So many trees!

Right now, I have a 6 foot artificial tree that I bought for cheap when I first moved out of my parents' house. For the past several years, I've used this tree. It worked well for me in my efficiency apartment. But now I have a whole house to decorate and I think I need more trees.

My mom is giving me a tall skinny fake tree with purple lights. That's going to go on the entryway of the split-level house. I think the college tree will go in the basement. I talked to my fiance about this, and was sort of asking his oppinion, but he knew my trick. He said, "well, it sounds like we're getting a tree down here." And I'm going to get another tree for upstairs in front of the bay window.

I cannot wait for this Christmas! I love decorating trees, and 3 trees is 3 times the fun!!!

Sounds great! I have several trees, one 7 1/2 ft for my den and several table top ones. I would like to get one more big tree for my living room. I can't wait to get my trees out!

Yep, you can never have too many trees. They make each room very festive.
I have 3 wall trees, 2 small ones and one larger. I love to use my wall trees in different rooms. Then I have two small trees that need to go on tables but they are about 3 ft. tall and then two big trees. So I put up 7 trees and I enjoy doing it.

I'll be sure to do that. I don't have any pictures up right now because I've never had a digital camera. I'm getting one soon though, so be prepared for pictures!

The more trees the better is what I always say. And that's coming from someone who has at least 10 up every year. You'll be surprised at how many spots you can actually put a tree without it looking forced or overdone. Take it slow though, because you don't want to have too many too fast or you might get overwhelmed or worse yet overwhelm everyone else. My decorations have been growing for the past 17 years.

WOW! 10 trees? I'd love to have that many.. but in this apt I'd have to strap them to the cat's backs and hang them from the ceiling!
