My White Tree

Also known as my $6.00 Good Will tree! (Cupcake by Celestina Marie!) Doesn't it look sweet in my dinning room?! (I think Pinkie is jealous of my reindeer!)

I'm not done decorating it yet because I'm still buying ornaments for it and making some ornaments, plus making my Pink ribbon chain bigger but I couldn't wait to show you! It actually looked pretty with just the lights and no ornaments!

Hopefully there will be lots of vintage shiny brites on it next year! After we move to Idaho, I plan on going on a hunt because there are lots of antique shops there.

I can't seem to get very many good close ups of the ornaments but I'll keep trying!
Have a holly jolly week, girlfriends!

GORGEOUS sweetie!! I love it! I put my white tree up over the weekend too and I LOVE it! The pastels just pop on a white tree, dont they? I recognize some Celeste Cuppycakes!! She is so talented, isnt she?
I am so sorry about the chain! We made one in Kindergarten, so I guess I thought everyone made them, lol!!
Love ya lots,

Good Morning Sweet Holly...
Sweetie $6.00 did you say? Boy did you get a wonderful find or what? I love this tree. It is magnificent.

When are you moving to Idaho? I didn't catch that before. You haven't mentioned that. That isn't close to Phoenix. Can't you move this direction?

Well sweetie. Please have a great day. Glad your tree is up.

Country hugs and much love..Sherry

I AM in Idaho, sugar. Where are you moving to in this state? You might want to keep a look out for all the ornaments I'm making for my pink Christmas tree on my blog though the next couple of weeks. I'm definitely having a pink tree next year or this year if I can get my act together soon enough, chickee!

Oh Holly, your tree is perfect! It looks just beautiful in your dinning room. I'm sure you will have fun decorating it but it looks so pretty as is.

What??? You got that gorgeous tree for $6?!! Amazing, and it looks beautiful Holly! I love the color of the lights that you've used on it. It's stunning!

Queenie said...

It's beautiful Holly! I love the cupcake rose, and all of the others too... they are all so pretty...I had such fun enlarging every picture... so I could get a closer look at everything! looks like kitty is staying close to the tree too, and had to get in the picture (so cute) ...we gotta love them kitties! They like their shot in the limelight don't they?! LOL!
I so enjoyed seeing your tree, glad you coudn't wait any longer to show it.
By the way I'm still adding ornaments to the bedroom tree too, I found some more in my other box of ornaments, when we were working on the living room tree. Are you doing tradtional green and reds in the living room?
Talk to you again soon!
Big Hugs,

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Holly, Oh I love your white tree. It looks gorgeous in your dining room. Yes, I do see a familiar cupcake peeking out there. The blue one looks good with the white tree.

When do you plan to move. Can you stop here in Texas along the way? Just a thought!!
Your tree is fantastic for only 6 dollars. Looks so much more!

Enjoy the season sweets.
Hugs, Celestina Marie


The tree is lovely! I am giving away some pink vintage ornaments, come by and have a look. Blessings!

Oh be still my heart...what a gorgeous tree! It looks so beautiful, I'd want to sit there all day long to admire it! lol I've decorated my tree with all the vintage ornaments I've either bought through ebay or found in thrift shops and a few are my own that I bought my first year married in 1976. I have some shiny brights and just love them!! xoxo
