In the Spirit

For a few weeks I've been contemplated buying a Christmas tree, but then the analytical Madelyn began to think:
1. I have a car- how would I haul it?
2. I have NO tree decorations, I don't want to spend valuable money on a rush-ornament purchase.
3. I may not have the muscles to carry the tree up 3 flights of stairs
4. Esme may attack the tree

SO... I decided to get a little creative, and do a little searching for the best plan(t). Of course my mothers Country Living magazines and this little thing called Pinterest. : )

While my parents and Stella (family dog, Goldendoodle) and I searchd our fields for the best Christmas tree for the House, I cut a few branches for my quaint little apartment.

I potted the branches in Mason jars and covered in burlap sack, and the tree is potted in an antique crock.

  2. So cute! I love your trees! You could have borrowed all my ornaments that are sitting in my shed! I'm not using them this year... :(
