… & The Tree Is Finally Up!


December 15, 2015 by Terry


I’m happy to say that the tree is finally up!

It has taken a while but we finally got there.  Last year we had a blue, silver and white tree and the kids decided we needed to change it up a bit this year.  We decided to go with all silver, gold and whites mixed with pearls and crystals.


I used both old and some new ornaments.  I did not have a big budget to work with for new decorations so we just added a few.

I find that anything goes as long as it stays within the set color theme.


This year I decided to let the kids have free range with decorating (with the exception of the strings of beaded and crystal garlands) and they did a beautiful job with a bit of guidance.  It’s soooo hard to let go!  After about halfway through some got tired and left to annoy others and me and my tiny helper Precious finished it off.

I would have preferred she didn’t help :) if you know what I mean!



This is how the tree looks lit up at night… I love the warmth of a lighted tree!

Christmas 2015

I hope you are all enjoying this Christmas season!

  1. Your tree is beautiful. The colors are fabulous and goes well with the dark walls. Love it.


  2. I was going to say at the beginning of this post that you must not have a cat Terry because of the pearl garland hanging on the bottom. Then I see your adorable cat further down. Our Rexy would think it was hanging there just for him to swat at. Your tree is beautiful Terry and I love the neutral glitter and glam scheme! Ahhhh, wine and candy – ’tis the season!

    From one Albertan to another, wishing you a very Merry Christmas!!!

      Merry Christmas Marie! I’m pretty sure Precious thinks we set up the world’s greatest play center for her! I’m so happy I went with my gut and tied the tree to the wall … enough said ;) I hope you are having a beautiful Christmas Season!

  4. Love your tree!! I love the mix of silver and pearl, so chic!
    Your cat looks so cute, she reminds me of the pussy on boots with those eyes :-)

Thank you so much Larissa @prodigalpieces for tagging me in today's #trashure fun!  I don't know that this French chair was trash to begin with but it certainly did make its way into being a treasure indeed! This is my most recent makeover!💕#makeover #beautiful #statementpiece #upholstery #frenchchair There are 2 sides to everything and in this makeover too!  Velvety glam on the front and a modern statement in peacock feathers hugging the back!  Soooo pretty! 💕💕#thecuratorscollection #obsessed #sofine #soglam #feathers #velvet #statementpiece #beautiful #makeover #upholstery I am obsessed!! These (there are 2!) might just be the most luxurious chairs I have ever re upholstered! Gorgeous metallics mixed with luxurious fine velvets!  Wait till you see the backside of these chairs!  They will be delivered to their home tomorrow morning!  Can't wait!! #luxury #glamglow #makeover #upholstered #stunning #thecuratorscollection #soglam #sofine #obsessed Okay... here's a peek at the "during" of these two sweet chairs. They were  my client's Nana's chairs and it is my hope that Nana would be pleased with this makeover. #nanaschair #thecuratorscollection #makeover #upholstered #velvet #newlook #soglam #metallic So this is what has been keeping me busy these days... actually there are 2 of them! Without giving away what they look like now I thought I would share what the choices for fabric were first. My client chose the print for the backside and the velvet for the front side with exquisite soft pink velvet for the welting and the arms. I also gave the orange looking wood a glamorous look with some warm silver metallic paint. I hope to share with you soon! I don't want to share the reveal before the owner has had a chance to see them :). #thecuratorscollection #upholstered #makeover #velvet #soglam #mynanas Soooooo this is my current situation.... I'm on sewing machine number three in 2 days and a deadline nearing the end in 4 days! 😬 I SWEAR ITS NOT ME! Lol... hubby is trying to fix mine after bringing me home one from one of his co-worker's wife's ... how sweet is he? 💕huge shout out of gratitude to Mrs. Schafer for helping me in a pinch! 😘🌷#stressfulday #sewing #upholstery #deadlines #sweetpeople #thankyou #gratitude
