~Oh Christmas Tree~

I was able to find a little time to get the christmas tree in my bedroom decorated and wanted to share with you.  We don't usually have a traditional perfectly shaped tree in our home and this year was no exception.  Both of our trees were cut from our property and couldn't be more different from each other.

This one is short and fat at the bottom which was perfect for this corner in my bedroom sitting in my french olive bucket.  The lighting wasn't good for taking photos of our other tree which is in the living room, but it is tall and skinny....very charlie brown looking, which is just the way I like it.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

I ended up using mostly white ornaments on this tree.  Angel wings, crystal prisms with french paper, some that I made last year with photos from old french prayer cards and vintage balls.

The Jeanne d' arc ornaments from the branches in my living room were moved and added to this tree since they fit the look I have going so much better in my bedroom.  I hope everyone enjoys their weekend and I'm hoping to finish up all my decorating so I can take photos of my whole house.  I just hope the sun comes out because it's hard to get good photos this time of year when it is so dark and dreary outside.

Also, my thoughts and prayers go out to all the families who lost loved ones today in the horrible tragedy at the elementary school in Conneticut.  As a mother of three children I just can't imagine how devastating this would be. May God bless everyone in that community. 


  1. Your tree looks so beautiful! The shape of it really gives it the Nordic feel and the way you decorated it too. And of course I love the olive bucket! It is all just lovely!!

  2. I looked and looked for a tree like this, limbs far apart and delicate. I am so jealous. I wanted one so bad. Thanks for sharing. Richard from My Old Historic House.
