I LOVE IT!!! How clever!

Chris said...

It is my opinion that only one person need ask in order for another picture to be taken. ;-) Thank you for showing it, because now I'm in love with the beaded light/garland thingy on the shelf! Is that two things or one. LOVE it! And that tree?? GoodNESS. I love the toy soldier, the santa...everything. How fun.

Kari said...

LOVE that tree. Mine is very similar but I am always in search for more BIG ornaments...would you be willing to share where you got those huge white snowflakes?!?! I am crazy about them!!

Cindy said...

Wonderful tree! I bet the grandkids love it!

Wendy said...

Oh good heavens! That is the stinkin' cutest tree...possibly ever! I LOOOOOVE it! The Who's would be proud!

Hi Kari,
I got the big snowflakes from a local boutique in town. They're from the Company, RAZ. So if you can find any store that sells RAZ Christmas items, you might find them. RAZ is a HUGE Christmas decoration distributor.
My BIG Red and green striped ornaments came from CVS Drug store, but I had to hit about 5 of them to get enough. : ) Good luck. I'm about to take off for the day, but I'll check back tonight, in case you had any other questions.

Lady of the Mote said...

As he grabbed the tree, as he started to shove, he heard a small sound like the coo of a dove. He turned around fast and he saw a small Who. Little Cindy Lou Who, who was no more than two. And she stared at the Grinch and said...
Santy Claus, why? Why are you taking our Christmas tree, why?
But you know, that old Grinch was so smart and so slick, that he thought up a lie and he thought it up quick.
Why my sweet little tot...
The fake Santie Claus lied...
...there's a light on this tree that won't light on one side. So I'm taking it home to my work shop, my dear. I'll fix it up there, then I'll bring it back here.

it's wonderful!you may find it missing but now you know why!

Hi,

I realize Christmas has long past, but am always planning for next year. Would you mind telling me where you found the tin soldier ornament? I saw it in a magazine and could not find it anywhere! Love your blog! I just found it and had to see what you had done for Christmas.
