Christmas Tree Number One ..Trucks and Trees!

Good morning!
I am starting the tree parade today with this flocked beauty that is a part of the Christmas village.. Who says that dishes can't be ornaments? :)
Last year for Christmas my sister in law ( Hi Doreen) sent me these 4 adorable plates and platter ..I loved them and I didn't want to use them as dishes so they became the inspiration for this tree!
I also added the Rae Dunn look a like ornaments my daughter made me to this tree.. also some aqua balls and plaques are used to decorate the tree..
 I made a new tree topper out of book pages and buffalo check ribbon..

I hot glued a ribbon onto the back of each plate for hanging 
 and a ribbon on each side of the platter to attach to the tree..
 all the ornaments are trucks or campers with trees on top...


 I found the red berry garlands at a church rummage sale this summer and paid 1.00 for a whole box ..there are more I used on our big tree and the garland on the stairs.. for $1.00!


There are some big balls covered with thrift store sweaters..and some white snowball looking garland on this pretty flocked tree!
If you would  like to see what I am up to everyday join me on Instagram and my Facebook page ! I do post on both almost everyday ..Links to my Facebook page , Instagram and Pinterest are in the sidebar .. Hope to see you there ! :)
