a 'whatnot' gleeful tree...

for one year i have chosen to live a handcrafted, secondhand life... and so our christmas tree is 'green' in a different sense of the word this year.


made from

- a dead branch out back

- a thrifted red bucket

- a bag of concrete in the garage

- white paint from the cupboard

- crocheted garlands i made two years ago

- vintage pot holders

- thriftstore figurines, painted

- vintage glass ornaments

- vintage cotton spools

- vintage knitting needles

- straw decorations from my box of 'glee'

- vintage button cards

- crocheted doily circles

- yarn balls from last christmas

- length of knitted cream yarn waiting to be made into a blanket one day

- vintage tablecloth

- thriftstore table painted white

and of course

- antique doilies


my clan at mossy shed, have located their 'rose colored' specs and embraced their 'whatnot gleeful tree for this year.

i miss a real tree, but i do believe for this year, i have pulled off a 'handcrafted secondhand' tree of glee...
