My Christmas Trees {ALL of Them}

December 23, 2011 by 9 Comments

I thought it’d be fun to show you my Christmas Trees {ALL of Them}.  This totally won’t surprise you, after all, I’m a mommy and I LOVE photography!  This is my very favorite Christmas Tree in our house!  Partly because of it’s simplicity.  {There’s nothing fussy about it}!  Partly because of it’s price.  {It was only $10 at Hobby Lobby and I love it’s red base}!  But, I love this tree most of all because each year I have added a framed family picture and now with eleven sweet memories adorning it, I love to sit next to it in the evening sipping my hot tea, enjoying a roaring fire at my feet and get filled with mushy feelings of all the wonderful memories of my sweet growing family!  Eventually I’ll need to upgrade the size of this tree…won’t that be fun when it’s covered with 50 frames {I’m going to need a box of tissues next to the tree at that point}!

For the topper, I tied a slightly unraveling piece of burlap in a bow.  {I wanted to make sure that the tree worked well with my Modern Country Mantle}!

My sweet dog is ready to welcome Dancer and Prancer.  She wants to ask Santa if she can help him pull the sleigh!  As long as she’s home by Christmas morning because we’d miss her terribly!

And here is Little B’s tree.  Her sweet Gigi started her on a collection of dolls when she was little bitty.  We were at a thrift store around Christmastime and totally knew they’d be perfect with a little hook through each of their hats on her pretty white tree!  It’s darling!  She has an assortment of unbreakable balls and some of my old snowflakes on her tree as well!  The balls were from Hobby Lobby and I found the snowflakes at an after Christmas boutique sale for 50 cents each nine years ago.  After Little B decorated her tree, I wrapped her tree with a silver tinsel rope and some pink ribbon.  She loves to keep it lit up in her bedroom!  So sweet!

And at the foot of her tree, one of Little B’s petticoats is the perfect skirt!  Isn’t she sweet!
And here again is the Nutcracker Tree that cost all of $5 when I did a little copycat on West Elm’s nutcrackers for the boy’s tree!
And my “pretty” tree in the front room!  Here’s a link for the details.  Most of my ornaments were purchased at Potterybarn’s awesome after-Christmas sales!
 If you haven’t seen my Vintage Chic Tablescape, here are all the details!
 
I’ll be back tomorrow with my 2011 Family Christmas Letter!  Is that dorky that we still do those!?!  Do you do one!?!?  I just love having a little record of our year’s funniest and sweetest moments!  I’m totally thankful for you, my sweet bloggy friends and I totally am excited to share our family letter with you, too!!!  I hope you are staying warm, enjoying your loved ones and having a very Merry Christmas!!!   XO!

    Hi Aimee,

    These trees are lovely. Thank you for coming over and following my blog. I am really excited to make contact with you. I am in Germany for my first Christmas with my boyfriend and his family-it’s officially celebration day today (Christmas Eve) kicking off after church. Although, I am being greedy and celebrating on both days! I visit Germany quite a lot now; it’s a really pretty place. Would love to know where you went etc…maybe it’s the same region. Anyhoo! I hope you have a wonderful family Christmas.

    Rosie xx
