Thursday, a Christmas Tree, and Etsy

Just a over a week until Christmas and my own tree is certainly worse for the wear. It has been loved to death by a very grabby 16-month-old and I swear I can see it quaking when she enters the room. Still, I love having a tree up in the house- the smell, the glittery lights, the beginnings of what will hopefully become a giant ornament collection.

Last week Vivi decorated her dream tree and this week I am going to give it a try. I'm going to put together the type of tree I would love to have up in the kids' playroom. Poking around for this project made me wish I could have a tree up year round, but I doubt there is a fir or spruce out there that would volunteer for that job!

For catching all the needles and well-loved ornaments-

The necessary sparkle and shine-

Some soft, colorful characters-

Some a little less soft, but just as wonderful....

Finally, the big guy himself!

So keep your fingers crossed my real tree makes it until Christmas… I may wind up with only my dream tree standing.


  1. What an have the snowsuit babies on a "dream tree". All your selections are wonderful.

    After many years of collecting, I thought I had my "dream tree", but you make me think about dreaming some more!


  2. Awesome! What a wonderful collection of items for your dream tree! I would like to say that my tree holds ornaments I have made through the years - but I usually ended giving them all away! This year, however, I started keeping some for myself!

    I am honored that you included my turquoise snowflake among all the other Etsy beauties!

    Happy Holidays!
