Hola! Where does the time go, Geez Louise! Half summer is already gone, and I am first now updating this from last December, tsk tsk. Bad Jan! So, been busy puttering around the yard, as always, and paying more attention than I probably should be to politics. The kitchen "remodel" is on hold due to budgetary constraints, but I hope to have that remedied before the end of the year. And I have yet to paint the guest room - it's only been 3 years now since I moved in to this version of Maison Newton, I'm not lazy or anything, nope... LOL! Take care and have a great rest of the summer. Jan

Unexpected and Unusual Christmas Trees! Part 1

Hi everyone!

For the many days past, whenever I've had a chance (not often), I did some searches for Christmas trees that were decorated in tawny colors; neutral colors; pearl colors; white; black (just for the heck of it); etc. etc. 

Well, one never knows what one may get in a search result at Google, or any other search engine either (Yahoo is especially wide-ranging!!!)  And one never knows from where one may receive incredible inspiration. I came across a couple of these trees during my searches that were so entirely different than anything I've encountered before, I just had to write about them.

But -- I also got my primary inspiration for doing this post from an entry to a blog party.  So, without further ado, I hope you will enjoy this assembly of unconventional and interesting Christmas trees that may not, exactly, be trees at all!

Not in any order at all, except I'm trying to mix up the more "conventional" and "unconventional":

O Christmas tree, with so many styles, we adore thee

It's not an image of a full tree.  But I could SOOOOO see these colors on my tree since I added my Paul Michael Company long, tall "feathers," as represented in the beautiful butterflies, pine cones and other "tawny colored" elements!  The colors would go perfectly!  I'm thinking ahead to my 2013 Christmas tree, with my precious faux feathers (all 6 of them) installed!!!
(2)  This is THE TREE that inspired me to write this post, from Turtles and Tails blog.  I love how it was gathered, and I love how it was done - actually put together, and I love the love that was behind it's creation:

Christmas Tree Off the Wall? No, It's on the Wall!

More tomorrow!  I'm thinking that I need to buy me some mesh "ribbon!"
