oh, christmas tree {s} 2015

Our christmas tree was the first thing done for the season this year.
Christmas tree1
It was up & done the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
Christmas tree2
And, yes, it was still November.
Christmas tree3
That’s pretty good for this crew.
Christmas tree4
This year we felt the impact of our kids getting older.
Christmas tree5
Miss M, the tween in the family, changed sleep over plans so she could be home & decorate the tree with the family.
Christmas tree6
but then, Master M, the teenager in the family went out with friends which delayed the festivities, but he was home early enough to make it all work out.
Christmas tree7
 A vintage truck under the tree with bottle brush trees will be the only toy under the tree these days.
Christmas tree8
We also have a table top tree in the family room.
Christmas tree9
This little guy is only graced with green birds, mini mercury glass ornaments | garland and snow flakes from the Dollar Tree that I glass glittered.
Christmas tree11
I bought a pack of 10 last year for our winter mugs & the German glass glitter aged perfectly so I added the rest to this tree this year.
Christmas tree12
I love real trees, regardless of the mess & higher maintenance.
Christmas tree13
Plus a sprinkling of trees here & there & everywhere.
Christmas tree14
On the other side of the family room sits a small tree vignette on a mirrored tray.
Christmas tree15
IIt includes bottle brushes & a couple of trees I’ve crafted through the years.
Christmas tree16
The Anthropologie snow globe knock off I created a few years back.
Christmas tree17
In the kitchen I have a few tree vignettes.
Christmas tree18
I shared a sneak peak of the kitchen table here.
Christmas tree19
I also shared a quick S&P shaker snow globe craft here.
Christmas tree20
Which now sits on my kitchen scale in a mini vignette.
Christmas tree21
A family of bottle brushes sit underneath a marble cheese dome.
Christmas tree22
I found the cheese dome at a thrift store & truth be told I use it to decorate more often than to serve cheese.
Are you done decorating yet?
Happy fa la la la la la la la la !

    Your tree is gorgeous! Where did you get the garland? I love it! We bought our tree on that day, but it took at least a week until it was decorated. I know what you mean about the kids getting older. My tween son never cared much for decorating anyway, but my two teen girls were not really interested at all this year:( I was sad. I keep remembering things from Christmases past when they were little…..ah well. Thanks for sharing with us over at the Vintage Charm Link Party! Hope to see you there tomorrow morning! xoKathleen Charm Bracelet Diva {At Home}
