The Two Skinny Trees

 Good morning !
Hope all of you that celebrate Thanksgiving had great times with family and friends!
I am sharing my "skinny" trees today .. These trees are great to just fit in places where there is not much room. I have collected ice skate ornaments for many years so they have their own tree. 

 I got the burlap skates a couple weeks ago in North Carolina and the big vintage looking skate in Manhattan Beach California fun to find new ornaments !
 I made the tree topper from a pair of skatess my sisiter in law gave me .. I glued them together with hot glue and glued in  a paper towel roll to slip on the top of the tree.
 This year the ice skate  tree is in a corner of the dining room . It usually is in the living room. I have it up on a small wooden crate to make it taller..
The youngest turkey  grandson yesterday :) ..He looks like a little doll :)

 The other skinny tree is in the family room and its the Americana tree..
 This year I added flags ..It is in the corner right next to my desk..
 I placed it in a flea market white basket that I got for 50 cents this summer :) There are so many fun red,white,and blue ornaments ..

Thanks so much for stopping by ! I will be back tomorrow with more trees ! 9 more to go !
If you would like to see what I am up to everyday join me on Instagram and my Facebook page ! I do post on both almost everyday ..Links to my Facebook page , Instagram and Pinterest are in the sidebar .. Hope to see you there ! :)

Linking to these fabulous parties !

LOVE both trees!!

Do you do a Patriotic Tree for the Summer Patriotic Holidays? I do a white tree in the LR for that.
I love the Ice Skate Tree. Now that is a great tree to keep up for the Winter.
you know me, I keep up trees year long!

I have been looking and pinning through your Christmas posts....getting inspiration and I was wondering where did you buy these trees? I love the size of them...skinny and not too tall...
