My Turquoise Christmas Tree

Here are the photos I promised! My tree feels so inadequate compared to all the fantastic ones I've seen in the blogosphere, but it's mine and it's turquoise and I love it. I was worried the two rascals you see would tear the tree up (last year I had a fake tree and Spencer, the orange and white cat, spent his days climbing it to the top). They pretty much leave it alone, aside from wrestling with the tree skirt and drinking the water. Isn't my little Kismet just the cutest?! ;)

Erin - your tree is absolutely darling!

Donald said...

The tree is delightful! I LOVE the kitties too! Cats and Christmas trees may not be the best pairing - but the kitties are so cute when they are sniffing and messing around with them. That is until the whole thing comes down --- like when it actually happended to me. But if it's between the tree and the cats --- the tree is outta here! :)

I seriously think we had the same tree this year. My husband beggd me to do a blue tree, I normally go for gold and red. Here's our tree: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_-ZBGFTxJBWI/SxRNZzivv4I/AAAAAAAAI4I/Q58_keT1dG8/s1600/fall+2009+010.jpg

Your tree is beautiful Erin! I have lots of turquoise on my tree too, of course!
Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and thanks so much for your inspiration!

Your tree is so pretty!

Lovely Scribbles said...

Erin, your tree is darling!! I love everything and the sequined stockings, and is that zebra print on the chair I see? I knew we were destined to be friends! :) AND you have kitties, too! I've always had dogs, but I grew up with my very own Siamese cat, and he looked a lot like your Kismet. What a great pet name!!

Memphis Mary said...

Beautiful tree. I love the turquoise ornaments and the stockings are to die for. Merry Christmas.

Linda at Lime in the Coconut! said...

Great turquoise tree...Ms. Turquoise! But it is the kitty with the turquoise eyes sitting amongst the stockings that steals my heart!

cozy said...

Love it - and your blog too!

Aesthetic Oiseau said...

Gorgeous!!! I love those ornaments you spotlight :)

Emily A. Clark said...

Looks great! Love the chair beside of the tree, too.

Sharon said...

Your tree looks amazing!

Erin @ SYL: Slipcover Your Life said...

Only you would have a cat with gorgeous Turquoise eyes!

Sarah @ Dream In Domestic said...

Erin, you did such a good job! All the little details are so fun and playful (like your cats, I'm guessing) and it definitely screams you from what I've seen from all your posts so far. I wouldn't say your tree is inadequate at all compared to the others you've featured, but it surely stands out because the turquoise you used is so bold. I love it, though! :)

It seems so fitting that you would have a gorgeous Siamese (at least I'm pretty sure) cat with turquoise eyes! Merry Christmas!

Danica said...

This is so fab, Erin! I love the tree skirt and well, everything else. Beautiful!

Carrie said...

the tree is nice but even more i love those stockings. and your cat compliments them so nicely.

I'm Rebekah said...

Just posted my red and turquoise decorations. Can not wait to hear what you think since you are the turquoise queen!! Talk soon!

Esre said...

Gorgeous! The pic of Kismet with those beautiful eyes along with the turq chair and the turq sparkles all around looks so perfect and artistic, it should be your Christmas card every year.
Thanks so much for sharing it!

You did a fantastic job! I love how everything is the same shade...almost like you dyed it all perfectly! Sadly, we didn't decorate this year as Christmas weekend was our moving weekend to a new place! :)
