...oh christmas tree ~ oh christmas tree ~ how lovely are your branches!


...hello, hello dear ones!!

i'm taking a short break from making
my christmas "soul cakes"
to share,  my snow dusted tree this year...

 
as i have lots o' pictures
i won't be saying much
mostly just sharing a few links...

 
i sooo wanted a flocked tree this year
but most of the trees out there were
#1 ~ too big and tooo large
and #2 ~ ahh, $300 is a bit much!

my christmas trees are different
each and every year.
i figure,
we only have so many christmases in our lifetime,
so why make every tree the same year after year??!

 
so, i set out to find some white tree flocking...
i wanted a snow dusted look.
and that is exactly what i got!
here is where i found my tree flocking


don't be intimidated!!
YOU can do this too!


 
i used 1 pound of white bonding flock
and two Martha Stewart glitter jars of iridescent glitter...

LOVE how it turned out!!

now, for the embellishing...



 
a rhinestone pretty from Michelle
at



 
to which i added the most exquisite lace ruffle around...
it has tiny beads and sequins and silver threads
so ethereal


 
and a paper ruffle frill to this one...
(also from petite michelle louise)



 
and this one...

 

 
 ~ sigh ~

 

 
these next few pretties are from Rhonda
of A Little Bit French at
 ~ Paris Gal 56 ~

all three of us kindred hearts
were drawn to this lovely image this year...

 

 
so pretty hanging on the branches....

 

 
doves that carry iridescent bubbles of wishes...

 

 

 

 
vintage blue velvet flower lights.
i was sad they didn't fit in the light strand sockets on this tree
but they are still very blu-eautiful...

HA!!

 

 
i'm blamin' those "drunken sour cherries"
 in the "soul cakes"!!

 

 
tiny glass bells
as one can never
 have too many sets of angel wings
 in this wonderful life:)

 

 
satin covered ones...

there are delicate strands of angel hair on my tree too.
did you know that it is actually spun glass??
i never realized that until this year!!

 

 
and  Mother Mary with baby Jesus...

 

 
the reason for the season in our home



 
and that is my snow dusted christmas tree!

 

 
thanks for dropping by!
i hope you are having lots of merriement in your hearts!

now,
i really must get back to making those cakes:)
