Feel free to say it...I have lost my MIND!

No really, it is fine. My hubby has said it. The salesclerk at Walmart said it. My girlfriend Candy, well, she just doesn't get it. So, go ahead, shake your head. Ceekay has blogged one post too many. She has lost touch with reality....


All last Christmas I searched for this. I Googled...I luck.

But I found it! and I bought it!

My BLACK Christmas tree! Oh, the and white??, black and hot pink??, black and leopard??, hmmm....don't know yet....

Ceekay's doing the happy, la, la....
***added*** no, the tree is not a Halloween tree. It has red lights. I wish they were white....but the cord is black too. I don't know which way I am going to decorate yet, but red will have to be in the picture! And it wasn't clearance. Regular stock. I see I am not the only crazy blogger out there! I KNEW this would be a hit!!! Now if I can only be brillant enough to decorate it!
**** Thank you, I am feeling much better now. Woo hoo, a whole week without treatment!****

Oohh La La!
I am loving the french them CeeKay. Possibilities are endless. OMG where did you find it? Was it in a clearance with the Halloween or what? I would love to have one. Please let me know.

I hope you are feeling better today. Remember one day at a time. That is all that you can do for now. Take care of yourself.

Your necklace went out in the mail today. Maybe Monday you will have it. I can't wait to see what you think.

Country hugs and love, Sherry

Yea for you, Ceekay! I think you will have lots of fun with this, and I can see a polka dot ribbon on that tree... or, if you can find it at Michael's or JoAnn's fabric, this red ribbon that has black dalmation spots. You could even do a tree for BAILEY! Little faux white bones hanging from ribbons. I can see ALL sorts of possibilities. You go, girl!

Well, since it is black, it doesn't have to be a Christmas tree. You could always add some different lights and not plug the red ones up. I ordered a circular tree from Penney's. I'm hoping it looks good. It is still in the box. They have rotating trees, half trees, pencil trees and corner trees. Can't wait to see how you decorate this one, first.

Sweet Ceekay...

I've seen these little trees done up and they're soooo stinking cute. Maybe in a magazine...I can't remember where, for sure. Can't wait to see what you wind up doing with this little gal...Too bad the little gal at WalMart won't be able to see your creation!

Glad you're feeling a bit better...and that chemo's going after ever dang little cancer cell.......go get 'em chemo!


Connie said...

Speaking of trees....are we from the same family tree? A BLACK Christmas tree?? I've seen icky pink, unnatural white, aluminum foil silver - but black and red?? Hey, you could decorate it with Lincoln High School trinkets...that was there school colors! Black...are you SURE we're related?

Myrna said...

I LOVE IT!! And you will do something FABULOUS with it, I just know it!! ;-)
Glad you're feeling better!

Sarah said...

Ceekay, (I think I've got it right this time. LOL) I've not been at the computer much in recent weeks. Was out of town, busy with personal obligations, life in general seemed to take the time. So I'm trying to catch up and make some visits tonight. Just wanted you to know that you are in my thoughts. I hope this round of treatment is going well for you. I admire your courage and spirit.
Have to say that I really do like your black tree. I'll be eagerly awaiting a post of what your creative spirit comes up with for decorations.
Take care and know that friends across Blogville are keeping you close in their thoughts. Hugs ~ Sarah

Valerie@travelingthrough2 said...

Hi Ceekay,
That is just perfect, I know you love your black and white, so chic. Black and red, very dramatic, oh the options are unlimited! Can't wait to see!

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Ceekay, Oh I love it to pieces. I can see so many ways to decorate it. From toile to tuscan and silvers with red. Oh my!! How wonderful. I can't wait to see how you design your magic on this tree.

I found a pink 4 foot with pink lights for my shabby room. So I can relate to how you feel when you find what you are looking for.
Have fun!!

hugs, Celestina Marie

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Lavender Hill Studio said...

Can you replace the red lights with white ones? Don't they just pop out of the sockets?

How fun is this going to be! You have to make sure you post it decorated. I like the leopard idea!

Pudgeduck said...

I haven't put a tree up for 26yrs! If I could find one that made me do a happy dance I would buy a few!!!!!I buy lots of decorations-just for storage and give to the kids-I get my decorating fix from your blog and other like minded bloggers!!!!!! Thanks!!!I can't wait for you to decortate the black tree! Hope today is better for you!


I have never heard of a black Christmas tree.... I like your idea of animal prints on it:) Have fun with your new treasure.

Yellow Rose Arbor said...

I can't wait to see what your magic touch does for that tree! You will be a trend setter for sure!

Black is my favorite color to wear, and I love black and bright yellow, black and red, black and lime green, black and shocking pink! I'm also working on a black and white photo album with touches of all these colors right now.

No, I don't think you are crazy!

Hope you are having a wonderful day! ~hugs, Rhonda :)

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Hi Ceekay,
I found the wire cloche at a little local gift shop for only $12. I had looked all over for one and then I find it locally! I like your idea of adding a valance, I do think it needs one too! Hope your feeling ok,. Hugs, Cindy

Linda K. said...

Thanks for stopping by WLLF! I was just thinking about you today! I am finally following your blog, we are almost tied with followers. Anyway, please have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Sandra said...

Hi Ceekay! I just wanted to let you know that the spray paint "Oil Rubbed Bronze" is from Krylon and I found it at Walmart. I bought several cans. hee hee!!
Have a wonderful day, my friend!

Rebekah@Red's Nest said...

Oh, Ceekay! I've actually seen a black tree decorated beautifully with crystals, reds and whites - very Frenchy looking. I loved it. I'm so glad you entered my giveaway so that I could find you. After visiting around someone's blog, you feel as if you know them. I think you're wonderful.

A Hint of Home said...

That's interesting. I can't wait to see what you do with it. What room are you putting it in?

Susan said...

Very cool! Cant wait to see what you do with it.

dana said...

I LOVE your tree!!! Infact, our Hobby Lobby has an entire section on decorating with black for Christmas! It's all really beautiful...whites and silvers and pinks and reds and hot pinks/greens!! The possibilities are endless! I can hardly wait to see what you do with yours!

I just caught up a bit on your previous posts....I'm so sorry I've been such a bad visitor, but the last two months have been very busy with my Holiday Sales. I have one more, then I'd done! I hope you're feeling better, CeeKay. You deal with the effects of chemo in the most amazing way....what a trooper you are!

Have a grand week!!! L, Dana

santamaker said...

Wow, now that's a find! I know you will do it up beautifully! At the last Festival of Trees I went to, they had done a "Paris" theme on a black tree. Soooo pretty. Hurry up and decorate it, just can't wait to see it!

Shelia said...

Hi Dear Ceekay! I don't know how I missed your post! Glad to hear your feeling better today. Now honey, a black Christmas tree? This is just wrong! :) Well, I'll let it ride and wait to see how you're going to decorate it. You know I'm teasing you!
Bentley knows where his bread is buttered - in the middle. Chloe Dawn does the same thing.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)
