I put a tree on it. Oh yes, I did! I can't get over how adorable toy cars are when you tie a miniature tree to the roof, so I had to have one too.
What could be better to use than a vintage black Corgi car that our eldest son used to play with. I bought a miniature tree and some tiny wrapped presents at the dollar store to use on the car. The tree looks a little large, but the dollar store has sold out of miniature Christmas trees now so I can't get a smaller one. Maybe the miniature family lives in a home with cathedral ceilings and they want a very tall miniature Christmas tree - you never can tell. Did you notice the gifts in the back seat. This family is making all their Christmas purchases in one outing. Very organized of them!
I've been noticing lots of Christmas-trees-on-cars around blogland. Everything from a van to a convertible looks adorable.
And one of my all-time favourite family photo-shoots has a Christmas tree on the roof of a vintage car. It is from the blog Design Mom. They are design-savvy family with six children living in rural Normandy for a few years. Last Christmas they had this photo-shoot taken on a beautiful country road near their home in France. They rented the vintage car for the photo-shoot, but ended up loving it so much that they bought it. You can see other photos here and here.
Have you tied one on yet?
