This year I banished the color red from my tree. I happen to love red, it is a close cousin to pink, one of my favorite colors. But there is not any red in the rooms the tree can be seen from. So this year I focused on pink, white, silver, gold or bronze. It turned out to be a more cohesive look and flowed better with the rooms.
Every year we buy a tree a little too tall, so we have to lobe the very top off of the tree and there is really not enough room for a tree topper. This year I have a bejeweled bear holding court near the top of the tree.
Years ago I did paper cuttings to add to the tree. To me they are like icing on the cake, they add light and unexpected interest. At one time I had a whole heard of animals but they went missing in the holiday clean up one year. I keep hoping they will turn up, where oh where could they be???
On the right you can see the hutch decked out with little houses and bottle brush trees. I'll give you a close up look at those a little later……
Despite taking about 30 pictures of the tree, I don't feel any of them captured it's true beauty and sparkle. And of course we are missing the wonderful smell.
