I guess it’s become something of a tradition, for me to post photos of my Christmas tree each year. Well I am happy to share that two years after first dreaming of a Blue Atlas Cedar Christmas I finally have one...
It's something of a Charlie Brown tree, but heck, that makes me love it even more. This is my potted B.A.C. from the garden, the one I almost killed last winter...
Since the bright orange container it's in would have killed the Christmas color scheme a basket from IKEA came in handy as a cover. I've been obsessing about these long cones falling from a neighborhood tree and have been picking them up on dog-walks.
They made a nice simple garland for the mantle.
The metal icicles are new this year, from Schoolhouse Electric (the husband's employer). They weigh about half an ounce each, perfect for the tiny branches.
Cones aren't the only thing I've been gathering. Plenty of twigs and moss made it into the gift wrapping.
And since everything else was free (or already owned) I splurged on a couple of Leucadendron argenteum branches...
Every holiday needs a little bit of luxury.
For that lovely cut Christmas tree smell we've got a little table-top wreath.
I know that's supposed to be a candle in the center but heck, isn't an agave so much better?
And of course there is the traditional sparkle wreath on the grinch-green front door.
