    Dining room, 7ft slim tree with Santa's ... Hallmark. Also, the garland hanging behind it, House ornaments on it, Hallmark.

    Hallway Tree, "Family Tree" all framed pics of family from great grand parents to our grandkids. 50% Hallmark frames.

    Here is a Closer view

    Son's Football Tree... in the Den... Hallmark.

    My dining room tablescape. Not Hallmark, but I love it. LOL

    Snowmen village... Hallmark.

    Living room tree, 8ft Douglas fir, with 90% Hallmark. (a mom has to put on those special ornaments etc too! But, there is about 500 ornaments on this tree alone! My master piece! :P

    What wonderful decorations. We haven't decorated in a few years. Our youngest Grandchild just turned 10. We have gone to Daugther and Son-in-law's as their Granddaughters, Mom & Dad have come the last two years.

    Thanks for sharing Boom buddy! Very pretty.

    Since you are taking requests (he he). I would love to see a closup of the folded quilts in the 2nd and 3rd pictures...especially the hexagon star one.

    Thank you.

    Is that tree in the living room in front of a door?!? You obviously don't use that door, lol. What do you do when someone rings the doorbell?

    I have three doors, that is my front entry... When we bought the house, we ripped out the sidewalk and a bunch of ugly landscapping and put in all new sod, and we have not yet put a sidewalk in, our drive pulls right up to my wrap around side porch and the door to the kitchen, everyone uses it. And in the winter, the yard has snow and ice... so they use it even more. I haven't always put my tree there, some times it' next to the fireplace, and or over by the stair case. But, I like it there. Dh has warned me, when he pours the driveway and the walkway.. I won't be able to do that any more.

    What makes it nice is that a BIG tree, and ALL of the presents (we have BIG Christmas) can go in there, and I still have my whole living room area for peoples.

    WOW!!! Those are amazing. I even noticed that you change out the pictures on the walls too. You are one dedicated Christmas decorator.
