A Weathered White Christmas Tree

Well, I know it is still so hot in Texas, but we...Suzette and I, are gearing up for the Christmas Tea...We are working on ideas...
and remembering some from last year,
I never posted about~
one of our many treesHa ha, hard to believe I still have pics that I've never posted, I know!



We used baubles and beads with our handmade vintage looking cards...





Jolly ol'  Fella!


 and Flowers...

A perfect touch of flowers crafted from old patterns, Song Sheets & paper




Forgoing electric lights tangled all through the tree, we used a spotlight...keeping the nostalgic feeling...


 the panther paw, just a whimsical nod to our Panther mascot...


The tree is "the" shade of  weathered white...sitting in my rusty, baby washtub.




 The Tub filled with ornaments shimmering and snowballs glistening...while outside the weather is sweltering...
aww can you remember it?  Winter!



























Hundreds upon Hundreds of our musical chains... Really.




so for now, Fa la la,  I promise not to post too much Christmas, yet!
until then...I'm joining White Wednesday~!



Chillin'

Love the tree, the sheet music chain, the bucket filled with baubels... all gorgeous shades of white.
Wouldn't SNOW be wonderful right now?

Sooo cool and refreshing?

Hmmm... we had rain and a real storm last night, how about you did you get any down that way?

...it smelled so wonderful outside before church this morning, Pat
