2014 Weekly Challenge #51: Give YOURSELF a gift!

Is it just me, or have you spent the last few weeks scouring the planet for gifts?  Gifts for the kids, your best friend, family, coworkers - even the dog gets a gift this time of year.  It is fun to give, and picking out just the right thing is rewarding but...what about YOU?

Happy Holidays / My Silver Christmas Tree + Unique Easy DIY Ornaments

Or gorgeous enough for a lot of words... how about that. This stunner is the 7 foot Tinkerbell Tree from Treetopia and it is the most special tree I have ever seen. It's funny actually because I debated whether to go with the gold or silver tree.
