We collect old ornaments too. We bought some at an estate sale, it had a gift tag in it with the inscription:

To the woman that I love more and More each year, from Spence.

We kept that tag and every year, put it on our tree to honor the unknown woman and Spence.


Potter-I think I NEED that kittycat under your tree.

What a fun topic, I LOVE seeing everyone's trees! This year I sprung for a noble fir, I've always wanted one, but they're usually just too spendy. This year, my niece is coming home for Christmas (she'll be here in two days - eeep!) so I decided there would never be a better reason, woohoo! So anyway, this is our main tree in the family room, we have two others, that I don't have pictures of yet; a Star Wars/ice hockey tree that I do up for mu hubby, and a white/candy colored tree in that's usually in my craft room, but this year the guest room to brighten up the space my niece will be staying in. Good times! And, whew! A lot of work!  Grin Tongue

Anyways, my tree!

That's the kind of sweet thing that immediately makes me tear up, I'm such a sap.  Cry

I am so loving this thread! Everyone has done such wonderful work on their trees! The white one especially catches my eye. My family {grandma} had a vintage silver one that I remember as a child. Back when metal trees were allowed  Grin That one reminds me of hers.

I went to pay bills in town today, and the various offices had beautiful ones, too. I spent extra time at the electric company just enjoying all their fancy ornaments. Store bought, but in brilliant colors, and textures. I asked if they had hired someone professional to decorate it, as it had the neatest ribbon garland streamers. Very gauzy and poofed from a top bow {used for the star} and ruffled down the boughs. A wide 4" ribbon, and very lacy. In a bright cranberry red.

They did it theirselves!!! They must have a very crafty sort working there, because I have never seen anything so wonderful. And up close it was mezmerizing. Just thought I would share this. My tree will be boring again this year, but I spend most of my holiday alone, so I'm not going to bother with a whole lot of unpacking of my favorite ornaments. I spend most of my time on my nativity displays. I think I will use my white one in my front powder room this year. Still thinking of ideas to dress it up. It is white porcelain with gold accents, but the counter is also white. Any ideas? PM me, please. I would really like something to set it off.

And a member here shared their twig tree. So I think I will add a Charlie Brown tree in that bathroom, too. You know, the one with just one red ball on it? Those crack me up, and that is the bathroom I wake up to. So that will help keep me in the holiday spirit.

Anyways, I just want to thank all the members here for sharing your wonderful trees with us. And very lovely ornaments that you have been collecting and making and trading.  Grin

Love them all! each tree is so unique and special in it's own way.
I'm still undetermined about what we are going to do for a tree.  We want to get a real one, and do the go out as a family and chop one down thing, but aren't sure just yet. WE've also got 2 fake ones, and one is definitly going in the basement.  The kids will get to decorate that one.
