Christmas is for the Birds!

Christmas is for the Birds,  on my Tree this year! 

I have to say, it is a Xmas Dollar Tree!  Really just about everything came from the Dollar Tree,  it all started when I was looking for birds and did they have them!

I wanted to do something different this year, I have so many lovely ornaments for the tree, but I was in the mood for different!  Nature and birds was my theme.  I hope you like the tree, I really enjoy it.

 I love Christmas time, even with all the hustle and bustle that goes with it!  I think this has been my busiest one yet,  we went to Mississippi for Thanksgiving, will post about that wonderful trip later!  Did a Craft Show Dec 3rd,  hard work and was not as successful as I hoped!  Shopping, mailing, decorating, and planning for Christmas Dinner!  Oh my!
And I am still trying to finish a quilt for a gift!  I tell myself every year, NEXT YEAR,  I will start in October and by December, just be enjoying Holiday Movies, Magazines, and Baking!  Right, well, we will see in 2012!

The birds, pine cones, and wreath for the top were from the Dollar Tree
they had a package of red and gold pine, I just added a ribbon on them,
and a bag of plain pine cones that I painted the tips white!  On the wreath, I just stuck in some
dry clippings for a nest.

I had some clear bulbs, that for years I was going to craft with. To go with the bird theme,
I added some bird seed and tied a ribbon on top.

I stuck various clippings from shrubs and branches of trees
from outdoors to stick in the Christmas tree.

My tree is artificial so I have some live Christmas tree branches added
to mine, for the pine smell!  Thanks to a friend who trimmed their Christmas tree!
