tree one.

Each Friday during the month of December last year, I shared a picture on the blog of different Christmas trees throughout our house.  I had 5 trees last year.  I know, I know - I have a problem.  Well, Michael asked me last night if I planned on posting 'em again this year, so I guess I will.  New tradition, maybe?  Anyway, today I'll share our guest room/office tree (the reason for that slash is in the pictures below).  It's my completely girly, pink, and gold tree.  I LOVE it.  It's just so darn pretty.  

the deets:

-Most of the ornaments are plastic, but there are a few glass ones...gotta hide 'em this year.

-I made the topper out of some wire ribbon and floral wire.  It's not the best bow, but it's going on 3 years, so it stays.

-The tree skirt is actually one of my high school prom dresses.  Mom suggested adding it last year, and I was like, "My PROM dress?  Uh, no."  Then, reality hit, and I thought where am I going to ever where a hot pink, strapless, open-back gown?  Then, reality really hit, and I thought can I even get IN it?  So, it is now an upcycled, tree skirt, and it works perfectly...especially with the tulle underneath, because it just naturally poofs.

-Do NOT analyze the backside...refer to this post for further explanation:

Happy holiday decorating!  

Oh ya, please post a photograph of your tree(s) on the {Creek Junk Facebook} wall.  I wanna see 'em!

thank you...

I didn't realize I had gotten this photo until I put them on comp. Definitely better than last year's photo, which was just of the tree. :)
