Oh Karla!! You have the most romantic Christmas home! Everything is just so soft and pretty. I love how all of your ornaments have such special meaning. Part of what the season is truly about :)


Your tree is BEAUTIFUL!

I'd be willing to bet a dollar to a donut that everytime you look at your beautiful tree...you smile out loud. Lots and lots of memories and love hanging from those branches.

Heidi Meyer

Everything looks gorgeous!! Makes me want to get junky and make some ornaments today. Have a beautiful day ~ xxoo Heidi

The tree is so beautiful and with all the memories hanging on it, you must be thrilled. This time of year is so wonderful, isn't it! I love looking at the lights and smelling the fresh greens, it makes me smile.



As usual everything is just stunning. I love the way you mix and match and it always works so well. May your day filled to the brim with beauty and blessings!


Beautiful! Your home looks so magical and so sweet. Grace xoox

I love your decorations - I have always found such great inspiration everytime I read your blog. What do you have in the birdcage under the tree? Is is ornaments and lights? I would still love the chance to win a cuff tutorial.

All is so beautiful and stunning. My favorites are the bottle brush trees in the bottle and baby shoe.

Karla, Your so incredibly talented that you'd never have to spend $300.00 to $400.00 to get a tree like that as you could just easily spray paint/flock it yourslef like you did to all of those cute little primary colored ornaments and it would have turned out gorgeous!!! Imagine how much fun that could be!!!!
Thanks for the cuff giveaway chance to win!!!

You put me to shame. I have not even started!!!
Your tree is beautiful. I will post on my blog when
I finish.


I adore that birdcage under the tree. Beautiful!


Your tree is gorgeous, Karla! I know what you mean about the price of trees! I was lucky and got my white one for only $35 a couple years ago and even thought it's only 6.5' and a is a bit sparse branch-wise, I do adore it! Don't you just love the glow of the white trees when it's lit up? Yours looks so amazing!

Lovely in every way, Karla! But I would have expected no less!

I'm trying to simplify a bit this year, too. At least, that's what I say now!

Susan Reaney

It looks like a magnificent fantasy. You did a lovely job. You always amaze me with the different kinds of things you do...and how well they fit together. Victorian with a touch of whimsey!


Keeping it simple? You're adorable... :)

Suzanne Wingfield

Karla, you have created a magical tree with memories sparkling from the branches. I love it.
Hope that you are not in the middle of the wild windstorms in Southern California. Be safe!
