Oh feather tree, oh feather tree

How lovely are your branches.

Jack is in love with this tree, particularly the little houses.

We found all the little houses at the market this weekend. I love how they have little prints on them, like this one. They remind me of 1960's fabric.

I have never been brave enough to display this tree before, except when it was used to decorate our wedding reception. I finally found a stand that keeps the cats away from it, and so far so good. You can find your own pink feather tree at The Feather Tree Company. Mine is the 4 foot deluxe version.

I made the star from card stock and some glass glitter my husband bought me this summer. I spotted the GORGEOUS (really, the photos do not it justice, and we spent a long time trying to get a good photo too!) old tinsel at a sale this summer, wadded up in a bag with new silver garland. I knew from across the room there was good stuff in the bag, and I spent hours this summer untangling it. The plastic snowflakes and chandelier crystals have been with me for years now, from a garage sale, I think.

Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree. I hope you aren't already sick of my Christmas stuff, there is a lot of it!
