Not really, I haven't even finished making my Halloween stuff yet. I got sidetracked.
I found a small Christmas tree last week at a garage sale for $2. It was one of those plain little green ones with a wooden base painted in a cream. I thought about my burlap obsession and covered it. I covered the base in vintage sheet music, then antiqued it. I did not take a before shot, because I am always so excited to start a project that I forget to do that. I like the way it turned out, and I will be hanging small vintage ornaments from it as well as old keys! When it gets close to Christmas I'm sure I will take some photos of it all decorated and share with you.
Now back to our regular scheduled Halloween program.
Have a great day!
Chat again soon.

Hi Rosemary,

How wonderful that you are getting a jump start on Christmas.
Love the sweet tree and look forward to seeing it decorated at Xmas with keys and antique decorations.

Happy weekend

Oh, how cute Rosemary, I love the second life you gave to the tree. Also enjoyed the jars on your other post.

It's so cute! Where in the world do you find the time? I definitely need to cut the sleep... need your secret here.

Have a great weekend, off to see what the vintage mag is about on your sidebar.

I love Christmas decorations so much, that I buy them all year long. I sell, out of my booth, at least 100 vintage ornaments each holiday season. I also love those little trees! Have a great Labor day weekend!

What a neat idea! Now I want to find one of those trees at a yard sale. 'Course now that I'm looking, it won't materialize.
