The Christmas Tree: part one

This Christmas I decided to put up two trees, one pretty and one fun. We haven't had a fresh trees in years and since this is our first Christmas at home I thought this would be a great time to go big.

So, let's start with the pretty tree. This one is in our dining room and is visible from the street. Charming, right?  Who doesn't enjoy  little tree teaser?  So this one is pretty straight forward:

One pencil slim artificial tree

A few strands of white lights,
an assortment of gold ornaments in different finishes and shapes,

some pint size assistance,

a few ornamental additions from mom and

I would love for you to see it at night when it's at its best but until I get one of those REALLY fancy cameras like my cousin, Janet, you'll just have to use your imagination. There's always the drive by option, too. Just a little reminder.

Hope you're all having a good week.


  1. Love your beautiful "fancy" tree. Can't wait to see #2.

  2. I enjoyed getting the tour from the pint-sized helper!!
