As I was decorating it became quite obvious that I did not have enough ornaments to cover my new tree. My old tree, which I plan on keeping, is much smaller. My grandparents bought it in the 60's. It was the tree my Mom grew up with and was the tree I grew up with as a kid! Vintage!! :)
Anyway...the ol' tree (and by 'ol tree, I mean the new tree) was needing some more ornaments and some pizzaz! I was on the hunt for something green or turquoise (I'm one of those nuts who loves to have their tree co-ordinate with their decor.)
I made these ornaments with some chandelier crystals and some vintage ribbon.
But the best part of my new tree are these:
Aren't they just gorgeous??!! I bought them at Pier 1. I saw them on the website and just had to have them.
I also bought some green ball ornaments at Canadian Tire for some green colour.
I bought some of the other blue and silver ornaments at Kmart last year on clearance after Christmas.
I have one vintage ornament. Just one. I would love some more, but they're so trendy right now I'm just too cheap to buy them. Maybe a trip out of town to a rural thrift store would be the trick...
Here's my tree in all it's pretty glory!!
Anyone else crazy like me and had their tree up early?
