Friday's Favorites

I decided it was time to 'spruce' up our old tree. It is an articficial pre- lit tree that I have had for several years. It is looking a little tired (or maybe my eyes are just tired)
I filled it with large red and gold balls and a few of my favorite ornaments~ but that still didn't feel right. Then I poked in brances of live pines and cedar with pretty berries
Not only does it help to fill out the tired spots... but the room is filled with the smell of Christmas.
Fabulous and Free!

What is your favorite today?
Y'all join in~

Your tree looks beautiful Sandi! I am decorating mine this weekend. I am so behind as I was in Denver 10 days visiting my son and his family. My grandson turned two!

Looks great. I've done exactly the same thing. I've actually found some real looking artificial greenery and use it to feel in the big gaps. I like the looks of different types of trees. But...the real stuff sure does smell good.

I'm having a ball at my son's house with the grands, but snuck away for a few minutes for a "blog fix".

Hugs,
Kat
