    25 Days of Christmas Trees Day 20

    Just a few more days till Christmas! But don’t worry – I have plenty of trees to get us through the countdown! Today’s tree is from the dining room forest. I love how it’s loopy metal with a few jewels scattered throughout. I think I picked this up a Kohl’s when it first opened here … Read more

    25 Days of Christmas Trees: Day 16

    We bought this tree on Amelia Island, FL a few years ago. I’m completely crazy about the color of it. What I can’t get out of mind however is that when we bought it, the artist told us she made it from a gin bottle. Which did not enhance it for me in any way! … Read more
