These are two of my post trees, with a birch clump in the middle.  I loaded it with Christmas balls clumped together. 
This is a buffet I purchased inexpensively from Ikea.  It works great against my window as its long and slim.  On it I have an old (heavy!) fish tank filled with wine and clear Christmas balls.  Next to it is a unique iron, rusty chicken feeder.  Behind that is the grates I usually use for my plate chargers.  My friend made the twig tree for me!

Welcome to my home.  This is just a sneak peek of it done up for the Holiday Home Tour I'm in for the Round Barn Potting Co.   Yikes, it's in two days!  What I'm I doing online?  Just checking out all the wonderful things I've been missing from my friends at JunkMarket Style!  Better get back to work!

You are such a wonder girl.

CottageElements writes: Thanks all for the great comments. I love the white trees. They're just so fresh and calming to me. Candy, the wine is in a vintage fish tank which is VERY heavy. I was surprised. Then I filled it with those clear Michaels ornament balls. Juntiqueboutique I think you should definately try the post tree. It definately would make a statement! Thanks, Georgia! If I get everything done, we'll have a blast! I'll be sure to post pictures.

Again, your decor is gorgeous! I really love your window display and am trying to figure out what you've housed your "spirits" in. I love the way it looks.

Thank you for a great idea and the pictures. Posted: 1:14 pm on November 20th
