Feeling festive

I wanted to share some pics of our tree this year - as I mentioned last time, we didn't really have a Christmas last year and I'm a little fixated on it this year.

My next project is to make a tree topper because I felt that the old one (a snowflake) wasn't really what I wanted in a place that doesn't get much snow. It seems like having snow-themed decorations inside and a lot of green outside would be too confusing :) I had an idea to make a new star covered in bright green preserved moss. In my head, it seems really cool and appropriate to our mossy surroundings and I hope it will look good in reality as well. If I ever get around to making it, I'll post a picture here.

it's gorgeous- we didn't do a tree this year so i am jealous. i especially love that heart shaped ornament- very organic feeling!

Isn't that heart sweet? I found it at an artists' co-op gallery and it's made out of strips of wood.

So beautiful! I love it. Great hair in your photo by the way, nice!

Thanks, Michelle! Sometimes I can get my hair to cooperate for 1/60th of a second to take a photo :)
