Im loving all of the festive posts on decorating and gorgeous Christmas trees. There are a lot of posts to catch up on, but Im gradually getting there and enjoying them all. Thank you to all of you, my caring and generous followers and readers, who leave comments, and have made me feel so welcome to this wonderful world of blogging. I cant believe I have been blogging since May, its opened up a whole new chapter in my life.
Here is my version of a unique festive tree - apparently a bit Tim Burton according to M, and a little spooky!!
(if you dont know who Tim is, some of his movies are Edward Scissorhands, Corpse Bride and Alice in Wonderland with Johnny Depp)
This tree is one of a few we have around the farm that have fallen down and died off, we usually use for firewood.
One of my handpainted decorations I purchased from Spotlight
My gorgeous mini pom poms
Very sweet clip on birds from Bed Bath n Table
I already had the silver balls, beads and tinsel
I sprayed the tree lightly with white, so the natural wood still comes through
It ended up being twice the size I thought I had picked, good thing we have high ceilings
My wooden duck watches over the tree, and a vintage tablecloth at the base of the pot
I wrapped the pot in a hessian grain sack - I found some new ones so I pinched them from the workshop
Last years tree was a little simpler and a lot smaller. I painted it to match the feature wall
The entry table decorated with fresh pine tree sprigs on my wooden circle stand
My new frilled table runner, made by a local girl Stacey, I purchased at the recent art & craft fair.
This will be my last post for the year as we are flat out with harvest, my other work, celebrations and preparing for our English family coming to stay. So I wish you all a very Merry Christmas. I hope you all have enjoyable and memorable days over the festive season. Thank you all for sharing your thoughts and parts of your world so far. Take Care...
Warm Hugs & Christmas Cheer
