2012 Holiday Tree & Ive been FEATURED!!

Hello friends!

Started out as my tree topper~ was too heavy ended up as a one of a kind centerpiece.
Antique sheet music

Guess what!? My Vintage Suitcase Table has been Featured TWICE!

In the Past, Ive always had a real Christmas Tree, sometimes they are Huge and sometimes they look like a Charlie Brown tree but whatever their shape i love them just the same. This year i just couldn't fathom spending a ton of money on a real tree when i have all this house stuff to pay for before my home goes on the market ~ all too soon! So we got a little 5' tree. I though I'd be okay with that but once i got it home i realized it was simply just to short. So what better way to elevate it than putting on top of a vintage suitcase. LOVE IT!!

 I may just do this next year too. I think it looks so cute.

Most ornaments on the tree are handmade by me ~ the clear bulbs have endless possibilities of what they could be stuffed with. this year I had a Vintage Paper theme going on. I used a whole book of antique sheet music and quite a few of yellowed to perfection, vintage books.

my sons first handmade ornament ~ he glittered the heart ( and the floor)

Of coarse, I couldv'e kept adding ornaments but my mantra this Holiday is SIMPLE. For me this season less is better.

Thank you for sticking around and reading my little blog!
Happy Holidays everyone!
