Wooden Christmas tree and crocheted ornaments!
Remember how desperate I was for the Dutch BOOOM Christmas tree? I must have yammered on about it quite a bit because my wonderful sweet boyfriend came home with a big old wooden pallet on his back and said to 'clear the kitchen because I am building you a tree'. After a lot of sweat, groaning (he said to take out the groaning and replace it with 'listening to heavy metal music' which is actually very true), and sawing (with a handsaw no less) he presented me with my tree. Is there a better Christmas present? Nope. Not a one. I am in wooden Christmas tree heaven. (And a little bit of boyfriend heaven as well, because lets face it, this is quite the sweet gesture)
I immediately yanked out the yarn and got busy crocheting flowers and hearts to decorate my dear tree. I added some vintage rick rack to hang them and love how it turned out. With all the other color going on in my house, including my vintage fabric trees, I love how it is rough and plain looking. The soft white and beige yarn soften it just enough. Just how I had pictured it in my head!
