What, another tree?

Tuesday the weather was wet & wintry. The temperature kept dropping all day so I decided not to venture out to do some shopping I had wanted to do. Believe it or not when my hubby got home from work he announced he was going to go to the mall & do a little shopping! I stayed home because I'm not a fan of trudging around in freezing rain!


Monday I finally finished decorating & fluffing the entire house with Christmas bling. You might remember me saying in an earlier post that my stress was very much over the top & my energy level was at an all time low last year at this time. In fact not one single room was decorated upstairs!

Yes, today I have another Christmas tree to show you! Last year this tree never made its way out of the attic.

This tree is in our master bedroom downstairs. As you can see it's decorated with mainly gold & a few touches of white. There are several different kinds of angels. Click on the picture to see the details better.


I just love this angel!


Here's an elegant Victorian child angel.

Okay, now don't faint, but tomorrow I have more trees to show you! Hope you'll come by to check it out!

I don't blame you for wanting to stay in last night.
When I got off work I had to scrape my car window.

I love your trees and will definitely be back tomorrow to see more.

My husband is sitting near me and I told him I think you're related to one of our friends. She has a beautiful Victorian house and has several trees too.

I love seeing all your different trees...they are so pretty. Don't you just love ornaments with memories? It's amazing how we do remember those special things.

Hi! I'm Grace said...
