It took a few days (lack of preparation on my part), but the tree is finally up and The Croakery decorations are finished.
This is Thor, A Norfolk pine he lives at the top of my stairs
The glow from the lights catches my eye as I walk past the foot of the stairs
I went for a palette of icy blue and frost white for the banister
I used snowflake tinsel, mini glass baubles, paper cut out doves and...
origami cranes, all strung with ribbon
The tree came from a local tree farm, cut down by my own hands. It's a spruce so has prickly needles
Finally up ready for Christmas
White suede doves are strung together on icord
and spell out the word peace
I ended up with classic theme of red and white for the tree
Oversized shiny silver jingle bells gleam in the twinkling lights
A pail filled with candy canes dangles from a branch for guests with a sweet tooth
