I just couldn't stand it.  I had to do it but, it was so much Fun!!!

My first tree is done here in my little office.  I will show the afters that are now the befores and the new afters . . .

Remember these taken Waaaaaaaaay back in October after I had rearranged . . .well the afters are now the befores.  It's been a month at least and I needed a fresh look for the holidays right?.  And here are the new afters.

and The Tree.....................Before

The Assistant is thinking . . .
Yes, He approves and we are ready to begin the decorating of the Tree.

  1. It's adorable! The white and silver are so pretty and how nice to have your own personal tree!

    Welcome back! I've missed you!

  2. Your tree came out beautiful how could it not, with such handy elf assistant! I love to have something that size for my bedroom, but next year when I redo my room...in the meantime, thanks for the inspiration. Hugs, FABBY

  3. It looks great! The way you used your ribbon is amazing. It is really hard to make ribbon look that naturally bouncy! Beautiful!

  4. That's an amazing tree! We've got one that is similar, but it doesn't look anything like the "after" you did. Great job and Happy Holidays - MMR

  5. Love how your little tree turned out very beautiful! Will be your newest follower, please stop by when you get a chance, Laura - Cottage and Broome
