A Bit of Holiday Cheer!

I've learned something this holiday season as I'm running through the house frantically trying to get everything done. Waiting until the last minute and skating to the finish line isn't working for me anymore. My energy level just isn't what it used to be.


Part of the problem was thinking that wrapping  the heavy wire tree with yarn would be a breeze. The tree ate up about a week of my spare time to complete! "Wrapping 101" is a bit harder than I thought.


But I love it! I collected these celluloid ornaments on e-bay two weeks ago. The simple look of the menagerie of animals appeals to me. The donkey is pressed cardboard but I added him to the collection as I loved his sweet look.


The snowflakes are laser cut wood.




I have a bit more to go before I'm ready, but at least this tree is done!

Wishing you peace and happiness!

Alma

  25. I love this tree and the animals are a perfect touch. I'm with you about not being able to do things last minute like I used to. I pulled my old list for Christmas preparations and got through less than half of it this weekend. There was a time when I'd have done all of it with time left over. Guess I have to start much earlier now.
    Happy Christmas you and your family from New Hampshire!

  26. looks wonderful...I made a cotton batting tree this year, I took a small tree and wrapped the branches with cotton quilt batting, then just gave it a bit of aging with coffee.......
