Unconventional Tree

We decided not to get a tree this year
so I decorated our tumbleweed branch instead and I love how it looks!
I bought those tin stars in San Miguel de Allende ten years ago.
Ornaments have come and gone but I never get tired of the stars.

I seem to take less ornaments out of our boxes each year. Less is more.

It's a lovely way to bring Christmas into the home without the decorations overwhelming. The stars are lovely. I have my favourite decorations too and sneak them into pride of place positions on the tree.

We've still done a tree, but have gone extra simple this year, through the house. Love your snowflakes, too. Wish I could get mine to stay so flat! Do you starch them or something? Felice Navidad!

Neat! I picked up a handful of these last month when I was in San Miguel! Love them!

This year they are hanging from my ceiling fan above my kitchen table - but I've always planned on setting up a bare branch like this!

I am definitely with you on this one. It seems such a shame to chop a tree down just for a week of two in a house. I like the old idea of spraying some twigs with fake snow.

I hope you have a beautiful and peaceful Christmas.

I haven't had a real tree in years and instead I hang a Christmas chandelier. It hangs above the table, lights and all and all of my favorites are up there. Love the stars on your tree.

While I don't think I could go without a traditional conifer tree, this is pretty darn awesome too! I agree that those stars make it. :)

Happy holidays!

I am delighted I found your blog! GREAT STUFF... you and "the boy" and the dog! Found it because I was looking for "winter bird" images for a newsletter I do for a small women's group. I love how your paintings and embroidery compliment each other.
Happy New Year.
