Merry Mistle Toad Tree

We finished all of our Christmas decorating this past weekend. My two favorite decorations (other than the tree, of course) are new this year.

I've had a white tabletop tree for several years but have never really used it because nothing seems to look right on it. This year as we were unloading our ornaments I was once again amazed at how many frog ornaments we have for our tree. An idea was born and I couldn't be happier with the result. The tree is in our hallway outside of all of our bedrooms, and I love walking up the stairs and seeing the twinkling lights and festive frogs. I thought I'd share some of the frog ornaments.

This was the first ornament Bryce and I got together. My Mom gave them to us and she painted the red lips on the one! Can you see the resemblance?

I like to think that this is my frog alter ego!

My dear friend Patty gave me this ornament when I was taking adult ballet. She's a favorite.


  1. Isn't it fun to add to your decorations! I did some new things this year too.
    Love the frog from Patty!! :)

  2. Adorable! We too have a good many frog ornaments. I saw a lime green table top tree the other day and wondered what i could do with it. I feel inspired...for next year!

  3. It's amazing. I love the white, very elegant. I have a really hard time not buying everything I see with frogs on it. It always reminds me of the Roberts.
