We got an email over the weekend from a fellow blogger, Elle from Holdfast, who wanted to share with us her handmade Christmas tree. As soon as I saw it I knew I had to share it with you. I love her choice of painting it white and the simplicity of ornaments. It's definitely far from being a traditional tree, but as Elle said, "This year it's all about cutting back on materialistic products and expectations. Christmas is about enjoying family and friends company and I believe my tree still gives without all the accessories." I think that just about sums it up. Watch out Carlie Brown; there's a new Christmas tree in town!
