they are all so pretty, mine is fiber-optic and maybe 2 feet tall and really sad looking *hides*

*pulls you out of hiding* there's nothing to be ashamed of, fiber optic trees are lovely

These trees are all so beautiful. 
Mine doesn't really compare but I thought I would share it anyway.

Being young and far from our families we are always traveling over Christmas, so we have never had a tree before (that and until now we've always lived in really small apartments).  So now this year we live in a small house, so we still really don't have room for a tree (and with me in grad school we really don't have a lot of time in December for decorating), but we decided we needed something, so here it is.  The wall hanging is normally on our wall, except that until yesterday its always been naked  Shocked

Let me know what you think of our "Villages" Tree (the tree and ornaments are all from Ten Thousand Villages).

Lovely trees everyone! I especially love the small ones and the white ones. Grin

My husband and I live in a smaller old house and have two dogs and a cat, so a full-size easily-eaten tree is out of the question. Thankfully, we have a bookshelf in the living room that none of the pets can reach, and is just big enough for the Nativity and the new fiber optic tree (got it last year in after-Christmas sales for 99!). However, the gold base is one I found at Goodwill a week ago, and it has a prettier color pattern than the silver base the tree came with.

It's shiny, it's colorful, and I LOVE IT! Grin

The shadows are just as important as the light.

A little 4.5 foot tree bearing the product of several years of craftster swaps.  All done up in silvers and blues

Cute garland with pom-poms, beaded snowflakes, wire snowflakes, hand painted wooden snowflakes, silver balls and little silver star of davids.  Topped with a beaded fabric star

It's our Hannukah-Christmas Tree (or Hannukahmas Bush, or Chrismannukah Tree)


Finally on the Wist Bandwagon:  http://wists.com/OopsCreations

I have loads of good quality CIGAR BOXES available for trade.  Great for purses, shrines, jewelry boxes.  PM for Pics.

They're all so pretty. I`m not totally sure I`m gonna put up my tree this year. Last year one cat puked all over the tree skirt and the other constantly tried to climb it.

So this is my last year at home with my parents. I am getting married next month and moving to Texas. So my parents decided it was important to have a tree to make it 'special. I didn't get too great of pictures, but this is it in two different shots. One with the main lights on and the other just the tree illuminated.

My mother has an obsession with snowmen. So the tree is COVERED with blue and white snowmen, blue bulbs and silver snowflakes. <The snowflakes were my idea because I got them from Target in packs of four for a dollar. Deal? I think so!!>

Not fancy, but eh, who is going to see it anyways?! Haha
