getting into the christmas-tree spirit!










ok, so i'm working on the shop and realizing that not only do i have to get it filled up and functional but also decorated for christmas! yikes, so needing a little kick in the pants i decided to hit the martha stewart site...and before everyone sighs...for holiday ideas you must admit martha really is the bomb! and every now and then a little voice appears whispering "what would martha do?" come on you know it! anyway, even though it's early and i'm not one to rush the season i need to get into the groove for my business. so, as i'm perusing her pages, she has created a thumbnail page by page grouping of eye-candy christmas trees, with great descriptions and traditions explained depending which part of the world she has decorated a tree for. it was fun to flip through the images, read some of the interesting facts and of course gather some inspiration when my normally artistic and original idea-filled brain is a bit spent. do you have a favorite? is there one you could see in your own home or business? hopefully the trees get you in the spirit although early, christmas and decorating does creep up on all of us. have fun!

Martha is the QUEEN of holiday decorating...I have some old issues of hers that have things that aren't online---I've been meaning to scan them in and get them up for all to drool over. How DARE she not archive her every image for our consumption!

I love these all, but something about the sweet, retro sensibility of that first one is really appealing to me right now.

i love it--"what would Martha do?"

i'm guessing you will come up with something really unique, Martha inspired or not!

will we get to see some pics?

i really like 5 & 7...but they're all great choices. i soooo know what you mean about "what would martha do?"!!! afterall, she is the queen of holiday perfection - no one can do it better than martha...can't wait to see progress of the shop!

Thanks for sharing these pix. I have to get a tiny Christmas tree this year (not much room) and these are all quite wonderful! Great post :)
