O Christmas Tree!

I tought I share my tree with you, I'm very proud of it, even if we had a rather difficult start.

My colour scheme this year is white and gold with just a few touches of silver (I ran out of gold ornaments).

Most of my baubles are thrift store finds. I just love everything vintage plus they are very budget proof. I tend to get a bit shopping mad during the Holidays...

There's one 'new' bauble this year, a retro Mickey that I got in Disneyland Paris.

I made my own garlands using hard cotton balls from the craft store and wooden beads that I painted gold.

And some feather boa's to add a touch of glamour.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to make myself a hot cup of chocolate and stare at my tree for an hour or two...
