Soooo not a traditional tree

First, I need to preface this by saying that I chose exactly the right man to marry.  Not only is he a wonderful husband and father, but he's just a great guy! He gets me.  I need lots of 'me' time and he's ok with that and I have a deep need for a white and pink Christmas tree.  He gets that too :) So if you are reading this O, thank you for letting me put shabby chic 'crap' , as you call it, all over our house!

We had a pretty tree, but after taking it out of the attic the top half wouldn't light up.  I listed it on Craigslist for free and a very nice lady who didn't have a tree came and got it.  She was so happy and hugged me twice!  A little searching online turned up a super affordable and cute tree, in WHITE! I highly recommend Hay Needle, great prices, free shipping, and it came in 3 days! {no I wasn't paid to say that, but if someone wants to send me a free tree I would love a silver one!}



I'm undecided on this star, I really wanted one that lights up but Hobby Lobby didn't have any.  I was trying to make it by Target today, but that didn't happen thanks to a soccer game in the RAIN.


I heart these glitter birds!


Every ornament has glitter, I just can't help myself when it comes to sparkle :)



The tree skirt is pink satin with sparkle tulle, from H. L.


Miss M has done really well about not playing with the tree, only 1 ornament lost so far.



The cat's another story!

I'll be showing the rest of my house in another post soon.

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! They are calling for a 'wintery mix' in Dallas this weekend...I'll believe it when I see it!

  6. I saw the same tree skirt at HL today! I thought it would be great for my daughter's tree but it would be too big. I also wondered how easy it would be to make one since I'm so cheap... err... frugal.. lol! You're lucky your husband doesn't care! Mine doesn't either but complains a lot of he doesn't like it... oh well! I just buy stuff for Lily that fills my girly need.

  10. Love your tree! I don't think most people could pull off a pink, sparkly tree but your's does look great!!

    Ha! I probably saw your "free tree" listing on CL's. I look under the Dallas free section all the time and noticed a free Christmas tree the other day. :)

    That's awesome that your hubby "gets" you. I also need a lot of alone time and my husband is nice enough to let me have breaks pretty often. I don't think my husband would go for a pink tree though!! :)
