I was a little late with our Christmas decorating this year, but I am finally finished. I have a lot of pictures to share so I thought I would divide them into a couple of posts. This post is about – you guessed it – Christmas trees!
Our Living Room tree is not prim, but we love this tree. It is filled with old glass ornaments that we have collected over the years.
Our Dining Room tree is my first attempt at decorating a prim style tree. (I shared a little more about this tree in the previous post. ) The tree topper was made by my SIL many years ago from an old quilt – I love it and thought it was the perfect finish for this tree. I love the wooden tag ornament from a friend that says, “Jesus is the reason for the season.” I dried the orange and apple slices and rusted the cookie cutters to use as ornaments.
Our Santa tree – decorated with Santa lights and ornaments and located in our Sun Room (which is the grandchildren’s play room). I found the Santa tree topper at a flea market many years ago. The Mr. & Mrs. Claus ornaments were painted by a friend and my parents brought the old world Santa, made from a piece of quilt, back from vacation several years ago.
A few other small trees around the house:
A grapevine tree that DH and I made years ago. This year I added the rag-tied silicone lights (see A Primitive Place magazine for directions). This is my favorite tree this year – it looks much better than it appears in the picture.
A grouping of trees on top of the TV cabinet.
This tree in the Master Bedroom is styled like an old feather tree, but is actually plastic – I have had it for many years. The ornaments were bought many years ago at a craft show – she had a few old things she wanted to get rid of and I was thrilled to find them. Old – glass – unique shape – RED – a must have item for me! The questionable shape behind the star tree topper is a twig wreath on the wall above the bed.
My DH bought this little bench for me on our antiquing trip to Renniger’s in November. I had seen a greeting card with a picture of a similar bench, with a simple little twig tree sitting on it – so off I went in search of the perfect tree. I found this little tree with the burlap wrapped base last week and it was just what I wanted for the entry hall.
I love Christmas trees – if we had the room I would probably have more. I hope you are enjoying this Christmas season. Thank you for allowing my to share my Christmas tree with you.
