Delightful Discoveries - Pink Ice 12.18.10

My daughter and her family were over last night and we got to talking about Christmas trees. I'm allergic to the resin in pine trees, so we have an artificial tree, but the kids were commenting on how full our tree seemed compared to other artificial trees they've seen. I think the 800 lights and 100+ ornaments and tinsel probably have something to do with that. I don't have a pre-lit tree and probably won't get one when the tree finally needs to be replaced. My daughter on the other hand, does have a pre-lit tree, but they want to get a new one before long, and she said that if she had her druthers, she'd love to get a flocked tree.

Now mind you, we never had a flocked tree when the kids were growing up, but since all of them were born in Illinois, they still seem to have some snow in their veins - and I guess this is part of her pretty well buried in the past memories of her very young years back there. I immediately envisioned a full and flocked douglas fir replete with twinkling white lights, shimmery crystal berries, satiny ribbons, and delicate frosted pink ornaments. (I guess I just associate pink with their family since it seems like she's always loved pink and when the girls came along, everything was pink, pink, pink! Although now with their baby boy, I think that has changed!)

Perhaps one day I'll have a second Christmas tree, and I'll do a Victorian theme with lots of pink and gold and white - and people will see it and realize just how lovely and olde worlde it looks... and how beautifully wintry icy pink is! Until that day though, I'll have to be happy with enjoying lovely icy pink items like these I've selected to share with you today - Enjoy!

Pretty features! ^__^ My family is all allergic to pine, too, so we sympathize with you.

Well, if YOU don't decorate a tree like that Victorian idea, then I'm going to have to as it sounds perfect for the theme.

Thank you for including my bracelet in this lovely and dreamy set of goodies.
