Oh Christmas Tree!

 We all had a wonderful Thanksgiving here at Hopscotch Lane! Lots of eating and relaxing. 

Now that all of the pie and leftover turkey is gone it is time to jump right into Christmas. 

So here it is out Dining Room Christmas Tree 2012!




 This is the biggest bushiest tree we have had to date. Last year was our first time in a long time having a live tree. We loved it so much we HAD to get another one and I think this one is just as perfect as last year. Like my bedroom tree, most of the ornaments are handmade. I love handmade ornaments, in 20 years I know I will be so excited to take out each ornament and feel all warm and fuzzy inside with the memories of making them.


 Here's the tree in all of it's night time glowy glory!


Thank you all for your lovely comments on the owl pattern! I am so happy you all are enjoying it! Also if you blogged about your owl please keep the links coming :) I can't tell you how happy it makes me to see all of your little owls hanging on your trees! You can also add your project on Ravelry here if you have the time.

Happy Wednesday!

Wauw!!!This is really a beautiful creative cosy christmas tree!!Here in Holland we firts have Sinterklaas(Santa-Claus)from Spain who brings presents for little kids who believe in him on the 5th of december,and with to adolescents it's something we don't celebrate anymore,so what I'm going to do on this Dutch 'Sinterklaas'night?I'm gonna decorate my christmas tree!!Because decorating a christmas tree before the 5th of december is not done here in Holland!ha,ha,ha...out of respect for Sinterklaas en the little kids who still believe...can't wait to hang my crochet deer on the wall I made two weeks ago!
