Oh Christmas Tree

It's December first today, and that means that the Christmas season has arrived.

We've cut down our tree, and started decorating the house.

We found a beautiful Blue Spruce at a local tree farm.

It's the tallest tree we've ever had - I think it's 9 feet - something I've been looking forward to since we've purchased our old home.

I've been taking my time decorating it. I love unwrapping the ornaments I've collected and received over the years, finding the perfect spot for each one. I also kept the tree slightly sparse. Just lights, my mercury glass ornaments, pinecones for some contrast and a few tiny clay bird ornaments. Oh, and one Robin's nest tucked on a bough in a slightly bare spot.

Everything is feeling much more natural this year. I selected birch covered pots to force bulbs in, strung pinecones from the tree, and assembled some of my nests nearby, and it all feels quite simple.

I love it, and I can't wait to continue throughout the rest of the house.

Happy December 1st.
