Strictly speaking, these are not alternatives to a traditional tree, but I just had to include them. Those of you who know me know that one of my passions is doll making. This is a special blog post to wish all my friends at Gumnut Dollies, Newcastle, Original Doll Artists of Australia and Art Dolls Only a merry Christmas.
Many professional doll artists like Cindy Moyer like to create Christmas tree themed dolls, using a mixture of techniques and media, publishing their patterns. Others make dolls for their own enjoyment or as a response to a Christmas challenge in a group. The reasons for creating Christmas dolls varies as much as the techniques and the materials.

And the kitsch... remember these toilet air freshener dolls? I guess one's needed even at Christmas?
I am left speechless so I include the wording on the photo as explanation "Just in time to spruce up bathroom for the holidays- a quaint air-freshener doll clothed as a decorated Christmas tree!"
Hope you are enjoying the variety of Christmas trees I have uncovered.... there are a few more which may surprise you ... please continue to count down to Christmas with me.
