The Frasier Fir 2015

 Happy Tuesday!
Today is tree #7 and the only real tree of the 13 the Frasier Fir..This year it is HUGE! And it fell over.. Yes it did.. The first day it was about 1/2 decorated and I was in the kitchen and down it went.. I had to take everything off the tree..A couple of my sons had to take it out of the stand and re screw those screws into it..they hadn' tightened it good to start with and that's why it fell! The smell of a Frasier fir is the best thing ever.. Just smells like Christmas!

 This tree is in our living room and the one that is loaded with family memories ..we have alot of ornaments on this tree! It is standing in a galvanized bucket I found at an Estate sale..
I brought the vintage child's wheelbarrow in and loaded it up with Santa and some branches that were cut off the bottom of the tree and a strand of pompoms..



lots of handmade ornaments..ornaments my kids have made..Disney ornaments ..Hallmark ornaments..ornaments from every place we have traveled to..
 and vintage ornaments hang on this tree


 There are 3 strands of decomesh that I used as a garland.. 2 red and a red and white stripe..
For the topper of the tree I used decomesh and a couple different kinds of ribbons and made 4 separate bows that are placed around the top.. I also added a bunch of red berry picks to accent the bows..

Lots of fun here...and themed trees are okay, but the one's with the the memories are awesome. We won't put our tree up until next week, because my son has a birthday on Sunday. Tradition---his birthday first before the tree. Grins, love it and Merry Memories! Sandi

I am just getting back to my blog reading after getting back from Argentina, Priscilla, so have thoroughly enjoyed my stroll through your Christmas decorating posts! The new reindeer wreath you made is adorable and I love the Christmas village. I think you could charge admission to your beautifully decorated Christmas home :)

That tree is amazing. We use an old galvanized tub too and I love how I don't have to worry about my floors and the water.

Love the fir tree; so fun to have a real one. We used to get a Noble Fir and I always loved it since it did not shed and the limbs were far enough apart to hang bigger things and tuck item back to the base stem of the tree. Love all your trees and the decorations. Merry Christmas time!
