Pink Christmas tree!

Okay, the tree isn't pink, but every single ornament is. Pink is my favorite color and now that I live on my own again, I can do anything I want with my apartment. This photo shows enough of the room so that you can see that this tree isn't big. I wanted a tree that I (at the height of 5ft 2in or 157cm) could decorate without a step stool or tall person. This is it: my short, dream Christmas tree.

I had to use Etsy and Ebay to find those pink traditional glass ornaments. They're all second hand because the only pink ornaments currently being manufactured are plastic and I didn't want plastic. These are the ornaments and tree I ordered in August and now I'm glad I did. I chose to put my tree up right before Thanksgiving and had everything all ready to go.

I'm finding that now that most of my furniture is red (my dream furniture) it's better to have green Christmas decorations to go with it. I will take my time over the next several years building my collection of Christmas decorations, kitchen towels, tree skirt, wall hangings, etc. I'd love to buy it all now, but refuse to blow my savings on Christmas 2013. As much as I adore Christmas, I think I made a wise decision.

I like the tree! That would be the perfect size of tree for my apartment as well but I failed to put up a tree for about the 20th straight year. Oh well. There's still time! Anyway, I hope you have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Sorry I haven't been able to attend any of your events recently....this has been a crazy Fall / Winter for a variety of reasons.
