christmas ladder

hi..hope everyone had a good weekend!
i found another use for an old ladder...needing something that doesn't take up much space this old ladder makes a great alternative to a christmas tree. easy to decorate with decorations i've collected over the years, tied on with string and ribbon. the tin stars and birds i found recently for $2.50 each inspired the aqua and silver theme here.






peace * joy * love

  40. Hi!
    I just wanted tell you that I copycat this idea. I love your decoration, interior, everything. When I saw this post, I really wanted to have it. I will move back to Hawaii in Feb, 2012 so we are kinda on the way to packing everything else. So we decided not decorate X'mas tree this year. But I wanted something! I finished my work and unfortunately it didn't turn to be cute as like yours. But I still love it! love the idea!! Thank you for inspire me everyday by your post. have a merry X'mas!!
