Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree!

Oh, how I love the holiday season. Seeing family that you don't get to see all the time, good food, giving (and receiving) gifts, shopping, decorating, and the craziness of it all! Today we went out shopping for a new Christmas tree. We decided on going non-traditional and getting a white tree. Not to mention, it was pre-lit and on SALE. I can never say no to a sale. Sorry. We also bought new, brightly colored ornaments, ranging in color from lime green to red to silver to bright blue to hot pink and purple. I had to take pictures so everyone else could join in on the joy of our new Christmas tree. So here it is!



Isn't it gorgeous? I think so. I love bright and fun colors and this is definitely both. This tree is so me!!



I had to throw these other two photos in. This is a shabby little shelf in our bathroom. I hung 3 silver snowflakes from it to give it a little holiday cheer. I enjoy seeing holiday reminders around the home. It reminds not only us, but our guest as well that the holiday season has arrived. It is upon us!



Since the set of ornaments I purchased was packed fulll or ornaments I took out a few and decked the lampshade. I thought this coordinated well with the tree and sort of tied the look together.

Great tree! I was walking by some trees for sale and I nearly bought them...they smelled soooo good...but then I remembered the clean-up of real trees and just sniffed for a bit longer.

I want your tree! I love those white ones they remind me of the ones everyone had in the 1960's. I like the colorful snowflake decorations too.

Thanks everyone! If I could turn myself into a tree it would be this one! It's just like me, except in tree form of course!
