OK, this will be my first decor post on this blog. I haven't done any photography lately since all my time has been eaten up by decorating for Christmas. As soon as that's done I'll have to start working on gifts. I'm a little behind, but it'll work out. It always does.
This is my first fancy tree. I've always wanted to have a themed tree, but then Christmas would come and I'd just decide to put up what I had. I feel a little bit bad about not using all my sentimental ornaments, but only a little. I'm happy with my tree. And it's a new fake tree that I got at the end of Christmas last year for $20! Hooray for clearance!! Oh, and it was pre-lit. Awesomeness! So now I have two trees (the other one was my parent's old one and is kind of falling apart...)
I made a lot of the ornaments on tree, including the topper.
I also made some fabric rosettes from some old linen someone gave me. I glued them to clothespins I aged with Tim Holtz's distressing ink (I love that stuff).
Well that's my tree in a nutshell. I post a full tree image later. I'm still making some glittered chipboard letter banners for it and I may do a couple of more glittered ornaments, too. Oh, my garland for the tree is just some lace I picked up from Jeffrey Allens. I love how it looks on the tree.
OK, I'm also linking to my first ever linky party!! Woohoo! I at least got on board for the final link party of the Holiday Home series. Visit Thrifty Decor Chick to see other Christmas trees on the blogosphere!
