I swear October and November were each only about two weeks long--and December really snuck up on me. The fact no one in my household wanted to rearrange furniture for a large tree had us decorating table top trees.
This purple and silver tree sits next to the desk in the living room, and when I open the curtains it can be seen from the front porch. Like so many of you, I love purple, so there's nothing but that color gracing the silver branches. The bead garland is too long for such a little tree, but I think the extra adds a bit of interest draped over the cloth.
Next is a one sided tree my mom set on a chest against the wall. Now it's at home on our very narrow mantle. My sister decorated this tree with tiny ornaments and itty bitty LED lights. There's no purple ornaments or lights, but the picture next to the tree has purple. (This is an original made by Cheeta--of Tarzan fame.)
And finally, my little tree at work. I added a few purple ornaments to keep with my theme. No, the tree doesn't have an odd growth.
Hiding behind the tree are a pair of cactus I rescued a couple years ago when work did a plant purge bringing them from the cold outside to my kitchen. I love cacti, and they've healed up and prospered. As much as you can tell a cactus prospers.
My three wee trees and I wish you all the happiest of holidays!
