Cottage Style Linky Party #22

I'm still celebrating the sparkle season!

This past weekend I went to a Christmas tree farm to cut down my tree.

You can read about my (mis)adventures here.

I ended up with the decorated tree below.

Can you tell I live in a house with cats?

The tree has been up about a day and already the tree skirt is mussed, 

there's a cat bed next to the tree and

there's a cat in the photo.

(Don't let that lazy cat fool you, she's a photo ham!)

I'm sure that if I look around behind the tree I will

find an ornament or two on the floor.

What would my cottage be without a cat or two?

I can't wait till they climb the tree....

Welcome to this weeks 

Cottage Style Linky Party #22!

It's the sparkle season and everyone is sharing the excitement!

Looks like I am not the only one who put up a tree with cat helpers!

Stop by Our Neck of the Woods to see her lovely 

"backyard tree" with its pretty and frugal(!) decorations!

I just adore this vintage cookie cutter garland made with Carol's mothers cookie cutters!

Stop by her blog A Happy Gram to see more of her charming home made garland!

Who can resist a tree so pretty and pink?

The glitz, the glam, the bows, the ornaments...so over the top and I love it!

Stop by Darlene's blog Marias Antoinette to get all the details for this lush pink creation!

Welcome to the party that celebrates cottage charm!

  9. Love your tree and the blue lights. Kitty is too cute! Great guest links :)

  10. Love the blue and the kitty helpers.

    We have four cats, but they live outdoors. They were all strays that we adopted or adopted us by figuring out what time breakfast and dinner are served. I still have one male about 8 months old to catch and get fixed.

  11. Gorgeous trees - the cats are wonderful..Reminds me of when my cat was little - she climbed up the tree - was hard to get her - so much laughter too. I have moved my blog to http://adelightsomelife.com. I appreciate you joining in Home and Garden Thursday -


Thank you!
