Christmas in July

Welcome to a Christmas in July Party.
My contribution to the party is "the Christmas Tree"....actually many Christmas trees!
I've gathered together some tree creations I made last year, and
a few new pieces as well.

Of course, you need snowmen to help with the Christmas trees!

A shiny red pick-up truck is great for bringing home the tree!. 
But a vintage vehicle is even better!! 

Spools & Trees & Sheet Music & Baker's Twine...some of
my favorite crafting supplies. 

Of course, I like to throw a couple non tree creations too. 

Jingle bells & glass glitter are a nice touch with the tree in the shadow box.

These little shadow boxes are leftovers from last year's shows.
I think I might distress them a bit for this year's.

Last year I found a big bag of trees at the thrift store.....quite a deal at $1.91!!

Time to get busy trimming the tree(s)!!

 Now, it's time to get busy visiting all the other blogs
participating in the Christmas in July Party.
The party is being hosted by:
Head over to their blogs and you'll find
links to fun Christmas creations.
A big thank you to each of them for hosting this fun Link Party!!
P.S. There's only about 162 Days
until Christmas!!!

I love how you used all the trees and that is a deal. For $1.91 I would have snagged those up.
I remember you using the red truck for the tree and I love that idea. Have you shown the shadow boxes before? I REALLY love that idea.

Every year I’m having much more fun doing this kind of preparations than I have with the actual celebration! That’s my idea for the Christmas 2013
Christmas Ornaments and I also want to try to make this wreath I think it would look amazing.
I know it’s not coming soon but I’ve came across this post and decided that I definitely should try it. Your jar of Christmas trees is also on my list! Thanks

Your vignettes are so beautiful! That truck is adorable.

Holy Cow, I can't believe you found a whole bag of them! I love how they are so tiny you can glue them to a spool...such mini-fun.

Donna Wilkes said...

Lucky you to find a bag of trees at such a wonderful price. I love your trees on spools with the music.

Amy of While Wearing Heels said...

I can't believe you found a whole bag of bottle brush trees for less than $2...LUCKY!

Scrap for Joy said...

I now have truck envy! Love your trees....cute vignette! I have to visit the other participants. I don't remember seeing your shadow boxes before but they're great.
Nice to think about winter in this heat!!
