merry christmas.


Christmas is almost here and I've just barely gotten my tree decorated. This year, I am going for that colorful, quirky look I talked about here. I don't believe in perfect Christmas trees or serious ones for that matter.


I combined some cloth ornaments from my childhood, gorgeous antique beauties from Bernadette Breu (paper bells, cotton fruit, and pink mercury balls), homemade paper chains and a paper star. I love having a Christmas tree!


This December marks the 4th year of this blog. It's so fun to know I can come to this space everyday and visit with kindred spirits. Thanks as always for popping in here. Wishing you the Merriest Christmas!

  1. happy so many things, chelsea! your tree is gorgeous in all its non-perfection. and glad you’ve been around the internets for 4 years now. i do love checking in with you ….

    merry christmas and a happy new year,


  2. Wishing I could be close to that beautiful, warm and nostalgic Christmas Tree. I love the old-fashioned paper chaines. Many warm thoughts going your way as you start another year writing your blog. I came on late but I eagerly anticipate opening {frolic} each day!

  3. i love it! i totally agree with how trees should be decorated, and yours looks completely delightful. i love the simplicity of the paper star on top and all the color–you have inspired me to try maybe crocheting some little ornaments and to perhaps look for some pretty vintage ones.
    also! congratulations on four years! i’m so glad you are here, it’s one of my favorite places 🙂
