Today at the bakery, I had a guy pop his head in the door and yell “I just wanted to say congratulations!”. I was seriously dumbfounded. I could not for the life of me think of what he was congratulating me for! When I asked what he meant, he said “For your doily Christmas tree! I’ve never seen that before and it’s great!”, and then he scurried out and closed the door behind him!
A bit strange, but you know what? I like my doily Christmas tree too!!
So cheap and easy! I bought a bunch of packs of doilies from Consumer Crafts, but I just saw these at Amazon that would work great because there’s lots of sizes in just the one pack!
The other window at the bakery has a real Christmas tree and I love smelling it every day! Did I ever show you guys the felt tree skirt I made years ago?
I hardly every use it anymore, but I pulled it out for the bakery because it makes me smile! I cut all the pieces out, stuffed the little trees and hand-sewed everything all while I was pregnant with my son 11 years ago!
Speaking of my son… I think it’s official that he is the child of a blogger. When we were decorating our living room tree last weekend, he yelled “STOP!!” and came back with a little sign.
Yes, that’s right. He actually made us stop so he could get a before picture of the tree! Such a strange and wonderful kiddo.
