I undecorated the tree to take it down but I wanted to see how the tree skirt I just made looked on it. I used a canvas dropcloth from Lowes. I used my new ruffle foot for my sewing machine and ran 12 yards of fabric through it in about 2 minutes. I love it. I didn't iron it because I'm just going to fold it up and store it for next year. Then I wanted to see how the new ornaments looked I got on clearence after Christmas. So we put those on. I like how simple it looks. Can't wait to put it back up next year.
Remember the cute vintage tree in the white urn from my previous post. I went to the local thrift store last week and there was a second one!!! I snatched it up fast. Now I have a pair. And for $1.50 each. (The tag on each said $45). I also snatched three of these flocked bird nests on branches for $1 each (tag said $12). I put my glittery Christmas cardinals in them. I also got a bunch of other vintage looking items with the tags still on. The local nursery donated the rest of their inventory to the thrift store the week of Christmas. I'll have to rememebr that next year!!!
