Hello everyone I took a little break during the Thanksgiving Holiday but I’m back to work and decorating for Christmas.
I decided to get a new smaller tree this year so I went to Wal Mart and bought a white tree about six foot in height, with lights, for only $39!
On Black Friday I waited until after lunch (thinking I would miss the crowds Ha) and met up with my friend, Penny, at Hobby Lobby. I wanted a pink, silver, and white tree so we proceeded to look for silver and pink ornaments, ribbon, and other trimmings.
Here are some of the decorations we found, some I purchased at the end of season sales last year, and a couple I picked up at Wal Mart.
Mercury glass spindle thingy
A butterfly brooch would be nice
Of course we have to have a handbag
Every girly girl needs a ribbon
A pretty cross necklace wouldn’t hurt
Some angelic music
Of course you’ve gotten all dressed up so there must be dancing
A little white haired man bearing gifts is always nice
And for good luck…
A little elf mouse! I do not know if this is from the German side of my family, the French side, or if somewhere along the way someone just made it up, but we always had a mouse on the tree for good luck. Anyone else ever heard of this tradition?
Next I used about four rolls of silvery ribbon to drape down the tree and to make a large bow topper. (Please ignore 1980’s wall paper border and painted paneling lol)
And finally to finish off our girly tree what else but a pink tutu!
Unfortunately I have not done any shopping for gifts yet but I did have this pretty Paris box that seem just perfect until I get a few gifts all wrapped up and under the tree.
I’m not through with my tree it still needs some more color and I will continue to add to it over the next few days.
After looking at this pictures I can see some areas that need tweaking. Oh, well right now I am painting and will share a finished piece of furniture tomorrow.
Hope you enjoyed my girly tree until next time happy decorating.
I'm sharing with these lovely ladies parties.
