The story of 10 Christmas trees (trees 4-10)

Now, after the pics of my larger trees, you may be disappointed in these. They aren't as big and full and pretty. But I love the nonetheless. And I still don't have my tree skirts out in these pics, so you'll have to overlook that faux pas.

Drum tree (for hubs, obviously). It's only about 4 feet tall.

White bird tree. I love this one. My mother gave me the tree several years ago, and it is one of those skinny trees with pine cones already on it...the perfect setting for bird ornaments.

Antique ornament tree. I love this one. Those vintage Shiny Bright ornaments are so cool! This tree is tiny. It's one of those small, skinny "alpine" trees. I have it sitting on the hearth this year. Last year, it housed the drum ornaments and was in the foyer.

This is the ornament that says "West Germany" on it. I got it at the antique store a week ago for $1.50!

Kitchen tree. Tiny tree, sits on the wine rack. I just realized there are only two bottles in the wine rack. Makes me look like a wino, and truly, I'm not. ;) Maybe it would look worse if the rack was full. ha

Guest room tree. Tiny tree, sits on the side table. Multi-colored lights make the walls look like they have a weird paint color!

Guest bath tree. Tiny tree with deer ornaments (didn't get close-ups of those). Deer ornaments are funny. Some are ice skating, some have presents in their hooves...all deer are doing something wintery or Christmas related.

Master bedroom tree. Tiny tree. I stuck it in
this thrift store urn that I painted white.

Oh, and just for fun....the "staging area." ha!! And that's not everything! I had more stuff packed away in the closet!

For those who were wondering, I keep all of my trees up in the attic. All of the ornaments are in plastic tubs inside of larger plastic tubs, and they are organized by kind (glass, handmade, wood, drum, dog, cardinal, etc.). I keep these tubs in the guest room closet. Most are so fragile, I don't want them up in the attic with the Texas heat, etc. Plus, I could easily see hubs drop a tub while getting it down. And then I'd have to kill him.

So now you can see why, after doing all of these, I don't have it in me to do more decorating around the house. I have a lot of stuff to use, but I'm tired. I did put a wreath on the front door and on my pantry door. So with the exception of one or two things out here and there, all we have this year is trees.

Love them all! I love the tall skinny trees. So pretty!!

Yes, Gordman's is a store. It is like a department store. I don't know if they have a website or not. You could google it.

Okay, these themed trees are wonderful! And I would be patting myself on the back for putting up 10 DIFFERENT trees. They are so wonderful! I had to show my mum-in-law your cardinal tree bc she just loves them. I think I may snag your dog tree idea. Our pooches are such a big part of our life that I would love them to have their own tree. I have that willow tree ornament that you have. Gosh, so many wonderful things about your trees. I feel like I could go on forever!!

P.S. Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog about my garland and such.

I had to check back in today just in case you had posted the rest! I fell in love with the ideas of being so coordinated. I love the cardinal and vintage trees. Maybe some day I'll do this. I really want a Barbie tree for the little girl inside of me (and my Barbie ornaments of course). But my hubby thinks I'm crazy... lol.

Pencil trees are my absolute favorite! I still think your crazy for putting up 10 trees, but I feel much better knowing that they're not all 9 feet tall.

I love the little trees! I actually think they are, in some ways, more charming than big ones. Yours are all so cute!

AJ said...

I'm jealous. I just don't have it in me to bring out more decorations. Don't even have anything exciting to blog about. Bah Humbug!!
