Our sweet little tree ~

Aren't you just about sick of me talking about this ol' Christmas tree?
Oh well, it's what I'm doing and you know good and well
that my blog is all about what I'm up to!

I had to take a few photos today to show you how the decorating is progressing.
The funny thing????
You don't even NOTICE the snow I painted and the glitter...

Oh well....
I'm not quite finished but wanted to share
how the tree is looking with you.

I found six of these gorgeous votives at Ross last week.
They have a beautiful pearl finish and a silver emblem on the front ~
and for only a buck a piece, they were mine!

And I just have to share this sweetness with you!!!
Brent and Emily took the babies to Bass Pro Shops to see Santa and
this is the adorable photo Brent took with his phone...
Clara was SO proud to see Santa that she RAN to him!
Can you believe that?
No crying and not scared one little bit!
Just look at her precious hand resting on Santa's hand....

I have a few wonderful friends that have new blogs!
If you would be so kind to pay them a visit and give them a little blog love
I would be so very grateful!!!

A precious childhood friend (I think we were 13 when we met)
Sharon and her new blog:


Please welcome them both into this wonderful blogging world!!!!

Wishing you a wonderful December weekend precious friends,
hugs and love,

Your sweet little tree looks wonderful. To someone who hasn't been looking at it daily for several days will probably notice that snow/glitter you added.
The grandbabies are adorable with Santa. Thanks for the pictures.

Lorrie said...

Your tree is lovely, Dawn. All the ornaments and lights are what really shows up.
Your little grands are adorable. Love that little hand on Santa's glove.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Jenna said...

Michele said...

Your tree is beautiful and your g babies are precious - that sweet trusting loving hand on Santa's - priceless!

Linda Carole Bloom said...

I came to see the "wing instructions" via Bliss Angels Blog, now following you! I LOVE your beautiful tree and the Santa photo is priceless!

Sue @ Miss Phoebes Perch said...

Hi Dawn. The tree looks great, and the children darling. Thanks for sharing these, and also for introducing my blog. Your blog is the standard by which I judge all others! Sue

Theresa said...

I love your tree and I am NOT sick of hearing about it:) SWEET Santa picture with your angels! Have a blessed and restful day! HUGS!

Your tree turned out beautifully, Dawn! I love it! The grands look wonderful in their picture with Santa. My 2 1/2 year old granddaughter will not go to Santa; she backs away from men with beards. Maybe next year. Off to visit your friends!

BECKY said...

Dawn, I LOVE your tree! I haven't stopped by in quite a while, so I'm definitely not sick of hearing about it! :)
And as far as that photo with's just perfect. Perfect! The children are adorable and the Santa maybe has a real beard?!
Thanks for sharing!

Donna said...

What a beautiful tree! I love all of your gorgeous ornaments, and your frosty touches. I just picked up a little faux tree that I plan on doing the same to. Thanks for the inspiration! Your grandchildren are precious!

Lady Pamela said...

I have to admit to you, that when you were painting your tree I had my doubts. lol But, now that I see it decorated with all your lovely handmade ornaments, it is truly beautiful.

Jenny said...

No such thing as an "ugly" christmas tree huh? Especially after you gave it a makeover with your gorgeous decorations. I knew it would be beautiful...great job Dawn!


Vee said...

Well, obviously, Clara can tell the real Santas. He certainly looks real. Precious photo.

Your tree looks marvelous!

Pat C. said...

Oh, Dawn, your tree is gorgeous!!! I can't believe what a steal the votives were... I just love the luminescent way the candlelight shines through them.♥

And what a precious pic of Clara and Murray with Santa! (But I was thinking that possibly sweet Clara was trying to place her little hand on her chest, but Santa's hand got in the way! Either way, though, she is an angel.) Santa looks awfully happy and jolly, doesn't he?! Bet he tossed back a few buttered rums ("hold the butter" before he performed his duties!! hehehehe


Dorthe said...

Dear Dawn,
your tree is so filled with your beautiful creations, I love it and the old time feeling I get watching all the lovely ornaments.
And the photo is wonderful, I can see Clara is just a tiny bit overwhelmed from the situation, standing there with Santa- how precious.
Weekend hugs and love ,

Dit juletræ bliver så skønt, og din lille pige er så sød som hun står der og holder julemanden i hånden. knus morkaren.

Createology said...

Your tree is lovely. The photo with Santa is priceless. Off to visit the new blogs...

Marlynne said...

Your tree turned out beautiful! It looks like a "Karen Valentine Tree" and that's a big complement in my book! I will visit your friends new blogs soon.

Sue said...

beautiful decorations but those babies of yours....too cute for words....

❁Velma ~Down Our Country Road❁ said...

Your tree is turning out to be very lovely. Yes, I don't even notice the snow.
Love the pic of your grandbabies wiht Santa. Adorable!
And I will pay a visit to your friends' new blogs.

Hello Dawn
I adore your tree - and sometimes we have a week of fixing here and there until we are satisfied with it. My MIL arrives tonight and I will await her comment about "she likes color lights" which are NOT on my tree. I take the insult every year.
Congrats on Baby Murray. I don't know if I mentioned it - but "Murray" was my Grandmother's maiden name...and they have their own tartan! ;) Just type Murray kilt or tartan online and you can find it. Happy Sunday!

Pendra said...

Yup... beautiful, simply beautiful!

Deneen@dreaming-n-color said...

Beautiful tree! Happy Holidays Dawn!

Rose Garden Romantic said...

Dawn, your tree turned out so beautifully! I love the way you have decorated it!

marie said...

Your tree is beautiful Dawn...and I can see the white frosted branches. It's a very pretty touch.

Love the photo of your sweet grandbabies and Santa!!
