The tree is up!

Thankful for a beautiful Christmas tree hangin' out in the corner, brightening up the house though the weather is cold and overcast outside.
Was excited to incorporate some estate sale finds this year!

The wooden "Mindy" stocking was made in the 80s by my late paternal grandparents. My grandpa carpentered and my grandma painted. So it is very precious to me. The Seasons Greetings sign is from an estate sale. I have two and may list the other on Etsy.
The ornery Santa's also from an estate sale.
How's your decorating coming along? Hoping I can convince Shawn to string some lights outside.

But it's soooooo cold!

Your tree looks great! I'm looking forward to getting ours on Friday - we're going to try a local tree farm about 30 miles away. I've also been working on decorating inside, and Jake put our Christmas lights up outside yesterday - not quite as cold then, but still super windy.

I am waiting till the 1st to do our tree. Which is only one sleep away. Cant wait! I love putting on the christmas music and decorating the house. Its getting hotter here by the day. Aircon is on alot at the moment. Stark contrast to you.
Love your tree btw. Gorgeous.

Your tree is beautiful! I've decorated but we haven't put up our tree yet. Maybe this weekend, I still need to get an extra string of lights since we lost one last year. My favorite decoration we have is my Christmas clock. It plays Christmas songs on the hour, my Husband hates it, one year he even took the batteries out!

Beautiful! I convinced Tyler to hang lights outside for the first time this year- yeah! Your tree makes me a little jealous, though. ;)
