Did I tell you I love trees this year?

Thought I would share some random shots of decorating and a few trees!

This first one I think I showed before but when I was going through some bags (goodies I bought in Lancaster over the summer) I found this picket fencing and these little decorations. This tree is standing proudly on my dining room table.

A little display of ginger goodness I have in the kitchen window behind the sink.

I know this next one is familiar since it graced my header for so long, but see the little trees in the crocks? I sprayed some temporary adhesive and rolled them in snow!

Next up, my weekends work-my new wool feather tree, strung with 2 sets of brown lights also in my goodie bag from Lancaster. Hubby wasn't able to convert these lights for me this time so he ordered voltage transformers and now my lights are working!! He knows me well, not just one transformer arrived, but 5!!! Woohoo, I won't need to hide my other lights then, Ha, but does he know me well or what???

What I would have loved was a crock to put my tree in, but not being able to find them here and not being able to get a wood block cut on Saturday evening, I just had to get this tree finished before bed or I wouldn't sleep! Another hunt around produced a large candle surrounded with cinnamon sticks. Armed with a hot fire and a good poker, my candle became the base and my tree was finished and I got to sleep (or hubby???)

I think thats enough to upload for now but hopefully I shall return soon with some or random shots of decorating.
Thanks again for stopping by, I am sooo enjoying all the inspiration in blogland for Christmas,keep it coming!lol!

  12. Oh girl, I'm right there with you on the lighting/picture issue. I don't know how they make their pictures just right, I can't do it at all. But I think yours turned out great. Some are a little dark, but I can still see your wonderful Christmas. All your decorating is prim perfect, love it all!
