Our Christmas tree dressed in its northwood attire. Anyone for a toboggan ride and maybe some hot chocolate and cookies after?
A fun sign found at Target a couple of years ago.
Vintage hockey skates.
Vintage childs skis.
You decide-naughty or nice?

Living in northern Minnesota we decided to do a winter theme for our tree. It is so easy to decorate with most of the items being large it doesn't take much time at all. The garland is grapevine and there are large pinecones, red berries and snowflakes tucked into the tree. It is a little hard to see so I have posted pics of some of the items on it.

Happy Holidays,
