Christmas mantel #2

Whilst walking our puppy, I found a fallen acacia branch. So under the arm it went, and it's now our Christmas tree, sitting in an old glass bottle on a desk in the living room. You can have so much fun with the Christmas tree idea once you get away from the traditional tree on the ground (although I am missing the smell already...) Also a good way to keep decorations away from puppies and babies?

This year I've got red, white and aqua on the tree. Since these were taken, I've added some anchor paper cut-outs from an old map so last year's decorations were given a new context. HF.
