So cute! Have you checked hallmark stores? It was a couple of years ago, but I think my mom bought them there!

My very fancy, very expensive tree at work.
It was a whole 50 cents from the dollar store. : )

Default Speaking of glitter...

^^ Me either, I looooooove glitter. In fact, for the past several years Mr B has been wanting to get a prelit tree, and we ended up getting a 7 1/2 foot prelit tree with....pinecones and glitter. It isn't tons, it's nicely done. But, yeah, there's glitter here...and there...and over there....

I rekindled my hate for glitter when I put together my new front door wreath on Sunday. That mess was everywhere and I swear I'm still finding it.

I love, love looking at it, but I certainly don't like touching it.

Jeep, I love this little desk tree!
And you made me miss tinsel. I used to put a beautiful, long, white tinsel on my tree, until my dog started eating it. I could not use it again.

Sus811, your tree is very pretty. I love all the lights.

Speaking of lights, mine have been driving me crazy. I bought 2 new strands of LED lights for my main tree but the color is off from the other lights I normally put on my tree. I had to put different lights on. I love them, but it is not loaded with lights. I can't wait until I get my ornaments on Friday and can finish it! I have already scoped them out.

Here is my second tree. I am not sure if I like the ornaments on it or not. It's 50/50. It's hard to see them in the pic, but they bring out the colors in the topper.

I like the color blocking! What a neat idea.

Do any of y'all use LED lights? We tried them for our outside lights a couple of years ago and I hated them. The white lights are such a cold bluish light and not the warm white of regular lights and the color lights just seem so garish. We ended up giving away the LED's we bought and purchased regular again for outside.

Mr B wants to use LED lights but I won't let him for that very reason of the light being too "cold". I like my little bitty Christmas lights to have a warm glow.

Thank you. I have done this tree in the past put it's been a few years. I have had the lights since the late 90's/early 2000's. They are the Crayola Christmas lights. Lol. They came in the prettiest colors.

I have been using LED lights that look like flowers for awhile now. They are not the super cool blue ones, but sadly the new ones I bought are, even though they are supposed to be warm LED. They just started putting those out, but every shade of clear light seems to differ.

Okay, attempt #2 at posting a pic...the app is acting up. This didn't come out very well, but here's a closeup. I'll post another when we've had a chance to decorate.

That looks like a beautiful tree, and I am with you on glitter. My house is currently covered in it, and I have swept and vacuumed. It would drive my dad mad every single time I decorated a tree. There would be glitter somewhere on my face or clothes for months. He kept telling me I was going to lose an eye. lol.

Haha. Exactly. The man loathed that dangerous glitter.

When it comes to other Christmas decorations, I really do not have many. My main focus is the tree(s).

Aside from my 9 billion ornaments I have these, and 3 others I have not gotten out yet.
Oh Christmas Tree!-imageuploadedbycurltalk1354653748.113161.jpg
My church candle holder, snow globe/music box on a pedestal, animated music box with a village scene that plays over 100 songs, and my squirrelly santa gnome

I can not find my animated peanuts ice skating rink and it's giving me a nervous breakdown.

The trees are enough, for me. I don't want to go crazy with other decorations, unlike my mom who has a 8 or 9 foot tree and collects santa's and angels. It looks like Christmas threw up in her house. I love it though.

I need a new topper for my tree! I'm looking for something that lights up...maybe a star? (I'm def not opposed to glitter, haha).

I looked at Target and Marshall's today and didn't see anything I liked. Any suggestions on where to look?
