happy monday everyone! thought i better start doing some show'n & tell'n if i am to get my holiday posts in! or @ least in on time! i very well could be talking trees well after christmas!
so today's "tree by me" is actually THE tree. the big kahuna...the top dog...the numero uno! that's right...she's the beauty that graces our homefront this year. and before i rattle on any further...i will stop myself and just throw it out there! drum roll please...
one doesn't start building a house without a foundation. and i don't start building my tree without one as well. and it happens to be a treasured victorian era urn. it's crusty + fabulous. now i know "crusty" may not be desirable on many surfaces...but here it's all good! contents of mystery tupperware in back of fridge...not good! movin' on...
old ornaments...glass glitter stars....salvaged chandelier crystals...tarnished tinsel. that tongue twister pretty well sums up the rest of the story! please take note in the upper right corner photo - what once graced trees from days past...silvery candle clips...now hold a glinty & safe alternative...spear-like chandi prisms. LOVE 'em
ok. i am going to be a bit more on the brief side today. because in typical beth-like form...i have been procrastinating a bit on some projects. or should i say saving the best for last. yes...that's it...the best for last. last minute that is!
so this elf must get to making...creating + pulling the holiday magic together for gatherings w/ friends & family this week. but you all are always on my mind as well...so i will be intouch! and if you have a minute to do the same i sure love it when you toss a comment my way!
wishing you a happy start to a happy holiday week!
