The Humble Tree

Today Mariann is 18th Month old. A year and a half.
I've been home since. I heard some woman that couldn't stand being at home.
Well, sorry for those, but I truly enjoy it!
I wouldn't picture myself going to a job that I don't like, having to drop her and pic her from day care everyday, and doing all the chores on top of that because my studying Boyfriend got LOTS of homework and assignments.
I would truly be burned out.

We did a banana bread.

..Had to run a quality test...


Here is our tree for this year.

I left the first part and stood it on a table. there's a shelf so we'll be able to put the gift there :) (well, the really really really well enveloped ones)
I haven't put any ornament on the first row. Nothing for the graby hands!
I think I need to make a skirt..

Last year we had a huge, natural tree. It was beautiful! I'll post it once I find the pic somewhere on this computer... It had fabric poinsettias, birds, rubans...
All that belongs to my mom. And so does this present fake tree.

But all the ornaments in it are mine. Yay! There's not much. Vintage ones that belonged to my Grand-Mother. A couple of "baby's 1st" including two of my cousin's. A 6 year-old school project from myself (a still looking good apple!) wooden forms and 2-3 bows.
I like it, actually.
But it feels alone!
I haven't put up the other deco. It's for another day...

I'm linking to Reoshel cause I finaly have an holiday thing to show :)

The DIY Show Off


  1. it's still a cute little tree. i love the taste testing pictures. she is too cute!

  2. I like your tree and all the love that surrounds it!
    Merry Christmas.

  3. I want to be just like you when I have my babe. That is the reason why I'm waiting so long (I'm 32, trying to wait until I'm 35). I want to be done with my second degree in Creative Writing and hopefully be published before getting pregnant. That way, I can write at home and take care of my little one. I would die if I have to take him/her to a stranger, although I now that's the norm.

    I love your tree too. I like that all the ornaments mean something to you, and they are not just a bunch of pretty things you got a store.

    Happy holidays! And big hugs to the cute 18-month old princess!
