it’s beginning to look much more like christmas.

i have finally gotten round to adding some decorations to my christmas tree. it sat there, lonely for a few days, albeit smelling so great, but lonesome for some holiday lights and festive ornaments. i went with a sort of vintage-inspired woodland theme this year.

and, you know what? a tree really does help you get into the spirit of the holidays. thanks so much to green valley christmas trees for sending me such a beautiful tree!

  3. What a lovely tree, Victoria! I love the petite ballerina and the vintage-looking Christmas balls.

    Your tree is beautiful, but I must say–I’m still getting over how much I adore your home!! (I’m moving to SF next year and added to my growing list of ‘things I want in an apartment’ is rounded doorways… gorgeous!)

    Hope you’re having a great week!

    Your tree is lovely! Sometimes your tree simply needs to sit until inspiration strikes!

    Love love love your tree. The vintage retro reindeer are my number one pic this holiday for decorating and I’m loving the birdhouse instead of an angel or star at the top of the tree. Fantastic job.

    thanks y’all so much. i was kinda bahumbug and this tree really made me feel better about the holidays.

    elizabeth – thank you and happy holidays to you!

    manvi – that floor lamp was a swap i made with an old neighbor of mine. i think it’s an industrial or surgical lamp.

    laura – thank you – i liked the archways, too. and almost welcome to SF!

    anna – do it. it smells so good, too.

    that birdhouse at the top is from the flea market, too. my angels kept toppling over and breaking! i’m not sure what that says about me. ;)
