We've been needing to get a new Christmas tree for quite a while. Our last one was a "freebie" that I found by the side of the road. It was a tall skinny tree that was all tied up in it's box and looking for someone to take it home.
I made it last for about 4 years and even gave it an upscale, last year, but the needles kept falling off!
Well we, now, have a very snowy tree that's all trimmed in white and is pretty as can be.
It's a CHEAP $30 tree that came from Walmart.
I played with the branches giving them more realistic twists and downward turns.
One really big tip to not having your tree scream FAKE is to hide the skinny trunk with a wrap, in a crate or in a tub....just hide it!!!
The branches are very heavily coated with snow and it is almost completely non-shedding!
This is the first time that I've used all white decorations.
I love it...it's exactly the look that I was after.
A, four paneled, ceiling tile is accented with a handmade NOEL chalkboard tag banner and a marabou boa.
A snowy owl that sits next to my vintage sled.
My sock snowman and pretty white lantern are surrounded by another fluffy white boa.
Honey says the polar bears are his favorites.
The, vintage, child's suitcase has been featured for many holiday occassions.
Cards from Christmas & cards from Valentine's day make delightful displays inside.
This vignette inside our "clock" is another way to enjoy some pretty cards.
Our tv is flanked with a Holiday touch on each side.
A cherished gift hangs from the mirror with glam. <3
My shabby, no sew, lampshade cover even got all dressed up with a few temporary pins.
There's no more mirror behind the couch....just a whole new look with my upscaled shelf and rustic wood sign.
Mom's, porcelain, gilded pitcher is my favorite here.
Too cute...that's all I have to say for this!
Even the, slightly rusty, Tonka truck got a touch of "fab"
Gold, shabby painted, bottles and my, sweet, elegant angel are centered in the room.
Living room looks with little ideas are done...but the kitchen is next and now I'm off to work on writing the post!
Other Christmas posts you may have missed this year.
Love, Hugs and Kisses,
and Gucci, too!
