It's beginning to look a lot like...

I suppose the one positive thing about this insanely cold weather we've been having, is that it has forced me into the holiday spirit. We put up our 1950's aluminum tree this year and we were able to find a color wheel at an antique store to light it up.  The tree has tiny red and pink metallic ornaments at the tips of the branches, which I think is a bit more rare.  I filled out the rest of the spaces with similar colored Shiny Brites, hand painted glass ornaments, and some quirky vintage handmade ornaments which all either came from antique stores or estate sales.

What about you? Are you feeling the holiday spirit yet? 


  1. Fabulously fun, festive tree and holiday decor! I agree, you don't see aluminum ones with ornaments on the tips of the branches very often at all.

    I'm feeling fairly Christmas-y this year. Not the absolute most ever - it's been one of "those years" and then some, which I know is playing into things there a bit - but certainly still in a mood that's merry and bright. :)

    Happy two weeks until Christmas!
