Ah...Christmas! Time for red and green, tinsel and stars. But wait--I didn't want a traditional tree this year! I got to spend seven days in SW Florida a couple of weeks ago and came home inspired to decorate our little tree with a beachy vibe this year. Ideas swirled in my head: starfish (properly called sea stars--did you know that?), sand dollars, painted shells, and various other beach related things--all the makings for a Florida-influenced holiday tree. But, since I don't have a palm tree, I'll have to make do with a faux (a nice way to say fake!) evergreen.
Of course, projects were involved!
