The Adventures of Cutie Bear (named by my 5 year old) and the Christmas Tree

This year, it has taken me quite awhile to decorate the tree. I just finished wiring on the last vintage chandelier crystal last night...and debating on whether to make paper chain this year.... We have two new kittens in the house, which bring us so much joy, but they also bring us exercises in patience! I have had to actually wire the ornaments on to the you can see in the video, I've done a nice job so far. And only two glass icicle casualties so far this year.
I've been told to squirt the kittens with a squirt gun to train them to stay out of the tree, but I just don't have the heart to do alas, every now and again I hear the tree tinkling loudly in the other room and smile to myself for a job very well done.

In other news, the sale in my Etsy shop is still in full swing until December 1st. I have everything marked at 5% off, then you get another 20% off with coupon code: THANKSGIVING2010

Love and Light,
Cutie at Rest. (Thank God.)


  1. So cute. You did a very good job with the wiring, indeed. Your tree is beautiful.! Have a lovely rest of Saturday and the end of the weekend!

  2. this is so cute and did a good job wiring.we finally decided to give up breakable(mostly) ornaments,went with a more shabby chic look.

  3. oppsa daisy...we do a live tree that would NOT hold up to a cat climbing it!!!!

  4. I knew you were creative, but I've never heard of decorating a christmas tree with live cats!

  5. Too funny! The squirt bottle works wonders, I did have to do that with my kitty and a new chair.

  6. Precious. Loved the video.

  7. This is just too cute! And, of course, at rest.....well who could imagine she is able to climb a Christmas tree??!!

  8. Oh my goodness, the video was cute as it could be. Your tree is so beautiful.

    I'm going to go catch up on all your post. Type to you soon!

  9. Thanks for the chuckle this morning, Jennifer! We, too, have adventures of our own with our little Mia. And the squirt bottle - forget about it! Our cat Oreo ended up loving the spray "bath". :)

  10. I love kitties, so cute! The tree looks gorgeous! Congrats on the new additions to the family. :)

  11. That is so sweet! Reminds me of a kitty we had that bit all the legs off of the gingerbread men we hung on our tree one year...what were we thinking?!?!?
