I think I prefer the ribbon on the tree like that, but I forgot to do it this year until after I had all the ornaments on! I should really take a picture of the tree and put it IN the tree box because every time I forget something. I like to do it a little different every year, but I really like the ribbon tucked in there a lot.

I have so many rolls of ribbon from after Christmas sales it's ridiculous.

Haha! My cats used to *love* curling up (well, lurking, actually) under the tree.

My daughter wound the ribbon around the tree and I said, oh that looks good! Too bad the ornaments were already on.

I'd like to attack the Job Lot and Micheals after Christmas sales. I would love to have enough decorations to go nuts on Christmas and Halloween.

I would love to have 2 trees!

For years I thought a Christmas tree looked "naked" without tinsel. Back in the 50's and 60's that was the way to decorate your tree. I finally got away from it and haven't looked back, though sometimes I do miss it

We used to load UP on the tinsel!! And our tree was plastic. We got a real tree a few times when I was a kid, but it was always such a mess. I think my mom enjoyed the fact that putting our tree together branch by branch kept me busy.

One day I'm going to have two trees, one day! I want a small alpine looking tree to put all my S'mores ornaments on that I collect. I guess I don't do it now because I'm always worried about what kind of storage space we'll have in the next few places we live before Mr. Spring retires. In this house we have plenty of room and it scares me that we'll accumulate too much stuff to fit in the next place.

I love seeing everyone's trees!

I always fantasize about having a 'themed' tree. I never get there though.

I'd love to so something in all pinecones. I love pinecones.

Somehow my tree has started going toward a red and white theme, although I never intended it. I always seem drawn to those colors along with lime green. Every ornament on the tree has a story and I buy the ones I have a fit over because I love them so much. A few years ago I was brutal in getting rid of ornaments if I wasn't absolutely in love with them. I've got lots of snowmen on the tree. And I love my disco balls.

We went to a Christmas shop yesterday and I was sad that there wasn't one S'mores ornament to be found. Several years ago I could always find them and get at least a couple of new ones and this year I've only come across one and thankfully I didn't already have it. I think I'll have to start ordering one every year because one can never have enough of them.

I used to do a tree in every room of my house with many of them full size. Whew, it was exhausting. Then I bought a bunch of alpine trees from 1' - 6' and made a forest, with each tree a theme (my favorites were the birds & pine cones and the old glass ornaments). I did this for years. Loved those trees.

springy, the store I always got my s'more decorations doesn't carry them anymore either. : (

Jeep, I'll take that tree in the back corner, thanks a lot!



That's exactly what I'm looking for and maybe if I ever find it at the right price I'll go ahead and get one. So far I've not seen one I really love at a super cheap price. I wish Hobby Lobby was closer, they had one I liked and I'm sure during the right time I could get it for a great price. I love your little forest! I even have a string of S'mores lights for my tree once I finally get it!

I have decided to do both if my trees this year. I have lights on one, but that is it so far. It is color block in purple, green and blue. I am trying to decided if I just want to leave it as lights, or put a few ornaments on it. It won't look as good if it is covered in stuff.

I hope my second tree will be special. I have a picture in my mind of how i want it to look, and I have half the ornaments to complete the look. They are a beautiful light green and some clear blown glass ornaments that are filled with angel hair. They normally go on a theme tree. I will need to buy other ornaments to complete the look. So, If I can find what I need this weekend I will finish.

And I will come back to post pic's

I love those!!

I am a sucker for salt and pepper shakers. I have pottery birds that I use all fall and winter. The salt and pepper comes out of their butt's. It makes for interesting dinner conversation.


PS- I love all the pretty trees!! You have gotten me in the decorating spirit.

cyndi, I have those!!

I seriously wish I could have every single thing they make with those guys. There is nothing else I love to collect as much, they're just so darn cute. I've got a small lamp (it's a ceramic s'more and he lights up from the inside) and a nightlight that are super cute as well.

Remembered I had a picture of the lamp!
