Rockin Robin Christmas Tree & a Glowing Snow Village
She rocks in the treetops all day long
Rockin and a boppin and a singing this song

Well, technically a flock of cardinals have taken roost in my Christmas tree but I don’t know any songs about cardinals.
My living room tree is all about family ornaments we’ve collected over the years so that means I can do whatever my little heart desires on my dining room tree and this year I’m going with a bird theme (not the Tippy Hedron type birds).
You know I have collecting issues so while one red cardinal ornament is good, a flock of red cardinal ornaments is even better in my book.
The best part is they clip right onto the branches and they’re shatter resistant but look like glass so I won’t have to worry if my new puppy Sushi knocks over the tree!
While the birds are chirping in the treetops, a little snow covered village complete with a red church and blue glittered house is nestled under the tree in a vintage wagon. A blanket of snow glimmers thanks to these very cool ultra slim wire lights that I just tucked beneath the snow. I love that they are battery operated – no ugly cords to get in the way – and they can be set to blink on and off or a steady glow. The wires are so thin that they are almost invisible – perfect for wrapping around branches or nestling inside glass jars.
Why stop at lights on the tree?
My birdhouse gets the royal treatment with battery operated LED globe lights. I love the vintage inspired shape of the bulbs that are set to stay on for six hours then turn themselves off then on again the next day.
Here’s to rocking out this Christmas.

I love cardinals. When my father died and we were at the cemetery, there was 12 inches of snow on the ground. A cardinal swooped down over his open grave and landed on my grandfather’s grave stone. My dad always fed sunflower seeds to the cardinals and when I see one, I feel like he is watching over me. I have several ornamental ones that I keep out all year and more on the Christmas tree. Thanks for posting. I love the wagon with the snow in it and will try that as well this year.
That’s beautiful Charlotte. I know your dad is watching over you – hope you have a very merry Christmas!
Gorgeous, and festive. Lovely flock of birds you got there. 🙂
Thanks Karah – they are very tweet!
Love the wagon & sleigh under the tree. Your tree is elegant but simple too!
Thanks so much Jill – my girls love the wagon!
Love that you have a traditional Christmas tree. It’s gorgeous with the flock of cardinals. Love that wagon and bird house too. Very pretty , Kelly! Happy Thanksgiving!
Thanks Laura and a Happy Thanksgiving to you too!
As always, you blow me away with your creative mind! Love the idea of the lights with timers on them. Ordering right now for some areas that I don’t want to have to worry about and that aren’t near plugs. Problem solved! : ) Beautiful tree with a great sentimental feel. Thanks for sharing.
The timers are amazing Deb – now we don’t have to remember to turn them on and off and we can put them in places where they’re hard to reach and know they will light up every night!
I just bought some of those lights yesterday! Can’t wait to get decorating… the vintage wagon is the perfect “Kelly” touch. 🙂 Have a blessed Thanksgiving!
Can’t wait to see what you do with yours Heidi – let the decorating begin!
What a wonderful idea,love the birds on the tree,the bird houses,and that wonderful old wagon. It is so very beautiful. Have a Happy Thanksgiving.
Thanks Marlene – hope you have a very Happy Thanksgiving too!
