Christmas Tree 2011

Today I'm joining Sarah for her Tree Party!


Last year, I had the perfect spot for a tree in my old home.  It's hard to beat that!  However, I'm happy with how the tree turned out this year.  I added a few new touches to the tree.


Here's it's new home in the Great Room.  I love that I can sit in the Sunroom (just through those french doors) and see the tree from there also.  I spend a lot of time in the Sunroom!


It is a good ole fashioned tree, with ornaments collected over the years.  While I do have some sets of ornaments, such as the new mercury glass ornaments I bought after Christmas last year for a steal, most of my ornaments are one of a kind.


I brought back a similar tree topper to last year, but left off the bow this time.  I like it both ways.




I've noticed an unintentional theme starting on my tree with mainly silvery ornaments.  I do have the occasional splash of colour in there also =) 

I just adore hanging out by the tree....especially at night when the lights glow magically!
Linking also to my Favorite Parties!

Your tree is so pretty! There are so many pretty ornaments to look at. I always miss the glow of the tree at night after Christmas is over, don't you? I guess that's why I don't feel like I've decorated for Christmas until my tree is up!

Happy Holidays!
