Our Christmas Trees!

How I love Christmas trees!  I remember when I was little, I loved to lay under the tree and look up through it at the lights.  Especially when we had the aluminum tree with the color wheel! 

Yngwie and his friends came over and put up our tree in the living room.  Our ceilings are tall so several years ago we found this 14' tree at an after Christmas sale!  It is quite a bear to put up, but 4 strong college men can get it up in no time and their pretty girlfriends can do a great job decorating!  I made Chili beans with all the toppings and some desserts and we had a wonderful tree decorating party!
This little Elf/Pixie tree is in my kitchen and I must say it is my favorite tree this year!  I love the face of the little elves on it and it makes working in the kitchen even more pleasant.  This past weekend I created a little scene with vintage toys under it but have yet to take a photo.  I'll put that on my ginormus list of things I need to do!

I am in the process of completing a few more handmade Christmas projects and will get them posted soon.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday!

What a gorgeous tree! Do you take advantage of the staircase and loft being right there to hang ornaments?

Linda! So many things to say! Might I have your pattern for the puppy slippers? They would be just darling for my daughter who has come home to live with a very big white puppy. I would be so grateful! My e-mail is Oh my goodness! Your tree is absolutely stunning with the staircase in the background. I also adore your Pixie tree. What a clever idea! I want to thank you so much for committing to my Tag Along for next year. I think it will be such fun. I have just added some examples of themes. What ever makes you "Happy" will be your theme throughout the year. It will such fun to see them all together next December. Again, thank you! Elizabeth

Beautiful tree, but even more beautiful home!

Lovin' your pixie tree. I decorated my entire mantel with them this year! It's like they're peeking out through a tiny forest. :)

Your big tree is magnificent, and the silver true is so charming! I can't get enough of those pixies. Seriously, I can't stop buying them whenever I see them!!!
