Pink Trees Are For Girls-One Month Till Christmas

Can you BELIEVE it?
Holy Cow!
(we say that a lot in 
Wisconsin being as we are
the Dairy state and all)
One month from today
is Christmas.
I am just dragging
out my Christmas stuff.
I love the sweet little
tree that I set up in
the little girls' room.
Bits and pieces from
a blogger friend...
who doesn't want
It sits in their front window
and can be seen from the street.
It makes me smile
when I pull into the drive
after dark.
Don't you just love a
with iridescent bulbs?
Only a month to go
and I have SO MUCH to do!
I desperately need 
to spur me on.
Hey!  It beats vodka!


  1. That is a very pretty tree. This big girl would like a tree like that too!

  2. No Diana, You put the vodka in the coffee:):) I like the little pink tree. I had a white one in a bedroom for a couple years. xoxo, Susie

  7. Thanks for pointing out the 1 month thing! The pink tree is gorgeous!

  8. Love the pink tree! Hmmm, now about the coffee vs. vodka ...

  9. Love your "girl tree"!
    Starbucks is the vodka of the Pacific Northwest. It's been in my bloodstream for nearly forty years!
    Happy one month until Christmas, Sweet D!

  10. Yes, better than vodka. Love all the pinkness.

  11. I go for the vodka. Nice tree. xo

  13. PInk tree......prefect for your little girls. I imagine it lights up their sweet little faces.........Sarah

  14. Diana,
    Your pink tree is soooo pretty. I've always wanted one. I bet the girls in your family love it. I have a small tree with lights that I put fun whimsical ornaments on, and guess what? I have a fairy tree this year hehehe. Who doesn't love a good Starbucks? I'm sipping on one right now. I love Christmas!

  15. I remember when I was in my twenties and newly married I fell hard for the victorian style Christmas decorations. They were all pink and white. Every girl loves a little pink!

  16. I love the pink tree! How pretty! You are so creative, Diana. What a blessing you are to the girls.
    You little stinker--have a great time at Starbucks!

  17. Pretty tree Diana, I just got my Christmas decorations down today!by the way I add the vodka to my coffee lol.

  18. The pink tree is so pretty! Gorgeous! And am loving that pick me up ...

    Hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving celebration!



  19. What a beautiful tree! That is so neat you have one for your granddaughters! Love the sweet and thoughtful ornaments. I bet it's Bailey's you are enjoying in your Starbucks, isn't it, Diana???? I've been getting boxes of decorations out too, hard to believe it's a month away!!

  20. Seems like we had the same idea. Looking good up there. Do you have snow yet? Rebecca called and a friend of hers just moved to Michigan, but not sure what part, and she said the land is covered in snow there.
    My go-go juice, when I really need a kick in the butt, is Mt Dew. Perks me up every time.

  21. oh how lovely is that tree!!
    btw...don't underestimate vodka!!!

  22. Diane, Your tree in the little girls room is beautiful! I don't drink alcohol but the StarBucks looks delicious.

  23. I love pink at Christmas - so sweet and pretty! ... I guess I better get busy breaking out the Christmas tubs. I wish I had a magic wand!

  24. Vodka n the coffee, why not.LOL
    Lovng all that pink goodness, can wait to see all your decor.

  25. Pretty tree..One month!! Hard to believe..

  26. I started on Thanksgiving but still haven't decorated the tree. It won't have a stitch of pink so I'll just keep referring to this post to get my dose! Tell your friend she's got some pretty in pink talent. ;)

  27. The pink tree looks great! I plan to get all decked for Christmas this week.

  28. I love pink Christmas trees and usually have one in our bedroom, but my daughter took it back to her dorm over Thanksgiving break! Hopefully, I'll get it back when she returns for Christmas!

  29. Awwww. So pretty. We are elf ears deep in decorations. My plan to get it all done this weekend has met with defeat - in the shape of pizza. Maybe tomorrow.

  30. I can't believe how quickly time goes by! I say it every year.

  31. Definately Pretty in Pink at your house.

    my family room is done or it was till half the tree lights were out.. oh well as scarlett would say- Tommorrow is another day lol..

  32. Love that pink tree and that sweet little vintage card. I bet it is very special in person.
    No Christmas visible around here. Starbucks is too far away but the vodka is close by. I just have to dust off the bottle.
    Love to you, Ginger

  33. Lucky girls! I've always thought pink trees are great and this year I'm thinking a turquoisey blue and silver tree would be great. Happy Holiday Season! [:)] that's my temporary solution to my No Reply Blogger problem.

  34. A pink that is something I just gotta get...what fun! Enjoy your yummy starbucks...I have been treating myself to a few of these too. xoxo

  35. I haven't EVEN STARTED. Just got home so I have to wrap my brain around it all first. EEEK!


  36. I love the pink decorations! I'm starting on mine tomorrow and can't wait to put up the pink tree I bought last year. It was right before Christmas and on clearance and I didn't have time to set it up so this will be its first year! I have pink candles that I've used before and a lot of white and silver too! I didn't realize you were in Wisconsin! I lived in Kenosha when I was real little but I don't remember it! I do like cheese though LOLO! I agree with you, some sort of coffee libation will be in order! Have fun! Hugs, Leena

  37. Emma has a pink tree in her bedroom. Love it~

  38. Very pretty indeed! We had a "pink tree" when I was about 9 or 10 that my mom used for a couple of years. I have no idea what happened to it! I'm all done decorating. I never start as early as I did this year but this year I broke my own record! I'm sure you will enjoy decorating once you get into it! Hugs from Michigan! Liz

  39. Love the pink tree! Your girls are lucky girls to have a Nana such as you.

  40. So sweet...can't wait to see a picture of the girls in front of the tree!
