Christmas DecorationsChristmas is a hands-on art. From the lights we put on the house to the decorations we put on the tree to the great foods we eat in the process, Christmas is a time of doing -- and this is the place we gather to talk, plan and share.

My Dog Sam
Dear Abby, I too was picked on when I was a child and I too turned to our dog Queenie. She always gave me love and she always listened. Bless you.
My husband had it for 5 years after he and his second wife divorced. He didn't really want a tree our first Christmas (4 years ago this Year) but I told him we were getting one and that was that. We still have that lil 1 1/2 foot tree and i decorate it every year with these teensy little ornamnets. We did it in spongebob last year because i got a complete set as a gag fit, i thought they were cute. This year I want to get a few more for various rooms in the house. I try to incorporate one or two things in each room that we use so that we feel kinda fuzzy everytime we enter one of the rooms. LOL i actually forgot to take down the 12 days brass wreath in our pc room, it has been up for roughly 2 years. I am planning on using that this year in another room. As for the white tree and blue lights, I am doing that NEXT year (2008). I will be using clear and silver ornaments.
I have one which infact is a advent calender which has boxes up to Christmas Eve with tiny decorations and each day you put them on the tree, it's a musical too that plays "On The First Day Of Chrismas"
I love those mini trees! I have two, both are just mini versions of normal evergreen trees. One has lights! The other one doesn't have lights but I always put tinsil and mini ornaments and a star on top!
At Micheals last year i found a miniture star that i fell in love with to put on top of my mini tree. Every year, my girl scout troop does a cookie party and ornament exchange, so i put the ornament i get from that on my tree, and my grandmother usually gives us a ornament for x-mas, so that goes on their too.

Had to share...I went to the local thrift store today and they are slowly putting out Christmas Stuff. I know the gal that runs it. I tried to talk her out of this white miniature tree but she would'nt part with it since the store was using it to hang and sell decorations. She said I could buy it next Thursday when they put out more items. So in the meantime she called me to the back of the store and asked if I would be interested in this Pink 3ft. Miniature Barbie tree...well of course I didn't even have to think twice about it. It's in mint condition and I got it for $2.50 (love a bargain). I also picked up a few vintage glass bulbs/ornaments. One of them being a strawberry...really cute..anyhow just wanted to share the good news with everyone.
