My home is very small and cozy, perfect for just my husband and I. Our Christmas tree is no more then 3 feet tall. However, this year I wanted the tree to be BIGGER! Well, when you are short on space and you want something bigger, but you cant go out. You can always go UP! So, that is just what I did. I placed the tree on the top of my old rickety, mustard yellow wooden ladder. I draped a long tapestry runner down the ladder, resting on each step. As I finish my handmade gifts, I plan to place each wrapped package on the steps of the ladder. My Violin playing Santa is on one of the steps. I love how it turned out and cant wait to get my gifts made so they can be placed upon the ladder, creating a pyramid leading up to the Christmas tree. I think my Husband thinks I'm a Kook! As this is not very traditional as we are used to having.
I really need a lesson on picture taking! LOL...... If you can see through the blurr, here's a pic of one of my jewel ornaments. I will have the love of my life take a full view of the tree once I have the presents placed on the ladder.
