Sunday Sketches - Oh Christmas Tree!

It's Sunday Sketch time!
Just a doodle from my sketch book this week - mmmm, the smell of a fresh cut Christmas tree is delicious!
It was so fragrant in my house this past week after we cut down our Christmas tree last week - and this doodle is what came to my mind as I sat down to sketch something for this week's Sunday Sketches!

Happy Sunday to you my friends - Looking forward to visiting you all!~

What a cute "tree hugger"....I love Christmas...the trees, the decorations, the special flavors at Starbucks...Yummm

How fun that you cut your own tree. Our daughter in Oregon just put up a 9 foot Oregon fir... Wow, my little house, can only hold a little tree....but I love it.

Awww, Heather it makes me all warm and fuzzy just viewing your Christmas tree. I currently have four decorated trees in my house but as of this year and last---all of them are fake. Guess I just got tired of vacuuming up the needles. I do have a balsam air freshener in every room so it still feels like Christmas. :-)
