Oh Christmas Trees

We gave buying those nice perfect Christmas trees from the farm or lot sooo our trees are what they are!!! and sometimes that is not to great but this year I must say we did not to bad. First you have to locate your trees and we did so


Decorating the trees was fun!!
 the kids did the downstairs tree and it only fell over once so now its tied to the wall hahaha! usually is every year cause we have an "incident"
We had the issue of where to put the upstairs tree usually its in the corner where I put my old washing machine but its to big and heavy to move here and there + add the factor of a puppy that is left unsupervised occasionally so the tree either had to be up out of the way or not be there at all.   I just figured it would be easier to use the washing machine as a Christmas Tree stand.  I did the upstairs tree and I must stop fiddling around with it.  A few more decorations here and there and I think my house will be Christmasy enough.

Let Christmas Begin

Normally I do not decorate early but I figured I would start doing little bits at a time here and there soooooo here is my front entry (that NO-ONE uses) and stair well area  Its a beginning and anyone who knows me knows this is Very highly unusual cause I am quite a Grinch.

My Rustic Christmas Ornaments

 So I this year for Christmas I get to have the upstairs to make a grown up matchy match Christmas and the kids get downstairs to put up and decorate with all the old stuff that I dont want .  So I have been making most of my own Christmas decorations
here is some of the ones I came up with today I have many more but just havent bothered to take pics of each and every one of them
these today are just made of bits of this and that  that I had around the house.

No step by step tutorial cause that's just not my thing - really its cause most times I dont remember to take pics and the how to notes until the very end and by then I am done doing. 
But at least it can help give some ideas.
OH and I redid the burlap wreath cause the bow was TO country for my taste soo here it is
