Welcome To The 48th Masterpiece Monday!

I hope everyone had a great Turkey day! Ours was wonderful as always.
This post is about my laundry hamper and a tour of my Christmas tree! 

 Yep, I actually used my laundry hamper for my Christmas tree base, why not?
I really like the pictures I've seen of using large urns, zinc tubs and clay pots. But this was the only container I had that was large enough.  But you know what? I'm really liking it!
 I weighed down the inside with canned goods, so it's really stable. Here is my seahorse tree skirt I made last year. I like it much better with the wicker basket rather than just hiding the sad little plastic tree stand legs.
 And in keeping with my "Joy To The World" theme, I made some paper chains out of maps. Whew-wee, I've got a lot of maps to use up!
 Here are this years paper map chains mingled with last years mermaids.

 I also clipped pictures out of Coastal Living Magazine and added them to dollar store frames last year.

 I decorated "Old Rusty" too, I also made these beachy Christmas Stockings last year. Wow, I was a crafting machine last year!

I used my noel candle holder this year for a nativity scene.
