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!

  1. Your tree is beautiful, Victoria! Prettiest I’ve seen so far this season. Love the vintage and outdoor decorations. As usual, your blog has been wonderful this year. It makes me want to do a complete overhall in my house. Have the Happiest of Holidays!

  2. your tree is gorgeous! i love the birdhouses and delicate ornaments. we’ve been traveling the last few weeks, but the first thing on my list upon coming home was getting a tree. it really does amplify the season’s charm.

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. 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. ;)

  6. I love your tree Victoria! We’re sticklers for a real tree in our home…the smell truly makes it feel like Christmas! Your collection of ornaments is lovely and the perfect mix of old and new :) Merry Christmas!
