New ACEO, and A glimpse of my crazy tree

hello friends. Do you see the ACEO painting above? that's what I plan on doing for the next little while, haha!
I went to 3 craft shows the past week. The one in my city had really nice, hand crafted, and more higher end items. I fell in love with a hand painted fox pendant, and thought I'd return in the evening, and point it out to my sister as something she can buy me for Christmas. Well, just my luck, he sold it, as well as many other nice pendants. So folks, when you fall in love with something, you better pick it up right away.

Yesterday we went to another couple of craft shows, and I mostly bought cute ornaments for me 'crazy tree'.
I said I would show you some photos, so I took a few, but you really can't get a good idea of how wild it is until you see it in person. It is quite the spectacle, lol! So here are some pics... I had a hard time getting the whole tree in the photo, it's pretty tall, but this will give you an idea. It is on the hall landing as you walk up the stairs. I have a more traditional tree in my living room.

 I had to photograph it in the day time so you could see some of the decorations. At night it is lit with deep blue and purple lights.

This is a close up of some of the ornaments on the tree. I've been collecting them for years.

This is one of my favorite ornament, it's a masked mouse flashing you, lol!

That's it for today, I'm working on another Christmas painting which has been giving me trouble for the past week.
Thanks for reading!

I LOVE your crazy tree! It's so much fun. :) Your ornaments are awesome. Your owl ACEO is so cute. You did a fabulous job with it. I agree totally about craft shows - if you see something, grab it quick. I usually like to carry a few things around with me (if I can) before making a final decision. We are going to a major show next weekend in search for some beautiful potted pieces. I am hopeful we'll find something awesome. :) Theresa

I am missing out on all the craft shows, I best get myself out there!
Adorable tree you have there.

Micki said...

Love your aceo card!!
I know what it feels like to miss out on something unique at a craft fair, it sucks and it still haunts me today lol ;)

Your tree is crazy lol, we are doing Christmas more low key this year, since we had a big unit built in the front room we can now only fit a teeny tiny tree in there, we decided to go scandinavian minimalist this Christmas we'll see how that works out for us ;)

Hi Betty, so lovely to hear from you. Your Christmas tree is looking wonderful. So pleased your pendants and art is selling really well.
Your right about the youtube information, I've been on a journey firsty for more knowledge and still have questons.
Thinking that life will uncurl the events and waiting is the key, to see if all these stories are correct or not.

I want to make sure that I help people in the right way and with love.

Sending you loads of love for Christmas and the new year.

What an adorable piece! I love how expressive their cute little faces are. Also, I never would have guessed that this was so small! There is so much wonderful detail in there.

Thank you so much for the love and prayers that you sent out to Stellan when he was injured. It meant the world to me and I will always remember what you did.
Much love to you

What a sweet ACEO!

Oh no, I have done that so many times, then you go back and it's gone.

What a cool tree. At least it isn't so wide, probably takes a bit less room then a normal tree!
