Some Close-Ups of our Xmas Tree!

I know I still need to blog about Seattle, and Portland, and Renegade Craft Fair!! But I also really need to pick up the house! After a couple weeks of traveling and crafting, the house has exploded with slivers of paper, clothing, yarn bits, bubble wrap, and jewelry findings! I also need to post Renegade leftovers up on Etsy for you guys!

But anyway, here are some peeks of our Xmas tree. I don’t want to take a full-length shot, because the tree is sandwiched between two chairs, which are covered in various ugly blankets to keep dog dirt and hair off them!

I bought my tree on eBay, and my goal was to decorate it only with vintage and handmade! This is the first year I’ve really felt like getting my own tree. I’m becoming sentimental for Christmas. It’s unfortunate that Hairy is such a grump and keeps saying, “I HATE CHRISTMAS!” But I got us a big pink Christmas tree anyway!

Vintage popcorn and candy garlands, plus one popcorn garland crocheted by me (my own pattern…which I may post later!).

Ornaments by CakeSpy, Chloe (a surprise giftie!), and 12LegsCuriosities.

Sadly, due to my busy schedule, I was not able to handmake many presents this year :(. I am thinking maybe next year I won’t vent at a holiday fair, but just put stuff on Etsy and craft for my loved-ones. But we’ll see! There’s always this weird pull for me to set up my fabric food truck and sit around for 8 hours hawking my wares :P.

    Hairy sounds alot like my Vegan. He’s always saying “I HATE CHRISTMAS!” too! Ah well, I have a little black Christmas tree with spooky ornaments and a few handmade favorites πŸ™‚ I love that your tree is cupcake-themed!

    The tree is sooo you! Well, it seems several of us have other halfs that aren’t into decorating much. If i had my way, the entire outside and inside would be decorated to the hilt and totally lite up!!!! LOL!!! I can’t put up my usual tree because, my 2 maine coons would pull it over so, we just do a small 3ft prelit with unbreakable things they can’t kill. It works. LOL!
