Oh Christmas Tree!

So, my Christmas tree is just about finished. I still need a tree skirt, but I can't bring myself to spend $20 on one, which is about what they cost everywhere. Yes, including Hobby Lobby. I think I'm going to try The Dollar Tree or maybe just make one. And I still need some icicles, which have always been on our family Christmas tree growing up. But I haven't been able to find any. Suggestions??

I just had to post some pictures of my tree. It's such a conglomeration of every ornament I found that I liked. The tree started our with just red and gold ornaments. Then I bought a couple of smaller colored glass ornaments. THEN I bought a couple of larger and way cooler ornaments at Hobby Lobby. And THEN I found a set of 15 ornaments at Home Depot that were navy, teal and silver. SHUT UP! I loved them and there was no way I couldn't purchase. Which brings you to my tree...

{Isn't she lovely?!}

{Luke and Brooklyn got into the picture-taking spirit!}

{Brooklyn's first Christmas picture. Oh believe me, there are more to come!}


  1. suggestion, you pick out fabric and i'll make you a tree skirt! :) i don't have one yet either (well, i do, i just want a new one ;) and i was going to try to make one. it'll be a fun project!

    and...this year i went to goodwill stores and scored with vintage glass ornaments...for like 99 cents per box! *singing* AWESOME!

  2. Gorgeous tree! Could you please mail Brooklyn to me for Christmas? Thanks.

  3. Libby, I'd love if you'd make me a tree skirt! I'll go look for some material:)
