The PACKAGES are wrapped. . .and ready. . .In WHITE and BLACK and SILVER and GOLD, they are as unconventional as the TABLETOP TREE of left-over Cotton limbs I made for the smaller gifts. . .
You could easily make a 'stick tree' yourself. . .Cotton stalks are not necessary. . .A LIMB from any tree would do. . .Gather the ones that are TALL and have SEVERAL BRANCHES on them. . .Stick them in a VASE. . .add ORNAMENTS. . .and you have a UNIQUE Christmas Tree!!!!
Here's a tip I learned making ours. . .Wire on ornaments when necessary. . .or if you have a cat. . .
I wrapped the packages in NEWSPAPER (without the print, of course). . .and tied with a mix of HEMP STRING and CURLY RIBBON. . .The MEDALLIONS were a banner that I cut apart. . .I also added some SNOWFLAKE ORNAMENTS for bows. . .No commercial bows for us! . .Remember. . .I'm decorating outside-the-box. . .I like this MIX OF FORMAL AND FARMHOUSE. . .
The little SANTA PILLOW goes back twenty years. . .I never tire of it, though. . .Reminds me of all the secrets I kept from Santa while growing up. . .and that makes me laugh. . .
Everything fits well together. . .don't you think?
Hopefully we'll have some sunshine today so I can photograph the rest of the house for you. . .
It's been cloudy for days. . .dark. . .and rain all day yesterday. . .
My old camera doesn't do well when it's dark outdoors. . .
I have the bath, the kitchen, and the keeping room to photograph and share. . .
Rooms that reflect the common theme I have going on for this Christmas. . .
PLAIN AND SIMPLE. . .GLISTENING . . .FARMHOUSE STYLE. . . .
Oh Dru this is absolutely fabulous. I love love love the tree and your packages are unique and totally beautiful.
Love this post. Swooning over your pics.
This is exactly what my house wants to be when it grows up. Love it!
Properly maintained commercial truck tires aren’t just a matter of safety and fuel economy (although that should be enough reason for any owner/operator or fleet manager); it’s a matter of federal regulation. Bus heavy duty tires
