O (little) Christmas Tree, O (little) Christmas Tree...

How lovely are your (little) branches...

This year I didn't get out the big tree.
I'm supposed to be packing to move.
I didn't want to set up the tree when I was really going to be packing up stuff.
(turns out, I didn't pack anything either:/, but that is a different post.)

I bought a little second hand tree ($1.50),
added this years (.25 cent) angel and called it good.
THEN I added a string of gaudy star lights ($1.00),
and blue beads ($1.00).
Not good enough.
THEN I added gold foil stars (.50 cents),
covered the base with tissue paper,
and attached this years 'couple' ornament Mr. & Mrs. Claus (.25 cents).
(gotta do my part for the economy and supporting my local thrift stores)

Ta Da!!! Perfectly Shiny and Gaudy!!
This little tree will go to its new home in the camper when I find the perfect box.

Merry Christmas,
Big or Small,
To One and ALL!!!

You did great! It's so cute. I saw alot of these little trees used at the inlaws homes as decor and I'd love to do this next year!

I hope you had a lovely Christmas!

Because of our son, we didn't put up a tree this year, but yours is lovely :)

I love your background too…I am shopping around for new ones. Is there a place you can recommend that has beautiful backgrounds?

Hi, just stopping by to say thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I like this little tree, it is cute! I did not put up a big Christmas tree either this year, I got as far as dragging the box out of the closet but that was it. Oh well, maybe next year!
