dreaming of a white Christmas...

And so it is, for the first time,
contrary to what I ever thought I would do...
I unveil a white tree.

antique ornaments
in silver, gold, pale shades of green & blue
vintage postcards
old upholstery webbing as a garland
even a house tucked in the branches
And under the tree...sweet white.

(and, this morning, a sprinkle of snow greeted us)

Are you trying something new in your holiday decorating?

Your white tree is fabulous.

I AM doing something different this year, I'm not decorating at all. It's my one-year "Get Out of Christmas Rituals Free" card. But that just makes me sound like a curmudgeon. It is far more entertaining to hear about the people that are truly embracing their holiday, so I will just be quiet now.

I too decided not to decorate this year. I just want to relish the peace and quiet. I told my hubby that the money we saved on buying a tree would go to Heifer Project. But his sad face prompted me into action. We are going to tramp through the woods and find a Charlie Brown tree. I know it won't hold many ornaments but that's OK. There will still be a tree with its fresh scent to warm our holidays. won't cost any money...I like that even better.

LOVE the white tree and the little things tucked in here and there. So many of the items remind me of my childhood and that gives me a warm feeling. Thank you!!

You have such a wonderful knack for putting things together that cheer people's souls. Such a nice gift.

Have a great day and enjoy our snow cover.

So...for any folks at the Autumn Barn Sale -- you might recognize this as the Halloween tree -- I found it in a free bin this summer at a Thrift Sale.

Last year my mantle was all about silver, mercury look glass and bling. This year much more low key and nostolgic. My mantle holds a display of old toys gathered thru the year here and there. A chalk board with counting beads, sock monkey, Ann & Andy, teddy bear, building blocks, toy truck and the likes. And yes I remember your Halloween tree and like it just as much if not more done up for Christmas.
