    One of my favorite Christmas tree ideas! I actually found a small pink tree a few years ago and have been looking for the perfect spot to put it. Congrats on your find!

    I love that tree. I have a three foot pink tree I use in my studio. I love it. I think they can definitely be tasteful.

    So pretty! I love when people do something out of the norm with holiday decorating. Thumbs up indeed. Can you have your husband have a talk with my husband about the color pink being an acceptable color in our home’s decor?

    I was so inspired by that particular cover of Blueprint and I (too) HAD to have a pink tree! About to pull it out and decorate, for the 3rd year in a row! Can’t wait to see what you do with yours!

    I always thought about buying a blue tree, but since we’re now painting the walls blue I’m glad I bought a white one. I can’t wait to see your tree decorated. I love how with this pink tree in the magazine it doesn’t have a bunch of crazy doodads, but it doesn’t look empty.

    I wish my husband were as accommodating to my design desires as yours is. Did you choose one who is colorblind, by any chance? Is that the secret?

    I got ridiculously lucky in November of last year and found basically the same exact tree priced wrong at Goodwill for $3.99! Completely insane, I know- it must have just been my lucky day. We just put it up again: http://img113.yfrog.com/i/br1n.jpg/

    LOVE! My sister has a 2 foot pink tree and I have one of the same size in silver that I decorated in all silver ornaments!
    I’m more interested in that dress. I remember owning that issue but now I can’t find it and I’m pretty sure it had where to find that fabulous garment. :(

    This is one of my favorite of Blueprint’s covers. I put up a little tree in my boys’ room just for them every year, and I would LOVE, when Eleanor has her own room someday, to put up a small tree like this for her. Sigh…
