Our Little Tree, gifts and some of our artwork on the wall behind. The paintings on the left were a gift from our roommate last year.
I know, I know - artificial trees are bad for the environment (trust, it was a difficult decision for me) but I am planning on having this guy for a long time and maybe "they" will figure out how to recycle artificial trees by the time it gets retired. Good news is the wired branches can always be used to make other things and the motor for the lights can be put to some good use. If nothing else that part can be recycled.
The best thing to do is get a live tree that you can plant or a locally cut tree from a sustainable tree farm, but planting a tree in the yard of our rented house may not make the owner happy and there is little space in our cozy living room after furniture and musical instruments are considered, so this little table top tree was a perfect option for us!
My boyfriends guitar ornaments and a little snowman ornament I made with clay and wire.
Our Tree topper is a little Day of the Dead Doll I made with clay, wire, vintage fabric and paper. The Santa was "stolen" from my parents collection of vintage ornaments.
Happy Holidays Everyone!
