Christmas 2010

Finally! All the Christmas decor is up and the computer is working again! This year I really paired down with the Christmas decor, only about one third is up. I don't know what it is but I just can't take all the clutter.

This little tree holds some of the older ornaments and sentimental ones. Its up off of the floor and away from my dogs very dangerous tail!

You can see the "kids" tree that is next to the U.G.L.Y. tv. I let the kids put whatever they want on this tree and don't rearrange it after they decorate it. I will be honest, I do rearrange what they put on the big tree. I know, shame on me! I can't help it.

Here is the simple mantle. Last year that baby was loaded! This year I put up a few glittered village houses and some owls (I love owls!) I think it still needs some "snow". Even thou we have no snow outside in Colorado we will have some inside!
Yes, that is a coffee filter wreath on the mirror. All the "cool kids" were making them so I jumped on that wagon and made one. I love it!

Here is the whole fireplace and mantle. The trio of trees at the base are some of my favorites. I have a thing for trees. Colorful, sparkly trees. I have more I didn't even put up this year. It a sickness, I know. Some people have cats. I am the crazy Christmas tree lady! The stockings were all picked up last year at Old Navy for $.99 each. Love the bright colors. The tiny one in the middle is just a temporary one until we find one for the new addition, the Con-man. And yes, the tv remote lives on the arm of the chair.

Here is the new white tree. It sits next to the couch. Its decorated in reds and aqua. I love it. The Hubs just about had a heart attack when he saw the box. "A white tree, really?" Yes honey, that is what I want this year. Now he loves it! The tree itself was only $38 at Walmart. Its not your conventional Christmas tree but I am not very conventional either so its perfect! Hope your holidays are filled with color and joy! Happy Holidays!
Just a shout out to my four followers....thank you for all your warm thoughts! You make my day! I still can't believe I have followers, and that you live so far away. Merry Christmas!


  1. Your home looks beautiful. Love the blue telephone accessorising with the blue baubles. Love your mantle too. I've got a mantle envy going on! :)

  2. Your home looks so pretty! I love your white tree.I made a white coffee filter wreath too but it did not turn out well... certainly didn't make it to the tour,lol. Maybe I'll try again when I'm not so rushed.
    Merry Christmas!

  3. I have a red and aqua themed tree as well, isn't it such a fun spin on the typical Christmas tree! Of course I have a "traditional" decorated tree as well, but the other one is just to full fill my fun little desire.

  4. I love your feather trees. I bought a green one this year and it was only 15 inches tall. Next year I'm shopping early for one and for it to be at least 24 inches. lol I want a white one for spring. I'll have to go hunting ebay again. :)
