    I like "Do You Hear What I Hear" especially the Whitney Houston version.

    One of my favourite Christmas songs is Light of the stable, preferably sung by Emmylou Harris.


    Ohhhhh, I would love these! They are sooooo beautiful. Sigh. My fave Xmas songs are Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy (or anything from the Nutcracker Suite) and a sort of non-traditional pick, Ice Dance by Danny Elfman from Edward Scissorhands. Thanks for the giveaway opp! xo


    Those are so fun!!! Great giveaway!
    I didn't know they were having a bing crosby christmas on XM! I've been listening to Holly since November, I could use 24/7 Bing. :D
    My favorite Christmas song is Sleigh ride by Leroy Anderson! It always puts me in a great mood!

    Oh I LOVE those trees! Great job on those. I loce Christmas songs too and have ben lsitening pretty much right after Thanksgiving! I have alot of faves but have to say that pretty much anything by The Carpenters makes me happy especially The Christmas Song (You now chestnuts roasting on amopen fire---love it) But you know waht I heard on the local college station the other day? AC/DC Mistress for Christmas! It ws so bizarre and awesome at the same time. Chorus goes--I want a miiistresssss for Chriiiistmasss in the typical AC/DC sound. You have to look it up!!

    These are so beautiful! I'd love to win them. I love Vince Gill singing I'll Be Home For Christmas. Twyla


    Those are so cute! I love bottle brush trees. My favorite Christmas song has to be Christmas in New York by the Pogues or White Christmas by Bing Crosby. I LOVE the movie White Christmas. I could watch it over and over again.


    how fun! Lovely these sweet trees! one of my favourite Christmas song is "Bon Natale" by Nat King Cole!
    ps: I'm having a giveaway too!!


    wow these are gorgeous, I'm going to have to spread the news about this cute little giveaway. Only cause its the season of giving, otherwise I would hoard this link all to myself in hopes I would win :)

    I love Christmas music too, it's so hard to choose a favorite. I'll tell you my favorite of the day, its gotten stuck in my head and I've been singing it all day

    All I want for Christmas is YOU!



    I love your little trees!

    I love any Christmas music by Elvis! I grew up listening to it at my Grandma's house so it is very special to me!


    So cute trees, i´m in love!!

    My favorite Christmas song is The Angels Cried.. (I don´t know who is the orginal artist) I prefer it with Jill Johnson.


    Oh! These are SO pretty! I love the colors! Thank you for visiting my journal and your very kind words. So nice to meet you! These days Bing Crosby's "White Christmas" is always playing in my studio...I just love the gentleness of it, why dont they make music like that any more???


    Ohhh how cute! How can we get one anyways? I love love love the turquoise and the pink ones!!


    i love 'o holy night.' i also love 'i'm dreaming of a white christmas.'

    These trees are sooooo cute! They would make a lovely table center piece :) My favorite Christmas song is: When My Heart Finds Christmas, by Harry Connick Jr. It brings me back to Christmas's with my parents >_< ...ohh so warm and fuzzy! Thanks so much for the cute give away.


    Unrelated to this post of yours, if you don't already read the Early Bird Special blog, I thought of you when I saw the project she posted on her blog today:


    OHOHOH! PICK MES! I want one! They are adorably cutesy and my tree is pastels this year!

    Andrea Methvin

    The bottle brush trees are absolutely adorable! Hope I win. It is so hard to pick a fave Christmas tune. Like you, I adore Bing, and I also like Andy Willliams and Perry Como. No one sings like that anymore! I guess my favorite this year is "Do You Hear What I Hear?" I have both the Andy and Perry versions. The whole Charlie Brown Christmas CD by Vince Guraldi Trio is a very close second! (


    Oh yeah, and I know it's a little corny, but I love Jingle Bell Rock. And on the more relgious side, I go for God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.


    These are too cute!!

    My favorite Christmas song would have to be Jason Mraz's version of Winter Wonderland.

    Cindy Gillespie

    These trees are absolutely adorable. My favorite Christmas song is White Christmas sung well by anyone. Have a Merry Christmas to everyone.


    These are adorable! I don't know if I could ever chose a favorite Christmas song, but 'Merry Christmas Darling' by the Carpenters always brings a little tear to my it! 'All I want for Christmas is you' is definitely a favorite as well.


    Dratted it! I made a rather lengthy comment yesterday, and come to find out it didn't even post it. :(

    Anyways, my main points were those are gorgeous!! I picked up a couple glittery ones from Target in their cheapskate section (as I like to call it, and of which I am a whole-hearted member) but those aren't near as beautiful as yours.

    My favorite Christmas song this week (it changes often!) is "I'll be Home for Christmas." I'm really digging the Micheal Buble version right now. It makes me all melty inside, and glad to be home for the holidays, and brings a tear to my eye whenever I hear it.

    My absolute favorite, though, was from a couple years ago. My sister and I got to see Ty Herndon live just before Christmas and he sang O Holy Night acapella. Be still my heart!! I had that cheesy tunnel vision they show in the movies, and had goosebumps from the tip of my toes right up to my hair follicles. It was one of those amazing moments that's so cheesy to describe the only people who "get it" are ones that have had a moment like that themselves.

    Beautiful trees!! My favorite christmas carol is Little Drummer Boy by Bing Crosby and David Bowie. I love anything Bing Crosby at Christmas.
