A Unicorn Christmas Tree: They Don't Believe In You Either



Sometimes when my husband asks for "disturbing" unicorn masks to be gotten rid of, what I *really* hear him asking is "Can this be the centerpiece of our Christmas celebration?"

And the answer is yes. Yes it can.

Behold the MAGIC of the season. My attempt at a traditional Christmas tree, keeping to a more neutral palette. I think it's a success.



Disclaimer: it's not really a unicorn. It's a horse with a sword on it's head to guard my hopes and dreams. Something so majestic will ALWAYS be welcome in our home.

  2. While I like the colour grading, I find you very disturbing. Which is also why I like you.

    Merry Christmas and Happy Disturbing Unicorns! x

    1. One of my friends that came over said the same thing. Unfortunately (fortunately?) I've never seen the movie, so the reference went over my head. See what I did there?

  5. I think he's pretty cool. I love how you decorate your tree each year. Always something a little different going on. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    1. "A little different" is the theme of my life. I'm finally old enough to focus my energy on celebrating it rather than trying to make it go away ;)

  6. I LOVE the chalk art, but I think I have to agree with your husband on the unicorn head. That terrified me when I realized it was there!

    1. Then my work is done! :) I'm happy to report that he has taken a liking to it (weeks later), and even has it as the lock screen on his phone because it makes him "think of his silly wife and smile". Deep down I know he would love something more traditional, but after 20 years of my shenanigans, he knows it's not in the cards - HA!

  8. Sounds like you've had one of those NOT so great years. Sorry to hear that but thank you for always bringing a smile to my face when you post. This one made me laugh out loud and some days those simple moments are the very best. Hope 2015 finds loads of happiness your way!
