A little tree


A little tree has found its way into our little house (a lot of "little" here...) A couple of days before the weather turned cold (-17C) I hurried into the woods to find a little tree to place in an old preserving jar (a popular look in Blogland these days). And I do have to admit I quite like the rustic look of the little tree in the old jar.


Speaking of looks... I have had a slight change of heart and have decided to go for a more colourful Christmas this year, as opposed to previous years, and my previous post from our bedroom. More colour has already crept in there. Maybe I will show you another day...?


Not that there is a lot of Christmas decorations about as of yet. I know, I know... I could hardy wait to open the box of decorations, and as of now I am still looking for inspiration. But at least I have got a tree, even if it is unadorned...

What a darling little tree, and a great idea to put it in the jar.
The touches of colour you've added to your home look so pretty Mia - the cushions and the crochet blanket, and the gorgeous log cabin quilt on the table.
Have fun adding your festive touches!

Your little tree is so cute! I have to tell you that I love your denim slipcover on your family room chair. It is so unique and looks like it would be very comfortable. Your colorful afghan lying across the ottoman really sets it off. ~Hugs, Patti

I like colour at Christmas - the rest of the winter is so grey-green over here. The little tree is very sweet - and I may copy that!

Oh, Mia! =] I'm exactly where you are! I couldn't wait and, now, nothing is out, yet. But, I feel so peaceful and am enjoying my work around home that it feels all as it should be. I have such a hunger for simplicity and LOADS of fun and decorations at the very same time - I think that I'll just enjoy the ride - whatever happens.

Isn't it funny how one year, we crave color, another year it will all be very traditional red and white and, then, another year, we'll hunger for simple white and fresh greens, etc.? Isn't it funny how our tastes can vary like that? I've just been thinking about it, is all. ;)

Very much wishing you happy and peaceful winter days! =]

Oh, and just like you - I've been hankering after a little tree, too - but in a galvanized bucket - in my kitchen, too. =]

and, risking looking very silly.... I have one more comment.... I can't believe that I forgot to mention that I appreciate the beautiful, bright, winter light washing your home in your pictures. And, your tree with the roots in the jar - so pretty and simple and festively winter! =]

Sweet little tree, I'm looking forward to seeing what you do! I've just started to pop a few little bits out, hopefully we will put the tree up this weekend! :)x

Sweet and very nice... the tree and your home. I only wonder what is -17º.. Here in Portugal we have 17º and we think is cold...

Mia, it will be a pleasure seeing how you will continue to invite beautiful symbols of Christmas into your always beautiful home.

The tiny tree is charming! xo

I think the little tree is happy to be brought in out of the cold.. will you plant it after Christmas? I look forward to seeing what fun little decorations make their way onto their little branches.

Så koselig hos deg! Her er det ikke pyntet ennå heller, men idag skal jeg opp på loftet, må fyre i peisen først, ha en fin dag hos deg!

I love your blog. Your house is so beautiful, you must be very proud to live there.

I hope you don't mind, I have featured your blog on my 'Bump The Blog' feature that I do each Saturday evening, as I really enjoy reading it.

Hi reader in Portugal!

I promise you, -17C is very cold indeed, as I am sure you can imagine 17 degrees below zero to be. +17C (like you have in Portugal now) is more like our summer temperature (if we are lucky!) As for the cold, I do quite like it, now that Christmas is fast approaching, and it indeed is winter. Enjoy your "warm" weather, though ;-)

Hi Not just green fingers!

Thank you for your lovely comment. Of course I do not mind you featuring my blog in yours. Quite the contrary, it is an honour. I look forward to reading what you write ;-)

HELLO! LOVE YOUR LITTLE TREE!
WILL IT LIVE? WILL YOU SAVE IT AND PLANT IT LATER?
THANKS SO FOR SHARING!
MERRY CHRISTMAS!
