tiny trees.

We are blasting into December full speed people. Like there are rumors of January up and coming. I’m going to hang out in the Christmas spirit for awhile, and I am among friends, hope you can join us in between whatever madness you are up to on your end of the world.

So tree raising happened last week, that sure was fun.

After that blast of energy came and went I was left with this one little awe inspiring moment—so obvious—so clear that I wondered how did I never think of this before??? Surely someone has, if not all of you.

Being that I have a love for the sparse Charlie Brown tree I had left over branches.


Greenery. Just sitting there.

I love spruce tops, but just don’t have the cash flow during (“the most expensive time of the yeaarr… There’ll be parties worth hosting, marshmallows for toasting and caroling out in the snow….”) this time of the year.

And now I am thinking how many sad topless spruces are out there.

I’m kidding. I know they don’t just cut the tops off!!! (right??)

So hmmm….these branches.

I have planters that have this slight hue of aqua to them—

That I then painted another shade of aqua awhile back—

Using a piece of mulch nearby to get that messy I-didn’t-try-but-we-all-know-it-actually-took-some-trying look.

I have blue ball jars.

Extra tree branches.

The retro blue decorations.

I am liking this little collection of blue blue and more blue. A happy little moment.

Thanks for taking a peek into what I’ve been up to over here. Hoping you are having some happy moments yourself – whether little, or big; and regardless of whether there is any shade of blue involved.

    Brilliant, girl. Did you also put up that screen and mirror? What a great combo – I love the little mini trees! I love the blues!

    Plus I’m now dying over picturing millions of topless spruces out there. Really, where do they get those tops? Does someone know???

    I too love tiny trees, tiny anything and so cute hanging out in your planters. I love buying spruce tops but usually don’t get them before they run out. Although, Bachman’s had a sign out end of last week, 2 for 1. Perhaps they don’t truly cut off the tops of trees??? Way to use your leftover branches. : )
