I think there was a mix up with Sandra's Blogmas list as I see today she did Xmas from her home country. I think on her icons list this was her order but on the original order list she put out Christmas tree reveal was next so that's what I had already done my post on. I don't really have a home country to share so I will just keep my reveal today and will share it again another day if needed.
I just love Christmas trees! They are such fun to be creative with and decorate in many different styles. I LOVE a real Christmas tree - the look, that wonderful smell!! However, several years ago when we still had kitties...they would obsess over the tree and wouldn't leave it alone, drank all the water all the time and made the tree smell like, well CAT. So I found an artificial I really liked and we switched and it's been so CLEAN and convenient ever since we never went back (even though both my kitties are in heaven now).
I can't wait to go around and see everyone's trees later but I'll get to sharing mine:
I have 2 trees. I started this tradition in the past few years as I decided that I wanted more of theme tree to my décor and colors in the more formal upstairs living room. However, we hang out in the media room (where the big t.v. is- Lol) quite a bit so I added a tree down there and that one could then have all of our usual traditional memory ornaments through the years. This was a pic of my living room tree I took a few weeks ago.
This is what it looks like today:
Getting loaded with lots of gifts for many different family members. And if you look in the background you'll see this happened yesterday:
We got a nice coating of some pretty snow covering everything again - so we're back to a world of white!
Here's some pics of it at night:
I like doing this tree with woodland accents, brown and gold ribbon, cream flowers and all of those kinds of colors that match my home décor.
Here's a few favorite ornaments:
My Little Polish Girl
My Dragonfly ornaments
These pics show some of the flowers I use in the tree. I love how realistic the branches look on this tree.
Now for the downstairs tree. I'll also show you a few decorations from that room since I didn't get to yesterday.
These are some daylight photos, and this room is on a lower level of the house so it's not quite a basement but you can see ground level from part of it. This tree is so fun to decorate with the kiddos as we go down memory lane over every ornament! So fun!
Here's some night time pics of this tree:
These are views from my comfy leather recliner! Lol
Here's a few other decorations from around the media room:
I love this angel decoration! The colors of her dress swirl around and change colors:
I never really got into collecting a village of any kind. These were gifted to me and I like to use them in the window sills of the small windows down there. I never collected any extra pieces though.
So those are my Christmas trees to reveal!! I will end with a full shot of my kitchen and living room as I had happened to take a couple like that and will give you even more of a peek of my cozy north woods cottage.
Sending you warmest Christmas wishes! I can't wait to see everyone else's trees today.
