One tree is up and decorated. I'm really cutting back this year as far as the decorations go. I want a simple primitive look to all my trees.
Only three different things on this tree - small grapevine wreaths, red berries and ripped flannel homespun ties. I did add the Gone Sledding cross stitch piece for a little interest.(pattern by The Sampler Girl - link directly to the pattern - http://www.thesamplergirl.com/catalog.php?item=259) I put the tree in a wire egg basket and wrapped the base with burlap.
Have you been in to Dollar Tree? They have some great wrapping paper. Both of these are brown craft paper - one is a burgundy gingham check and the other is a gold star. Love them - $1.00 each and they are made in the USA! I bought them in Wisconsin in a Dollar Tree, my Dollar Tree here in Ohio doesn't have any. If they did, I am sure my friend Melissa (Farm Field Primitives) and her mom bought all the rolls!
Did you go out Black Friday Shopping? We did - we're crazy I know - but we were home by 1:30. We got what we needed and headed home. My sister and our boys were playing rock paper scissors to pass the time. My husband and our daughter were looking on.
Later on Black Friday we had to celebrate a birthday. Our daughter turned 17. Wow - how did she get to be this old? My nieces loved helping with the candles....
My Mom and her youngest 6 grandkids. Mine are the 3 oldest ones in this photo. Mamie (as she is known to these 6) is going to use this as her Christmas Card. Wish the other 2 grandkids could have been with us so all 8 were in the photo.
