Be sure to check out the features from last Sunday's party here.
Happy Sunday! Today I have the holiday themed trees from the Traditions store and the little tree I finished for my entry. I am gradually bringing Christmas to this house!
Here's my little tree on a Victorian marble-top table in my entry. It's decorated with folk art House of Hatten ornaments and others in a similar style. My mother was a great collector and could fill an entire tree with these.
This is a pre-lit tree in a pot that I got at a thrift shop for about 14.00. It's a very nice one, the kind that probably costs 50.00 or more in a store. It was a happy find! I stuff it with strands of fake ivy and added clumps of berries purchased after Christmas one year at Michaels for about .25 each. I like to add additional foliage to my artificial trees to bring interest. I also like to use a main color in flowers, bows, or berries to give a color anchor for the various ornanents. Here's a close-up:
Now on to more pictures from The Traditions store. Walking into this store is breathtaking. There is so much to see and absorb! It is for me--wonderfully intoxicating! :-)
This store is packed full of trees and decorations for all the major holidays. There is a Valentine's tree with plenty of table top decorations:
A St. Patrick's Day Tree:
An Easter Tree with plenty of table top decorations:
A Fourth of July tree with wonderful folk art decorations:
And one tree to celebrate veterans:
And a wonderful cabinet filled with beautiful decorations:And as if this weren't enough, there is a huge Halloween section with several Halloween themed trees. (I love the framed silhouettes. I am going to craft this for Halloween and maybe modify it for some other holidays!)
(I guess I'll have to return to photograph the Thanksgiving tree and displays--oops!)
And then we come back to Christmas.
