Ever since I can remember, I've always loved blue at Christmas. One year I begged my parents to get a blue spruce from the tree farm "because it's blue." My favorite Christmas baubles are blue. My favorite holiday houses are decorated with blue lights. I even tried to buy a baby blue tinsel tree off of Ebay, but then decided that might be a step too far...
Only recently have I realized that blue might actually be my favorite color (if my living room, bathroom and dining nook count as a testament to that statement...) So this year we went for it, with a vintage blue, gold and silver themed tree.
|In the process of decorating - already looking good!|
A few old favorites were included - the crocheted blue skate, a hand-blown glass bauble or two, vintage window ornaments...
At a local shop called Dwell I found some gorgeous vintage-y Wendy Addison "Nest Noel Joy" paper garland, which I (of course) immediately took my scissors to. :)
We added the topper, turned off the lights and oooh'd and ahh'd.
I'm delighted with our blue tree. It's a touch vintage, nature-inspired, sparkly and glittery, not too perfect. Kinda like me. :)
