With A Little Bit Of Blooming Luck

Until today only a few fragrant vases of pine and an occasional rose have decorated our house for Christmas.




Not a bauble, not a flicker of light, not a glimmer of glitter.

But today the tree goes up, and with any luck it stays up.

You probably didn't know us last year so take a peek at our tree trimming adventure Christmas 2009.

Then keep your fingers crossed.

  1. We're also putting up the tree today, in the jumbo pot, with lots of rocks. I now have hooks permanently screwed into the wall in "the tree spot" to tie the tree to.

    Just in case.

  3. I hope you are using stand versus vase this year. Be careful. Have fun! I've added a pine branch resting in water-filled milk bottle to my decor. It's quite charming.

  6. I love the idea of just pine in a vase.....

    No tree for me any more; I go all out on a mantelpiece, lots of candles, and that's about it. Christmas is getting simpler and simpler!

  11. The vases of pine is a great idea. Looks festive and I like that it can be placed up high on something, away from mischievous dogs :-)

  13. Sara Louise, that's right, out of tail's way. A little worried about the tree though....

    Julienne, I had no idea I would hit your guilt button smack in the middle! You'll thank me though.
