Bringing the Christmas tree home in the Dodge truck

For the longest while, I wasn’t sure what direction I was going with the family Christmas tree this year. I do have this vision of a ‘tree forest in the snow’… however my mind’s eye could see was anything but a faux tree. Quite the opposite! I love my faux Christmas Ikea tree but I […]

String wrapped Christmas Trees with stencils

Christmas trees are kinda near and dear to my heart. As a kid, our tree was always real, heavy with tinsel and tin light protectors on big, colourful glass bulbs. We were allowed (I think?) to sneak downstairs and bring one gift back upstairs to unwrap in bed, to hold us over until it was […]

I was showing a few Christmas trees we’ve had from the past onto Funky Junk Facebook the other day, but when I showed my treeless ladder tree from 2012, followers came to my son’s rescue in droves!

Day 3 – Silver bling Christmas tree window shelves

read

Finding my bathroom window a little boring, simple shelves were installed, which made it possible to create these glitzy silver bling Christmas tree window shelves! The backlit silver really casts a lovely glow and offers an interesting focal point to an otherwise bare and boring window. It was fun to jazz them up for the […]
