Oh Christmas Tree....

Hi Friends, how was everyone's Thanksgiving? Mine was really nice, just a quiet day with the one's I love the most!

I got the Christmas tree set up last night and decorated it in record time. I have always wanted a flocked tree and finally got one this year.

I decorated it with my vintage pink and silver ornaments this year with a few new mercury glass ornaments thrown in for added sparkle. 

How's your decorating coming along? Almost done, done?

I also just wanted to say thank you to those of you that are still following me after all this time. From the bottom of my heart I thank you!!! I know I haven't gotten back to you much, but I'm taking time for my family first, so just know that even though I may not leave a comment on your blog, I still try and stop by all of your blogs to see your beautiful inspiraion.
Hope you have a wonderful day.

  14. Breathtaking, Miss Melinda!!!
    I've always wanted a flocked tree myself. This apartment isn't big enough to hold a tree, so maybe sometime down the road. I absolutely love all your beautiful ornaments.
    I spy a gorgeous mirror collection in the background, are those new?
    Please call me ASAP, I misplaced your # and have pulled out most of my hair looking for it. lol

  15. Your tree is absolutely gorgeous! I love all the vintage ornaments, (and those oh so beautiful mirrors behind it! Yum!!!). We'd love to have you link up and share it with us at our new linky party that's open now. Hope you can make it!

  16. Wow, Melinda, I love your tree! Gorgeous! I can't say enough how talented you are!
    Have a wonderful night,
