O Christmas Tree - how lovely are your white branches! Wait! That's not how the song goes, however it's all about the white tree in my house! I love that it just glows! It's gorgeous - if you have ever considered a white tree - DO IT NOW!
FYI - I love my reindeer pillows - thanks Mom! They are harder to keep clean with grungy kids & pets, but they are too cute!
This ornament was my favorite ornament. Notice how I say was - because my kids are rats. This chicken has no legs now! I hung it on the top of the tree because it was so special to me, and still they managed to climb each other like cheerleaders and break it. I got this chicken for my very first married Christmas. My husband made his co-worker stop at Hobby Lobby to pick me out a special ornament for my stocking - we only did stockings that year. It was so special to me. I still hung it on the tree, but it has to be hidden now because the lack of legs! It just cracks me up that he stopped at Hobby Lobby - shopped the endless aisles of ornaments & got me the chicken one. Which was actually perfect! It was glass with some glitter & I love chickens. We even tried to raise 13 once - that's a whole different story ;)
This is a new ornament I just picked up with the kids. I have a thing for reindeers & always a love of glitter! He's cute & better yet plastic! Do you think I like turquoise and glitter?
Since I have young kids that don't appreciate the love of ornaments I have all plastic balls right now. I have have gorgeous vintage glass balls saved for the future. Until then I have bright fun colors in glitter. Then, these glitter peacock feathers are to die for! They are great to add some dimension to the tree!!
Another great find - some beaded silver disk sticks. I have about ten of these through out the tree too. Lots of fun!
The stockings are all hung on our bannister. I love our bannister. It was hand made by my Great Uncle Bob. Very special touch to our home & it looks great - picture doesn't do it justice! We have 4 stockings for our family, and one for each dog. I love that I can hang them right here. It just adds another touch of Christmas flair - because we (as in us Fox women) tend to go a bit (a lot) overboard for Christmas!
I didn't know where to include this picture. It's another fabulous tree in my home. That's right - peacock feathers! This is the foyer area of our house. I have a great vintage pine cone poster that goes up for the winter. Then I fill the wooden bowl with all our beloved christmas cards.
