Thrifting a Pink Christmas

Hey everyone! It's Christmas Think Pink Monday! 

I've been wanting a pink themed Christmas tree for years, and now I finally have one. 

What I really want is a white tree that I can decorate in pinks and greens and silvers, but I didn't thrift one this year so I'll be on the lookout for next year.

So in the master bedroom I'm using a 5' artificial green tree that we got at a garage sale eons ago. I read and watch TV in the bedroom quite often so I love that it has some Christmas decor.

It's Not About Dollars and Cents

There are too many people not smiling
in this season of joy and of peace.
Some are just too busy buying
to feel what a true Christmas means.

Ornament Exchange Fun

This is the second year that Vicky from Life on Willie Mae Lane has hosted her ornament exchange, and it was such fun to take part again.

This year I received a package from Pam at Virginia Retro.  I always enjoy meeting new bloggers and Pam enjoys vintage things as much as I do. She has an amazing Christmas tablecloth collection that I just love.

Pam sent me a package of lovely goodies in pinks and greens and silvers.

Easy Dollar Store Presents Tree

I love Christmas crafting, and I especially love making trees of all kinds.  I made this Christmas tree out of packages of presents that I found at the dollar store. 

It was so easy to make and only took about 45 minutes. I just love quick and simple crafts, especially at this time of year.
