Tree Skirt ~

I really wanted to make one of those wonderful ruffled tree skirts a la Miss Mustardseed this Christmas, but I ran out of time. So...
 
 
 


...as a stop-gap I pulled out some of my old lace curtains: drapped and layed them and came up with this.


My motto is: never throw away anything lace! You never know when it will come in handy.

 
 I rather like how it looks. And, I have decided that the time to make a new tree skirt is probably in the summer and not in those very busy weeks leading up to Christmas.

 
But for this year this will suffice. So far Miss Twiggley, amazingly enough, has left it all alone!
 
~ Merry Christmas ~

  6. What a gorgeous idea for a tree skirt. Your tree is so pretty. I'm glad Miss Twiggley has left your tree alone. Our two cats have been napping on the tree skirt for weeks. Silly furballs.

  10. love-ly, as always! will the kids & grandkids come over? Eric (& his partner) are coming tonight (on their way to Irvine) to spend the night & have dinner with us! And, our dinner table got larger - a colleague from So Africa is passing through SLO, so he'll join our dinner table tonight (bringing his wife & elementary age kids). FUN!!
