A Sweet Thought

Wouldn't this little tree look beautiful covered with handcut hearts containing handwritten sentiments of love to and from each member of my family, each handtied with pretty satin ribbon?
YES! It would!
But in a home where the males outrank the females four to one, it's just not going to happen. So this will have to do.***UPDATED to ADD: I found the sweet tree at the thrift store, but you could easily make your own with a branch from the yard, painted white and stuck in an urn with stryofoam or plaster of paris.***

Very cute! It must be hard being surrounded by all those men. I love your compromise though :).

Lisa said...

It's so pretty!

Alas - my cats would have a field day with it...

Kim said...

Aww, that tree is so cute.

Janene said...

That is pretty sweet!
Where did you find a tree like that?

Holly said...

Joy, I would love to visit your home (theoretically; I'm not inviting myself :) ). It's always decorated so beautifully!

Michelle said...

adorable, where did you find the tree at (is it from a craft store or the real thing painted?) - I might want to copy the idea and I am the only girl at my house too.

I bet if you hung some candy from it they'd get into it!!!!

Oh wait. Maybe that is already candy :(

Christina said...

This is very cute. I almost picked up an Easter tree at Goodwill the other day. I should have. My daughter would love something like this.

A family tradition that my Son (now 11) helped me start many years ago when we were snowed in one day. We make hearts for the women in our family. Check out my blog at hartfiel.blogspot.com
Thank you for your inspiration every day.

Love It!
I also want to add, I found your blog a couple days ago. After devouring every post, I now get giddy when I see your blog in bold in google reader. I have a bout 50 projects to do already... but I was looking for a 'tall' accent piece for my living room. This is PERFECT! Thank you!

foxxy said...

I love that idea. Is that chocolate? I'll bet that tree will be empty next time you turn around.

Darlene said...

That is such a cute idea! LOVE it!

Lazy Mom Leslie said...

AndreaLeigh said...

linda said...

I love your Valentine tree! I made one similar for Halloween...my spooky tree. I did just as you mentioned, picked up some tree branches while on a hike, brought them home and spray painted them, and viola!

Karen said...

Girl I am soooooo with you having all men but me!!!! Sometimes they'll look at something and go "huh?"
They just don't get it. Oh well. Granddaughters someday???!!! (Pray for me, and I'll pray for you!)
:) enjoyed the post. HAGD! Karen

Katie said...
