It all started with the little one for my studio.
And then the medium one for the kitchen.
And FINALLY came the big one from Santa Kohl’s.
It was a week long event. It took only minutes to put the baby tree up. But the big tree… that was a week long chaotic, messy event.
My white Christmas trees are multiplying like little white bunnies. I think I even saw one of the trees smoking a cigarette.
The absolute best part of my my week long decoratingpalooza - was putting all the storage boxes and all the decordoohickies away. I can’t stand anything on my table other than meals and table-bling - so when all the decorating by-product came off the table and the floors - and went back into the garage…. THAT is when sighed and oohed and took a deep relaxing “it’s Christmas!” breath.
Next year’s Christmas… I’m starting next month.
Thank you for the tree-skirt lovin’! Actually, it’s more like tree-pants. It’s just a bunch of basic 9-patch stars set into a big square (I’ll try to make a pattern for it, but it’s really basic). The hardest thing about making this was cutting into the quilt to make the “legs”. Also hard to take pics, as someone kept trying to get in the shot.
