Mackenzie-Childs knockoff Christmas Tree

Last Christmas, after a holiday visit to Mackenzie-Childs in Aurora, NY, I decided I wanted a courtly check Christmas Tree for my kitchen. I have had this tree for about 20 years and I love that there is a bird house in the middle of it. I have always had apples and cardinals on it, but not this year!
I have painted quite a few glass ornaments white and black checks, stripes, diamonds and polka dots and I began to assemble it over the weekend:
There are a few M-C ornaments on there, but most are my designs painted with paint pens and Sharpie markers:
I can't wait to light it up!
Anyone else anxious to decorate for the holidays?

  5. Your tree is gorgeous!

    I'm still trying to get the house clean and in order before I decorate. Hopefully, I'll have most of that done by the end of next week.

    Have a great week, Patti! La
