And I am done!!! With the Christmas trees, that is. This year I decorated 2 large trees and 2 small trees. The most ever!!! At least for me.
This is my favorite tree. Because it's my girly tree. My hubby hates it. Well, he doesn't hate it, he just thinks I have too much stuff on it. How can you have too much stuff on a Christmas tree?
Before we start, I thought you might enjoy a before photo of the tree. It is a skinny tree & is 7 feet tall. I got it at Big Lots a few years back for $20.00. It's amazing what some ornaments and some bling can do for an ugly plain tree.
After the transformation. Isn't she beautiful? This tree is located in our family room. Which is more my taste & decor. Therefore, the girly tree. You see, I am the only girl in my family. So I treasure my girly tree. It's mine, all mine. I don't have to share with anyone else in my family. Except for placing gifts under the tree. And on Christmas morning when we open said gifts. But except for those few minor exceptions, this tree is all mine.
Do you want to see some of the ornaments close up? You know you do. So sit back & enjoy. Let me know what is your favorite. I really can't pick a favorite. I love them all. But I will share with you the ones that are more favorite.
This is a Hallmark ornament given to me by a friend last Christmas. It sits on top of a light. It fits me perfectly. Not that I sit on top of a light, that would hurt, not to mention be a little hot. She is just so sweet, just like me. Ask my hubby. Um, maybe you better not.
I got 3 chenille snowflakes from online last year. The angel ornament I love because it looks Victorian. I can't remember where she came from. I have 2 of them.
I love sparkly and glittery!!! This ornament came from Kohl's, this year.
I've had this unicorn ornament since the 1970's sometime. Did you grow up during the 70's? Did you love unicorns as much as me? I was obsessed with them. I still like them. My mom gave me this ornament.
I just adore vintage looking Santa's. Especially if they are wearing winter white. I got this ornament a couple years ago, but don't remember where. I also have 3 different vintage looking window ornaments that I've had for years. You can see one of them behind Santa.
I got this glittery post card ornament from Kohl's this year. I love that it has a birdie, is glittery & vintage looking. Three pluses in my book. This would be real easy to make, I just didn't want to take the time. I'm basically lazy. And I know myself all too well. I'd never do it, or if I did, it would get done about 2am on Christmas morning.
This ornament came from Tender Heart Treasures a few years back. I love anything that looks Victorian, so I had to get them. These ornaments would also be easy to make.
And as you can tell from the name of my blog. I love stars. I love this one because it is tin.
I love the color of this green star. I picked up a set of four at Dollar Tree this year. Can't beat 25 cents an ornament. And they have glitter!!! I have three of the tin doves. They are almost like little baskets. I got them years ago from Tender Heart Treasures. Or it may have been when they had A Special Place catalog. I miss that catalog.
My son was obsessed with insects growing up. So I was always buying ornaments that were insects. Butterflies have to be the prettiest of the insects.
I love angels and cherubs as well. And glass ornaments. Most of my glass ornaments are on my family tree in the living room. I keep a couple on this tree though. Because they are so girly.
Here is another glass ornament that I keep on this tree. And my letter "K" for Kim. I gave everyone in my family these pearl initial ornaments a few years back. I keep all of them on this tree. The boys in my family were not too thrilled with them. But I love them.
This is a Wendy Addison Eiffel Tower ornament that I got last year. It's Frenchy and glittery. Doubly good!!!
This ornament I picked up at a thrift store. In fact, I found two of them, at different times, at different thrift stores. I love it!!!
I bought this spider web ornament for my bug obsessed son back in the 80's. It sparkles with iridescent glitter. Maybe I should throw some iridescent glitter on the real spider webs in my house. Then they would be in the holiday spirit.
My tree topper is a glittery star I picked up at Dollar Tree this year.
I have quite a few bird house ornaments & birdies on my tree.
Love this snowman ornament. And the church birdhouse.
This white dove has been on my Christmas tree every year for the past 25 years. It's missing it's beak, but I still love it.
I love this ornament as it is not only an angel, but looks like a sugar cookie. Just don't eat it!!! You'd break a tooth.
Now for some random shots of my ornaments.
Tree with lights off
Tree with lights on. When we first put up the tree, it wouldn't light up in 2 sections. We went to the store & got one of those light tester/fixers. You know, the new one they have been advertising on TV? I forget what it is called, but it's shaped like a gun. Anyways, that thing worked great. It fixed the problem in 2 seconds flat. And now all the lights work.
I hope that you have enjoyed my girly tree. I just love to sit and look at it while listening to Christmas music. At least I have a few weeks left to enjoy it. I never take down my Christmas tree or decorations until after the first of the year. That is why all my trees are fake. A real Christmas tree usually dries out before Christmas here in southern California. How long do you leave your tree up?
