TWO TREES DOWN and TWO HAPPY PEOPLE

Tuesday, November 3, 2009

WITH SOME VERY TIRED LEGS and a BACK that aches a TAD, I have finished my first full TREE DAY! I really do love bringing holiday joy into homes....Before I show you a few pictures from last night and today, I want to share an email (I don't think she will mind) that I received from the gal that we did her tree today. It came just a few hours after I got home.....It MADE my DAY.

OMG!! I know I look like the biggest dork but I am just in awe! I just stare and find things I didn't see before, it is overwhelming and I can't believe it is MY tree!!
It is one of those "why didn't I do this sooner" moments. Brookie loves her tree too! Not to mention all the other things you did, just the placement or whatever.
You just don't know how this has inspired me and I feel like a weight has been lifted!! It's just ridiculous and wonderful!!
Love you!
Pam

Then my dear friend that we are doing tomorrow, emailed me and told me that the day we come every year is her favorite day of the year! Those are the reasons I still do trees! I know I am not going to be able to post every night, but I am going to try and post pictures and tips at least every few days! This was today's tree and some wreaths we hung that really looked beautiful in an already beautiful house. You can click on any of these pictures and enlarge them. I HOPE!

Below is my daughter's tree....I got it finished last night....while we watched Monday Night Football and ate a great meal that she and Micah prepared....plus again we got to see the wonder and the awe in little Jack's eyes as the tree was lit. I wanted you to see the topper up close and how I mixed several colors of the mesh.


Remember there is a giveaway on FRIDAY.....all you have to do is leave a comment or even a question. I have received so many emails. I am happy to give you any tree advice or answer any questions...(for what's its worth)! annah99@aol.com

And just in case anyone EVER thinks I am bragging or whatever...can't even think of a word...JUST REMEMBER, I cannot BOIL WATER! So we all do different things.

I just think what you do is so great. I think when people can fill a need that no one else has thought of, is just cool! Have a great week!

Teresa, I just found your blog last week and became a follower. You are an amazing woman! Everything is BEAUTIFUL! I can't wait until it is time to take my tree out and decorate it! I may have to do some shopping for more ornaments though.

My question is how do you put ribbon in a tree. I've tried it for years and can't get it to look pretty. Have you blogged about it with directions? If you have, can you point me in the direction to see how to do it. I'd love to add ribbon and get it right this year. All your tips are appreciated! Thanks.... I had to put Christmas music on today - just from reading your blog during the past few days *giggle... I am ready :-D

Awesome tree! Very beautiful. I love those ornaments you have pictured with the words on them. Believe...ect.

And you are right, you are not bragging, just sharing what you have been gifted with!

And thank you for that. Thanks for commenting as well on my blog, Coleene

What a lovely email! Love what you did and I can believe that she is looking and seeing different things each time. Love the topper on your daughter's tree ~ would that be difficult to make? I have little {4'} trees in urns I got at Goodwill that I wanted to decorate for Christmas. They already come with white lights on them and I think a topper like that will help finish it off and make it even prettier.

Odie said...

I wish I were that creative!!! I'm lucky if my trees stand up straight!! LOL!!
Absolutely breath-taking. You should do this for a living!!!

SusanD said...

WOW! The trees are beautiful and I love those wreaths. I'm curious about all the mesh you use. I've never seen it before. How do you tie that stuff? Do you use it to top all the trees you decorate? Thanks for sharing. Blessings, SusanD

It's the highlight of each day to check your blog and see what you've created. I am so looking forward to Christmas this year and your blog has a lot to do with that. Your comments have already been so helpful. You've certainly got a right to brag (although I've never felt that you were doing that. You always are so willing to share your wisdom. Braggers don't do that!)because you do beautiful work. I'd love to have been the lady who wrote that email. I'm sure she felt like a princess last night when she walked through her front door! You go, girlfriend!!

Teresa you do such beautiful work-every time i see one of your creations I am in awe...looking forward to the giveaway I have been wanting to win one of your treasures for a while now

Jess said...

Froget what people think about you bragging....I think it's awesome that you know you are good at this and you are confident! And some of us can clean, some of us can type, some of us can cook, but I don't think any of us can decorate a tree like you!!!! LOL

Love it....keep it coming!

Beautiful!

Sori said...

The trees look amazing! I can't imagine working so much onto each branch and working with the ribbon. I am inspired to buy more ornaments and figure it out though.

The Retired One said...

Jane In The Jungle said...

I love your bows...and the colors you use!

Jane In The Jungle said...

I introdeced the Jesus Tree to our kids tonight..they're very excited..I told them a little about you and how you got it started...my oldest son told me on the way home "yeah mom, that would be the perfect job for you, decorating houses for Christmas", I just had to laugh!

Susie said...

Beautiful! Why don't you move to KY so you can decorate my trees for me.

Emily Simmons said...

Your work is as beautiful as ever!!! Does Amanda have any of your talent? My mom is an awesome seamstress but I can't sew a straight line!

nannykim at spindle cottage said...

I think if I put all of that on my old tree it would fall apart; I wonder.....I wonder if you have to have a certain type of tree?

Pat said...

Beautiful! Such a talented person ~

Jerri said...
