A million things to say, one blog post
The branch is finally finished! I think the photo would be loads better with some sunshine, but apparently the sun is never going to shine here again, so I will take what I can get. I love it! It turned out perfectly, even if it did take forever. (And 320 feet of tinsel.) I am pretty sure you can all click on the photo to see it larger.
Close up of the birds. You can see the details of the birds more on the pink ones, because the glitter is more transparent. In an ideal world they would all be either opaque or transparent, but come on, the world just isn't perfect, is it?
Because most of my trees are dripping with delicate vintage stuff, I let Jack decorate his little tinsel tree from Target. I actually shed a tear when he was doing it. My baby is decorating a Christmas tree! Of course, he wanted to hang shiny jingle bells on it. My husband remarked that the love of all things shiny is clearly genetic.
We took Jack to Main Street St. Charles yesterday. This is Frontier Santa (as you can see Jack is enthralled by the costume.) We also saw Civil War Santa, the Ice Queen, Jack frost and others. Jack's favorite part was the Kettle Corn, of course.
AND, we have been thrifting. My husband is a lucky charm, I found 3 tablecloths today for $1.50 each.
The Christmas tree is finished, we have taken the photos with the mall Santa, and finally I am off to turn that fabric into curtains!
