After popping into the Depot here and there for one more bunch of greens I would admire those cute live tabletop trees. Have you seen them? Well, the other day they were half off so for ten dollars I grabbed one up not knowing exactly where I would put it.
This is how he looked after spraying on some snow and giving him a good trim. Mr. 65th asked me why I bought such an ugly little tree.
When he saw it in the morning he had to admit that he was surprised it turned out so nice. I used garage sale ornaments that I have been holding on to and hot glued a pine cone for a tree topper.
The natural theme of the little tree fit nicely with the woodland mantel. If you have been reading along for a while you might remember our faux mantel looking just like this last year. I loved it too much to change it and will keep it through the winter....except for the Merry Christmas sign.
Pinecones are one of my favorite accessories, they go with everything don't they?
I finally found a spot for these faux birch branches...they have been moving all over the house until I tried them here in the living room. I always thought that corner needed a little something. I bought them last year at a nursery that was going out of business for cheap. They will stay out after Christmas too.
I am off to watch a Christmas movie and wrap the rest of the presents. Our traditional Christmas Eve lasagna is made and the house is clean. Let the countdown to Christmas morning begin!
Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas!
