A Believe Tree

A few weeks ago, when Paul and I went away for Thanksgiving, we browsed around Tweed, Ontario and discovered Home Tweed Home. This store sells a selection of gifts and I was in my element browsing around their shop. My attention was drawn to the Christmas corner, where I discovered a little tree sitting on the shelf ~ A Believe Tree.

How could a girl resist such a cute little tree? It came already decorated with snowmen and tiny parcels wrapped in tinsel; a star at the top and a little embroidery at the base.

Just perfect! I thought that I was being highly organized buying Christmas ornaments so early, but I have done very little in the way of preparation since. I hardly have a minute to spare these days and there aren't enough hours in the day ~ even on the days when I am up at 5 a.m.

I did manage to write some Christmas cards and they made it into the box on time yesterday to catch the last mailing date for the U.K. Hopefully, my family and friends will actually receive a card this year; even if I don't manage to send anything else before the big day.

Anyway, I am sure that Father Christmas will put in an appearance whether I am ready or not ~ after all, I BELIEVE!

I BELIEVE too! Santa is real!

I love your Believe tree. And my what a shop you found! I think you could easily be lost in the wonder of the pretty items. This little goose feather tree is now prettying up your home so perfectly.

I hope you give yourself the gift of time in the coming weeks.

Your "Believe" tree is adorable, Marie! I can see why you couldn't resist it. I'm just catching up on your most recent posts ... the little ballerina polar bear is so cute! Now wonder Jessica loved it!! I'm glad your sister liked her scarf (see how far behind I am???) Have a great weekend, dear friend! ~ hugs, Lynda xo
