Christmas Tree...part one

I thought I would share a few photo's of my Christmas tree.

Decorating the tree is always a real labor of love and usually takes me 4 to 5 hours!

I enjoy unwrapping each ornamanet and reflecting on the memories behind each of them.

This year I used my wedding gown as my tree skirt! I live in a Victorian and my Christmas decorating seems to always gravitate to this era...with lot's of sparkle and BLING, of course! The back of my multiple lace teared gown adds to the effect. :)

I hope you enjoyed the photo's of my tree...

I will be posting photo's of more of my favorite Christmas decor ...

Check back soon!

Sending Holiday love to you all!

I just love the idea of putting your wedding dress under the tree for a shirt.

Better than butter(what)?

I use a tablecloth and thought that was creative.

Using your Wedding Gown as a Tree Skirt is a lovely idea. This year I'm using some Vintage fabric that I really like and goes with my Vintage Ornament theme this year. I love your Tree, all the hard work you put into this labor of love shows... and I am SO enjoying all the Christmas photos everyone is sharing in Blog Land!

Christmas Blessings... Dawn... The Bohemian
