I have this one large tree in the great room, which is the tree we put gifts under, and then I have another tree that I will share another time. Nothing over the top with my trees just pretty traditional with several varieties of ornaments.
This is the view when you come in the front door.
This is a ten foot artificial pre lit tree and the lights already don't work on the bottom section which meant I had to put lights on the bottom part myself. Ugh!
There are a variety of ornaments. This is one of my favorites. It was a gift when I used to work. I love the vintage appeal of it.
My daughter gave me this one. She knew my love of roosters. Isn't it cute. It is part of the Kringle line.
I have brown, red, copper and gold ball ornaments mixed in. The little yorkie ornament is another gift from my daughter the year we got Miss Bailey. Bailey came home with us on Dec. 7 and boy was I exhausted by Christmas raising a puppy! No, you don't see me in the ornament.
For some reason I am fond of snowmen. I think it reminds me of my childhood when I would get to build a snowman when we were lucky enough to get snow in North Carolina when I was little.
Then of course there are the ornaments made by your kids at school. This is my son's probably from kindergarten.
And this one made by my daughter with the teacher's help obviously.
This is another gift from many years ago. It is a wooden drapery ring with a needlepoint piece glued to it.
Do you remember the old coke ads with the polar bears. I like whimsical ornaments, too.
Then there are the birds and nests tucked here and there.
And some branches with fruit.
Here is the view from the catwalk.
The top is adorned with just a traditional angel. I would probably do something different if I could reach it easily. I do all the trees by myself except a certain someone does pull it out of the closet and put it together.
