Countdown 'til Christmas ~ Day 15/O' Christmas Tree

~ Pictures of the main Christmas tree in our home. ~
My camera is not cooperating, so all but the first picture are from last year.
The only thing that has changed, though,
I didn't scatter bows randomly down the tree, as in years past.
Instead I grouped several at the top.
~Come take a peek...

~By Dr. Seuss

"And the Grinch,
with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow,
stood puzzling and puzzling,
how could it be so?
It came without ribbons. It came without tags.
It came without packages, boxes or bags.
And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore.
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before.
What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store?
What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more?"
~Wishing you a Merry lil' Christmas, now! Rhonda

Rhonda, your tree is spectacular, that tree topper is fantastic. I love it. I cluster bows at the top of our tree, too.

I am so loving your Countdown 'til Christmas. Thank you for sharing your spirit with all of us.

I'm going to have to monkey with the settings on my monitor so I can read your blog again. The pictures are wonderful but I miss reading what you've written! THanks so much for stopping by. It was a rough day but not rough in the way I thought it would be and not nearly as bad. It's crazy here until Christmas. This week I'm making up hour for days I took off to be with Trav and then it will be the normal crazy we all have at Christmastime! Thanks for being such a good friend and stopping by. It meant more than I can possibly say. :)

Simply stunning! Your Christmas tree is beautiful! I love the top, my mom tries to do something like that every year and it always looks a little off, but I am sending her your blog so she can get some inspiration!

Tardevil said...

Wow! Love that view and the staircase! Your tree is gorgeous. Bet it takes a ladder to get to the top.

You always have the most amazingly beautiful trees. My tree is up, lights and garland are on but still that's it. I keep hoping things will calm down so I can get it done. I wanted it done Thanksgiving weekend and that's just how busy it's been. Sigh. It's a yearly thing with my job and makes Christmas rough to get done the things I want. Oh well, enough about me. I'm off to read more!
