Merry Merry Pink Wednesday!

A sweet little feather tree dressed in all shades of pink baubles and candy canes greets guests in the (what else?) pink guestroom this year. Ha! Don't you just love the simplicity of feather trees?! Each ornament has its own glory when displayed on a feather tree. I love that!

This little tree is soooo unlike the family tree in the livingroom. That one is just dripping with glass figural ornaments. Well, okay, not exactly dripping.....a wee exageration.....and kind of a weird one at that.....but there are lots! When I first started collecting glass ornaments years ago, we would hit the after Christmas sales and load up on ornaments to fill out the tree faster. Now, however, I'm very selective. 1. Because the tree is pretty full now and 2. the ornament has to have significance for that particular year.

For example: Last year I bought a lovely white frosted glass wedding cake as a reminder of my daughters wedding. Oh, and I can't forget the asparagus ornament! Bill and I discovered our love of steamed asparagus last year too! Okay, so that one is kind of offbeat. It is significant.....to us! Asparagus. Imagine that! ;o)

Warmest bear hugs on this sunny Pink Wednesday! Aleta

I love your tree and all it's pink wonderfulness. The ornaments are to die for... oh how I love old Christmas ornaments and feather trees for that matter.

Hugs,

Hi Aleta,

I love asparagus too. My favorite way to make it is to toss it with salt & pepper and some olive oil and roast it at 450 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Trust me, you will never want to steam it again. Sometimes I squirt a little lemon juice on it after it comes out. Yummy!

P.S. It's also great on the barbeque too!

I love your pink Wednesdays.

Your feather tree is beautiful and I'm sure the dripping tree is too! And of course the asparagus ornament!

Oh Aleta, the things we have in common! You're going to love my tree this year if you like Pink because that's what color ornaments I used (primarily) I love looking into your home. It's like journeying into Wonderland!
