How Does Your Tree Stand?

The kitchen tree stands proudly in an old crock.It's decorated with fake gingerbread cookies,
cookie cutters,
glass candy ornaments
and vintage pieces from a child's kitchen set.
The tree in our stairwell sits in a burlap sack
with it's red ornaments and red bead garland.
The tree in my daughter's/guest room
stands a top a pretty plant stand.
It's decorated with all things girly and pastel.The orphan tree in the bathroom window
sits humbly in an old tin can.
The family room tree is in a rusty metal garden urn. It's decorated with ornaments
made or
given to us by family and friends,
as well as the cute toy kind.
The tree in the computer room has been
plopped in a big basket.
It's decorated with stuffed Christmas bears,
felt stockings & mittens and red wooden bead garland.
The living room tree, the largest in our home,
stands on a stilt-like box.
This helps it look taller and
also serves another purpose.
BUT. . . .
you'll have to come back tomorrow to see.

I agree with Astrid...that's a lot of trees! They're all so beautiful too. I especially love the tree in the crock. What a great idea.

Hi, beautiful trees. I love that gingerbread vintage tree....too cute. You have done a lovely job with all the trees.....now one more idea! You should have a small tree that has ornaments on it that all spell "Joy"! Wouldn't that be cute. I bet people would start donating to the cause if they knew you had the tree!!!! Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!
Blessings,
Debbie

I love all of your trees!! They're beautiful. We just half one tree that's only decorated half way down. My 2 year old kept bringing me ornaments from the tree and rather than driving us all crazy by putting them back on over and over again I just left them off. Next year might be the first year (in 5 years) we have a tree decorated all the way down :).

Oh my! I'm sure my husband would love your home. He loves to have trees all around the house! lol...
The first year together after the wedding he bought 2 trees for our first ever Christmas together and I thought it was going to be a crazy living with him forever, lol...
God, and it truly has... lol...

Bonnie the Boss said...

Holy cow how long does it take for you to put up all of those trees? We have one, aren't we the biggest slackers ever?

Spymommy said...
