Elegant Whimsical Christmas Tree

It was another busy day for Sherry and me again today. We worked on two houses and still have more to do tomorrow. Everything takes longer than you think...especially when you have lights that don't work! Darn! Also, a couple of our clients decided they wanted a few more things done, so we have more to work on tomorrow. I am planning on putting my tree up on Thanksgiving if all goes as planned, so don't forget about my tutorial!


This is a tree in my friend's house that we worked on yesterday. It is fun and elegant with beautiful ribbons and whimsical ornaments.


I LOVE that polk a dot glittery ribbon. This tree just sparkles in the house!


That's Bo laying in front of the tree...he is the funniest thing! I'm going to get more pics of him tomorrow.

There is still alot of this house to come...we are going to finish it up tomorrow.


I will be listing more Etsy items tomorrow night.


Have a great Wednesday!

That's so pretty, Kristen! I love sparkly ribbon (actually, sparkly ANYthing ... LOL). You both did an amazing job ... clearly, Bo thinks so, too! Look forward to seeing more.

You must be exhausted, Kristen, but everything has been looking so beautiful! Love this tree and I'll be watching for your tutorial, too. I'd like to add ribbon to my tree this year. Have a great Thanksgiving!
