My Prim Tree

Wanted to take a few minutes before I call it a night/weekend.  I promised some pictures of my house, but will tell you that I am not happy with the way that they turned out.  Kinda blurry.  But it gives you some idea.  This year, I didn't decorate the way I usually do, I didn't put nearly the amount of things out this year as years in the past.  But since time is of a essence, I just did a little bit.  First I think I will start in my  family room.


Of course, the tree is the focal point of this room, and I couldn't be more happy with how it turned out.   I love this tree.  The soft glow of the gold lights on it makes all the difference.  Years before I have had multi colored and all white, but the gold/amber lights, give it the old 'flame' look of candles.  This tree houses all my handmade type ornaments.  Underneath the tree, I use a old quilt as my tree skirt and this year I filled it with some old toys and bears.  I really wish there was more room, because I have a sled that I like to display under this tree, but this year, I didn't think it would work.  After this picture was made I added a old rusty tin star to the top. 

I hope you enjoyed a sneak peek at my prim tree.

Cindy, it is gorgeous! I enlarged so I could see it better. I have never seen the amber lights. I'll have to look for thsoe. But my tree is one of those pre-lit trees with white lights. I do like it too.
Have a great week!
