white pages

Let your fingers do the walking...or your books do the stacking
in the shape of a Christmas tree.
Pages of white or blank books that demand my full attention.
White trees call out to be adorned.
There is something wonderful about all white at Christmas.
Spotted this clever topiary tree made from the white pages.
As a child, I remember making Christmas trees from books.

I am thinking of changing from green to white over here.

Pages of white images keep calling me.

Love this! I don't remember making trees from books - but great idea! That first shot is so clever. And I do love an all white scheme for Christmas!

I too made trees from books. I saw this on someones blog the other day and brought back the memories. I love green, but I also like the crisp of white. xo

I love the book tree. We use white lights to decorate our banister going up the stairs to the bedrooms. It looks so elegant.

Love white. I would love to do a tree almost covered in "snow". Please tell me you are not going to change your perfect green logo.

White makes me think of Bing Crosby and lots of snow. Love that topiary made from the white pages!

Cool idea....I have seen a lot of Christmas decor with music sheets but the phone book is pretty unique!

The white topiary made from the white pages made me think of the huge Sears catalogue we used to get growing up. My brother and I would go through it about this time each year, picking out toys we wanted for Christmas. I feel so old saying that!!!
Happy, happy holidays to you Patricia.

PVE,

The mind of creatives knows no limits! It is sometimes our common sense that forgets to play.

Fun post!
