It's a bottlebrush and deer holiday

Bottlebrush, deer and greens 
make decorating 
so easy.

Just doing wee bits at a time and 
my holiday storage I designed years ago
makes no mess at all.

The tree is the smallest I've ever done 
but I'm happy with it.

It has cotton balls on stems and frosted 
eucalyptus and lambs ears tucked in all over,
and then a few green and white paper ornaments
join some vintage mercury glass and
the requisite birds nest.

The red is only in the den. Last year it was
the porch, but change is good.

The lighted village is on my coffee table,
 so nighttime is very cozy.

The bedrooms I will do after Thanksgiving,
while I blast holiday music and most likely 
the new Adele. I still get chills when 
I remember her concert that was treated by Hannah.
SO much has changed for all of us since then. 

I'll get some clear shots 
with my camera in daylight soon,
if I can find the thing after 2 years of non use. 
I was never good at it anyway, and it's old.

You have such a gift Z...really and truly. I love every single touch of Christmas you've added...and, of course, I'm addicted to bottle brush trees. And methinks your tree is perfection...The cotton poofs are such a fun touch. I didn't even have a tree last year...and probably won't again this year...but I can't resist putting up a few white lights on the cabinet top and some outdoors... Something is needed to give a bit of cozy light when the world turns this dark. ~Robin~

So beautiful! I just love how your decor is the opposite of mine and I love them both. I need two I'm looking forward to starting mine after turkey day. Take care, Kit 💕
