The main tree

So I finally finished the main tree # 5. Thank goodness the other 4 are small 3 footers.

This one is also all red and green. The traditional is the way to go for us. Doesn't mean I can't and won't appreciate other colored ones. The tree top Santa is a garage sale find. I bought him for I think $1.00. I knew when I saw him he would be a focal point and that he is. He is beautiful in person. We buy different things every year to keep adding to the tree. This year we found a warehouse and bought a bunch of different items. The smaller elves, the white sprays with the sparkly balls, the red and green twisty things (don't know what they are called), and some other items are all new. I have the big elf I put every year and when I saw the small ones I decided to incorporate them as well.

These are some of the pictures I took this morning.

 Love that large elf. He is a favorite of mine. I am hoping I could find another one but with the reds and greens reversed.
 This is the other picture frame of Santa I bought last year. He has a beautiful face. I think most Santa's have beautiful faces. I am a sucker for Santa Clause's. It says believe and I love how he is holding his glasses. Notice one of the elves I bought this year. I bought 4 this size and 4 smaller ones.
 This is the Santa head I mentioned that I bought at a garage sale. You could also see the smaller elf next to him and the red and green sprays and the white balls sprays.
 We will be going out to buy another tree skirt. I have not found the one I really like, so until then this will have to do.
Here is the whole tree with the lights on. I know pictures don't really do justice to the tree, but I thought I would share anyhow.

Hope you all like it and can't wait to see how you all decorate. Leave me a comment so that I can go to your blogs and see your decorations.

I will be back during the week to post some new pin cushions I have made.

Have a great weekend.

Love all the traditional colors you used. Wow a new tree skirt! Can I confess? Last year I went to almost every Home Goods in the Fort Lauderdale, Coral Springs, and Wellington area looking for a tree skirt I liked. That was a lot of gas spent honey! LOL Hope you find one you like easily :)

Sassy Scrapper

OMG Your tree is STUNNING. I would stare at it all day long.
