little decorated Christmas tree

We have not yet purchased our Christmas tree,
but I have already decorated the little tree
that sits on the side board behind the dining room table,
our mantel of sorts.

I made all the trimmings, except for the star at the top. 
I was inspired by this advent calendar tutorial from the Graphics Fairy-DIY.
I used the images to make simple rosette ornaments,
decorated with some glitter.

I also sewed a few years ago a sweet ruffle tree skirt,
inspired by this tutorial from Miss Mustard Seed,
I made it out of osnaburg, it is much lighter than canvas,
so it does ravel a lot but it still looks nice.

Miss C. and I strung cranberries on dental floss
to add more red to the tree, I had never done it,
it was something we both enjoyed!

With a die cut machine, we made some silver words (Noel, Joy)
that we placed throughout the tree,
and we called it good.

Now we need to get a big tree to decorate with ornaments
we collected over the years,
no theme or fanciness,
we are an everything-goes-Christmas-tree family!

Happy day!

Coffee, bunny and Easter eggs

Can anyone have too many bunnies, really? OK, maybe, but I am not there yet! I changed my cocoa station from last winter to a spring coffee ...
