Hello, my friends.  I hope you are doing well, knocking out your tasks, taking care of your body and mind, and checking in with friends and family this season.

In line with my last post, I’ve created a new moody theme for my tree decor.  I’m incorporating items I currently have in my stash, making some of my ornaments, and only buying one set that I found at Macy’s (on sale). With ribbon and a few natural elements, I hope to give my tree a more natural and less tinsley look and feel.

I’ve pulled a few ornaments I’ve found looking at Pinterest and a few online shops.  I don’t have everything on this board, but ideally, this is what I envision for my tree.



Tree Topper … CB2
Black Sphere … Michaels
Vintage Bell … Home Depot
Wooden Tree … West Elm
Pinecone … Walmart
Illusion Amber Glass …CB2
Mercury Icecicle … CB2
Marble Dipped Onion … Crate & Barrel
Brown Glass Ball … Macy’s
Finial … Birch Lane

Is it just me? I can’t be the only one who loves to coordinate ornaments for the tree. Add some black and brown ribbon, change the silver topper to gold, and that’s it. Last year my colors were white, pink and black.  In years past, it was only white and silver. At some point, I’ll gift them to my daughter for her tree or help out someone who doesn’t want to spend a ton of money on ornaments.

These simple acts of decorating and curating bring me peace when there are times of turmoil or so many things happening that I can’t seem to have a still moment.  I will admit that this fall has been hard. (Go back and listen to that Unpack post), but I’m trying to make the best of it.
