Hubby and I have cut our own tree for years. Trying to save time this year...It looks better in my house than on the photo... I'm not thrilled with it...it will do for awhile. I haven't had a tree in this spot before...usually in the corner. That is now where the Indian cabinet is. You can see it from the dining room and living room. I always have white lights on mine. I have vintage ornaments, tinsel and faux poinsettia's this year.
These two photos are the swap gifts that I received from Debby at http://cozyblanket.blogspot.com She had a Christmas swap and you could send a decorated cigar box or jar. We both did cigar boxes. I just sent mine to her yesterday. Thank you, Debby for the fun Christmas swap :)
I won this very pretty tea set from Deb at http://debsanestingplace.blogspot.com aka A Fine Feathered Nest. Along with the rose bowls and rose scoop. The tea set is sweet and petite. Thank you, Deb. It's just so darling!
I'll be showing you my mantle and other little Christmas decor after the sale at HQ...I'm also making my Christmas cards. I may get them put together this weekend! I also made a couple easy little gifts and will show them too! Can you say "busy" :)
Hubby and I went to a couple estate sales and I'll show you the treasures that I "bought" later this week too! It was a nice "digger" sale. Lots of linens, vintage greeting cards, hankies, glass ware and MORE!!! I didn't go overboard!!! I have a few Christmas gifts to buy! I do have my Granddaughter all done...except for the few stocking stuffers!
Guess I'll get back to putting together my cards!
