My Other Christmas Trees

I thought I’d get in in a few more pictures of my Christmas decorating while I can.
I don’t take pictures of my bookcase for some reason, not sure why.  But here it is, I keep these two picnic baskets on top year ’round. These are actually the ones we used on many family outings and vacations as I grew up. These baskets traveled from San Francisco to San Diego, from the beach to Nevada, and all over California. They’re very special to me.

I also decorated a very small tree and a medium tree in addition to the regular one.

This small one sits next to the couch and is from Goodwill.  It’s actually plastic and was only 3 dollars. It came with the sparkly stuff on the branches.

All I did was add some dollar store ornaments and  I added the “snow” around it’s base.

Here is the medium tree, I found at a thrift for only 12 dollars a couple of years ago. 

It fits perfectly on the hall tree in the kitchen. 

This is the first year I’ve used dried hydrangea blooms on a tree, I think I really like it!

The made the ornaments on it last year.

I decorated this box a few Christmases ago too.

I hope you all have  very blessed Christmas
