Decking The Halls: Tree 1

OK that sounds a little "Cat In The Hat"...Thing 1 and Thing 2. They're not quite that wacky! And, you're probably wondering: "How many trees does she have"? Don't ask. Just kidding. 4. Well 3 that I do, and 1 that the boys do and I'm not allowed to touch. And 2 are little 4ft trees that I got because I liked the idea of different themes. It's the one time I went out early the day after Thanksgiving to get a deal at JoAnn's.

"Tree 1" is my whimsical tree, with lots of red and lime green. I like the quirkiness of Patience Brewster Krinkles ornaments, but *sigh*, they rarely go on sale so I buy them sparingly. This is also becoming the Santa tree where I put Santa themed ornaments:
My favorite ornament on this tree:
When I decided to add more trees to my life, I didn't go out and buy all the ornaments because that would have been expensive and we make things right? So I did a bunch of these beaded snowflakes in my color scheme:

And part of the fun for me is finding deals after the holidays like a beaded garland I picked up at the Restoration Hardware outlet store for 75% off.  Christmas for me also means Teddy Bears and Mark Roberts Fairies:
HELP! A crazy lady has me in a bowl of ornaments. It's undignified!
At least she didn't put me in the bowl, like the bear!
I want Christmas all through the house so this one sits at the top of our stairs.

I love that little elf guy. So cute. Your tree turned out great. I have done 4 trees before, but not lately (smaller house). I do 2 trees now. The real one in the living room and a pencil tree in my bedroom. Used to do one in my son's room, but now that he's in college, not anymore. (I am sending him a string of lights. He actually asked for some lights, so a little me has rubbed off.)

Sorry this got so long. Just had a lot on my mind I guess.

Haha! I love the "undignified" bear. :) We have two trees (one is just a 2 foooter) and I'm sure we will be getting a third before long.

Tree one had me at that perfect ornament. I almost waved back to that cute bear in the bowl. I love seeing other Christmas trees besides my own. Thank you for sharing yours!
