Oh, Judy --- that's WONDERFUL!  and the gifts aren't there yet.    ;^)
It's a lovely tree.  Do you use a skirt?

Thank you very much for showing us.

Very nice tree Judy.My house is small and we don't have the room to have a large tree.Once my son gets out of Nursing school he's going to buy a house and we will be living with him.I know then we'll have more room to have a nice tree like yours.Merry Christmas to you!

Nancy, the skirt covers the 5 gallon bucket of wet sand it is sitting in.  It has wires that attach to the wall and the curtain rod so it won't tip over.  I like the open-ness of it so more ornaments can go on.  Lots of the commercial trees are so compact there's not much room for stuff.  My Mom crocheted all the snowflakes I have on it and they fill in the big empty spaces.  I have them hung with nylon thread so you only see the snow flakes, not the thread.

SUPER!!!  We are in a condo.....we have a "Charlie Brown Tree", all decked out in one ornament.....but, the ornament is red....so it looks like Christmas!!  We used to do enormous trees.....what a difference a move into a condo makes!!  Your tree is beautiful, and perhaps one day, we'll get a big tree like that.  We do have a 20 ft. ceiling; but the tree limbs would probably cover all of the room, and maybe into the next.  But, I would LOVE a tree like that!!

WOW!!!  That is one big tree.  Not only is it tall, it is "fat" or should I say full.  Looks great!!
We have a fake tree.  Just got tired of all the falling needles and lugging a big tree in and out of the house.  The one we have is in 3 pieces so it is easy to handle.  When we had hardwood floors put in we didn't want to take a chance of getting water on them, so a fake tree was the answer.  We also have vaulted ceilings, so we needed a tall tree.  Ours is about 8-9 feet tall.

Hahaha!  This happened to us once too!!  My husband and youngest son came home with the "perfect" little tree.....and then they put it in the stand.....all of a sudden.....it was HUGE!!!  It was so fat....I think it was fatter than it was tall.  We will never forget that tree!

Your tree is beautiful Judy!!!  Smile

Great tree!  I  would love to have a real tree for Christmas.  They smell so nice and have such character.

Merry Christmas.
