Ohhhh...your tree is lovely. I love a fresh tree but Dh likes the ease of the fake on. I think a fresh one is more fun to decorate!
Love the bottle tree in the cloche and the ornaments in the other one.My daughter did a lot of cloches this year...they are so fun and in vogue!
Your mice are little sweeties too!

Merry Christmas May and hope to see join you with some tag making next year!
