I may or may not have gotten carried away decorating for Christmas this year: it's a Tony Duquette Chinoiserie Tree! Yes, I went there... it started innocently enough, with a trip to Hobby Lobby, but then again, a lot of insane decisions have been made in Hobby Lobbys. Before I knew it, I was painting starburst shaped ornaments with gold glitter.
And decorating my blue and white plates with "coral".
Even the tree stand is chinoiserie - a little blue and white ginger jar repurposed for the job. I wrapped gifts in a bamboo-patterned paper from Paper Mojo, and bound them up with gold or greek key ribbons.
A view of the tree and dining table (no, I'm not eating there right now!).
Pagodas, lanterns, green tea, chinese knots, lucky kitties, and a smattering of foo dogs...
A few favorite ornaments - a take-out box, geisha doll, and especially the little blue willow plate, found at George Washington's Mt. Vernon gift shop last year.
Have a Merry Over-the-Top Christmas!
Thanks for being here today, Skyla! I LOVE your tree, and really everything about your entire apartment! To see more of Skyla and Sanity Fair, go here.
