    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.

  • Cheryl
    November 28, 2009 at 2:00 pm

    Oh yes, oh yes! I loved that cover and have kept the issue for inspiration/reference. Can’t wait to see your tree! I’m sure you’ll do it proud…

    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:

    Super cool. If i had the right spot for it in my house, i would totally order one. Although… hmm…. with my business name i could squeeze it into my office! LOL

      Six feet tall. I wanted the 7.5′ version, but I thought it might be too big for the room.

    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. :(

      I couldn’t find any info on the dress unfortunately. I don’t know why it wasn’t listed in the credits.

    I saved that issue just because I thought that pink tree was so cool. Blueprint was a great magazine! I hope you post a picture of your pink tree when it is all done and ready.

    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…

    I love this cover! It actually inspired little tree in my bedroom. Also…I have been totally obsessed with finding that dress ever since it came in the mail, and finally did find something similar on By then it was sold out! What a great magazine though. I’ve saved all of my old issues. Such a shame it’s no longer in print.
