's house is gorgeous!

  7. So beautiful and festive!! Great idea to spruce up the look as well.

  8. Your tree and all its bling looks great. I especially love the bow and red berries on top!

  9. Everything looks just gorgeous! Thank you so much for your encouraging comment yesterday, it was really appreciated.


I pray that risen from the dead,
In glory I will stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
