Oh, Christmas Tree…..Oh, Christmas Tree

Christmas

aka "The Beast"!  We've had this tree for 15 years.  We bought the first year we were in this house, and had no living room furniture.  We still don't really have living room furniture….and it's a good thing!  This tree takes up the whole room.  It is NOT pre-lit, and has to be put together branch by branch, by branch, by branch.  Did I mention branch by branch?  And then the lights go on.  It really is an almost 2 day process to get the darn thing up.  BUT, it's worth it.  At least in my opinion.  I love how big it is and it makes me so happy to see it in the living room and in the window when I drive up to the house!

I have collected many ornaments throughout the years, and have made a ton too.  This year I added the white/red mesh ribbon that matches the ribbon on my garland.  I ditched the painted wood ornaments I made years ago, and added some silver/red ornaments I picked up at Target.  I have decorated mostly with Red/White/Silver this year. Lovin' it! 

I'm linking up with Sara at Thrifty Decor Chick and her Christmas Tree Party!  Go check out her beautiful tree, and all the others linked up!  Amazing!
