~The Morning Room Christmas Tree

Have you seen Christmas trees that are just so perfectly designed? Well this is not one of them. This is pure sentimental whimsy, silly. We put all of the fun and totally lovable ornaments on this little tree. We have everything from lovely silver framed family pictures, which some are waiting patiently to be put up still, then there is fake candy, and Nutcraker guys, Santa, bears....everything old fashioned and whimsical. It makes me laugh and makes me cry. Pictures of my wonderful Dad whom I miss a lot, the Darling Daughter when she was little, me at about 3, those kinds of things. A silly, tender little tree which is so much fun.

You know I love snowmen and snowflakes. Aren't these guys cute? The snowmen were found one year apart at Marshall's most likely. They look old already and suit this little area perfectly. I still look for cupcake and tart ornaments in blown glass, they are just so cute.

OK, that's all that was on the camera. Just a little bit more to come.

It has been so much fun to join in the Holiday Christmas Tours. Thanks for coming by to visit.


  1. Donna,
    Love the tree and the snowmen!

  2. I love your "family tree" and actually love any photos I get to see of your beautiful home. Merry Christmas!

  3. That tree is totally adorable and the way you frame your pictures sets them off beautifully. Can you share your secret?

  4. =^..^= donna

    I think that these are the very best kind of tree ... without doubt the most special. I adore your little collection of snowy things! I have a thing for snowmen and gingerbread men myself ... always have.

    Oooo What a great excuse for me to tell myself ::ahem:: Perhaps my snow and gingermen deserve a tree of their own? Who am I kidding? I need no excuse for another tree ::grin:: I admit it. I just plain want one!

    More tiny lights and trees! Yippeeeee!

    SO enjoying your Christmas sharing ...
    =^..^= love, zU

  5. What a sweet tree and I love the snowmen. I enjoyed the tour on your earlier post...everything is just beautiful. Linda

  6. Donna, I *love* that is so charming and pretty! And I would have brought those snowmen home, too! I can't believe you found them at different times...they are perfect together.

    Thank you so much for your sweet note would only be more fun if you could be there, too! I'm glad that you have enjoyed "being with us"! :)

    Love, Andrea

  7. Oh my gosh you have Christmas Clown LOL! Did you see my post about him?

    The tree is so sweet and I really like that harlequin planter it's in.

    Merry Christmas!


  8. The tree is lovely and the snowmen, both cute little fellows!

    Best Wishes and please feel free to visit my holiday home tour over at my blog


  9. Oooo, Donna! You have been busily posting & I have almost missed your beautiful decorations this year. I'm so glad you are sharing this with everyone, as you always put your decor together SO perfectly & so dreamy. I'm always on the lookout for more of those green acorns too & found another small pack of some that are a litle brighter, darker green. I was so happy to find them at TJM this year. I have my eye on a couple more I'd love to snag after Christmas. I love all your greens & those brighter colors on your pretty! If I was going to start over, it might be with Radkos, although that's not likely to happen.

    Merry Christmas, dear Donna!


  10. wow! beautiful!!!!! i love your style!

  11. Ahh...Donna, this tree is perfect!! I'm enjoying all these beautiful Christmas glimpses of your gorgeous home!

    Merry Christmas!


  12. Donna,
    Like you, I need a little whimsy and sentiment at Christmas. We all need something to laugh at/about, not just to ooh and aah over, and you've definitely provided both in your pictures. Thanks for sharing.
    Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  13. And who doesn't love a touch of whimsy? :)

  14. oooh, aaahh, oooh, aaahh...
    That is me sighing with pure content as I drool over your BEAUTIFUL Christmas pictures this Saturday morning! EVERYTHING is so lovely and so YOU sweet friend! I love this morning room tree especially! Just precious! Your Christmas decorating is like noone else's - it just "flows" with grace and beauty BUT with whimsical touches that look to be done with an artist's brush - which of course is what you are. And it shows. Donna's Christmas=Enchanting! AND I love the "threes".... just love that attention to detail and how it represents your sweet family!
    Merry Christmas dear friend! And thank you for starting my day off with a smile and a warmed heart.
