[via mon petit chou chou]
I know it sounds antithetical to be a Jew with a lust for Christmas trees, but don't we all want what we can't have? I've grown out of it to some degree: multicolored lights and green and red tinsel just don't do it for me anymore. Then I see trees like Noelani's of Mon Petite Chou Chou, and I'm right back where I started.
It's really a desire to decorate, not to celebrate Christmas, but I want a tree damn it! It would be white and silver and glittery, and it would look an awful lot like Lani's. It would be a winter solstice tree, and maybe I would even top it with a Star of David to assuage the Jewish guilt. Lani tells me those butterflies aren't even Christmas ornaments; they're magnets from Paper Source.
Holly of Covetous Creatures also went the non-traditional route and covered her pink tree in black ornaments from Ikea. She let me decorate it when I was at her house last Sunday because, apparently, Christians get sick of doing this every year (how?!), whereas I get positively giddy.
[The deer was all Holly, cause she's creative like that.]
