I am so excited today to be part of the Christmas Tree Hop being hosted by Angela of Unexpected Elegance.
I decided to share a “non-traditional” tree today!
This year, the white tree is in Peanut’s room, it is her turn.
I wanted to make a tree that would make her happy – but had my “twist” on it as well.
And nothing is more my “twist” than to throw in some vintage elements mixed with new.
And nothing is more her than lots of fun color.
I have collected a lot of vintage glass ornaments over the years, but I have never done a whole tree in them.
The globes are made from stress balls with an ornament hangers looped in.
I had some silver foil reflectors that I filled with map cutouts with glitter details added.
This one highlights some of our favorite places to visit.
There is a small globe at the top.
The garland is made from ribbon with vintage word game letters.
I love the mix of the different shapes, colors and sizes.
I wasn’t sure if I was going to have enough letter so get this far into the song and I was so pleased when I did.
I added a few varieties of “Joy” ornaments as well.
On the cabinet behind, I grouped a few globes and her collections of items her Dad has brought back for her from his trips throughout the world.

Please stop by the rest of the “stops on the hop” and visit their lovely trees!
What about you – do have a traditional tree? More than one tree?
