The 2011 Potentially Beautiful Christmas Tree is finished.
This year’s tree is a similar version of last year with a few new items added. I made those little burlap wreaths last year. My cat loves them and every morning I find at least one in the floor that he has played with during the night.
The colors are silver, white, and a touch of blue.
But I can never leave off a touch of red, so my little cardinal peaks through a branch.
I added my sheet music ornaments that I made this year and some glittery big acorns that I picked up last year on clearance after Christmas. Love them.
In my new house, the ceilings are about 9.5′ and my tree from last year (that I picked up at a yard sale) looked like a dwarf tree when I set it up. To solve that problem, I set it up on a box and covered it all up with a dropcloth “skirt”. Viola! A taller tree! And it makes room for more presents under the tree. Win-win. 🙂
I would love to see all your trees too. Post your pics over on my Facebook page for all of us to see and I will post the favorites here before Christmas. Wow…it’s only 10 days away! I better get shopping.
Oh, by the way. I’m in a Christmas Tree contest to win a visit to my house from Cooper Boone – singer-song writer, chef, psychologist (hottie!).

When he comes over, we will cook together and hopefully I will get him to sing for me. A man who cooks and sings…Swoon. Ok, enough drooling, I’m #44 Gloria F. You can vote every day until December 25th. I would be forever grateful! And maybe I’ll invite you over when he visits. 🙂
