Winter Wonderland...little "forests" popping up at my house...

Well, the Christmas decor is pretty much packed away for another year...I really have a hard time "letting it go".  My 5 year old felt the same way... I decided to leave a few "trees" out for her.

Why not?  After all, we live in Minnesota...there's a lot more winter to "enjoy"!!

Complete with snow.

Do you love my little aqua box?  I got it at Marshall's.

I got these white trees there too.  They were supposed to be for jewelry...but as you know, I rarely use things "as intended".  What fun would that be??

Here's another little "forest" on the to my birthday gift from my husband and kiddos...Amazing Grace, How Sweet the Sound.  It's from, so now you know, not everything I own is DIY, thrifted and repurposed "junk".  Gasp!!!  But mostly ;)

And here's my version of the "Funnel Tree"...on candle sticks :)

Sharing this week at...
And now that my house it pretty much back in "order"...I can get busy messing it up again getting ready for this show coming soon...

We did it last year and it was SO MUCH FUN!!!  
If you'd like to see pictures from that event, you can see them HERE :)
Hope you can make plans to attend...I can't wait!!
Have a great weekend,
