Twinkle

Sometimes it really is the smallest things that bring the most pleasure :)

I love looking at all the Christmas ideas floating around blogland, in magazines and on Pinterest, and this year I had convinced myself that I would decorate our Christmas tree entirely in white. Can you imagine it? Heavenly :)

Trouble is, as soon as the tree decorations came out, I was reminded a) how much I love traditional red and green and b) how many memories are tied up in my childrens hand made artwork that always adorns our tree. I realised that a designer-look tree might be some years away yet :)

I had some leftover gold twinkle baubles from another project, so put them to work on the tiny little tree that sits on the bookcase just outside my bedroom door. I attached them with white satin ribbons, added some white accessories, and VOILA!


For the bargain price of 90 cents,I have a white Christmas tree all of my very own :) ...the whole pack of coloured baubles only cost me $2.80.

Love an extra bit of Christmas twinkle.

I love your white tree :o) One way around the "designer tree" is to have two! I have one that the kids decorate and it has all their hand made decorations etc and is so so special. It sits in one lounge and then in the other lounge we have MY tree :o) As the kids are getting older I am now letting them help but I do get final say and it takes me forever to decorate ..... it's our designer tree :o)

Its looks great , I always laugh at how parents have one idea about decorations at Christmas and kids have another. This year my older daughter started to lean towards parents idea but we just have to wait a few more years yet for the other daughter.

What a great little tree! I've always wanted a white tree too, but darn I love all those other ornaments! I cave every year. Ah well, there's always next year!
