Just for fun

I so enjoy the look of Christmas trees atop vehicles that I have an entire Pinterest board titled "Bringing Home the Tree."  I actually obtained the pattern for that mug rug you see at top right, but of course I've had no time to sew one.  Maybe this winter!

We don't have any adorable vintage toy trucks around our house, so even though I've seen those with trees lashed to their tops or in the back, that wasn't an option for creating my own tree-toting vehicle.  Then Tuesday I happened to notice a metal bank we have in the form of an old pickup truck.  I decided to see if the bottle brush trees I had were the correct scale.  Close enough!  I tied it to the truck with vintage, faded red string. 

I was pleased with how it came out.  Just for fun.


  1. Adorable! Two weeks ago, every other car, it seemed, had a tree atop. It was fun to see.

  2. Thanks, Vee! I love it when inspiration strikes and I can actually do something about it. It came out cute and makes me smile whenever I see it. My granddaughters loved it too.


Thanks for visiting my Christmas kitchen! I love company here in my kitchen all year round, so please leave a comment so I'll know you visited. I will answer any questions and comments here on the blog, so be sure and check "notify me" to see replies. God bless your day!
