Purty Trees and Sweet Ornamentations To You

Let's link up and tour around to see our trees and any special ornaments we might like to feature, OK?

Here's my tree at night. I know I'm missing a topper. The old one didn't match the new decor because we just painted the walls. They were taupe and cranberry; now they're brown and spring green:


Here it is in the daylight. Please note that I have wrapped gifts this early in the game; I am awesome:


And here is an ornament, hand-painted, by someone else, of my parents. They are about to celebrate 69 years of marriage on Dec. 16.




OK, those are my entries. Would you like to share? Please link to the post of your tree and/or ornament so we can see the loveliness. Thanks for participating!

Beautiful tree. And wow, wrapped presents already? Go Linda, go Linda! I'm hoping to get some under the tree this weekend.

What a great idea for an ornament. Your parents don't look like they could possibly be married 69 years, especially your mom. Did they get married at birth? :) I sure hope I look that good at that age.

Love your new brown and green walls btw!

Your tree is gorgeous. And I love that ornament of your mom and dad. What a great keepsake.

P.S. Can you please remove my first link. It's so not the right one.

Lovely ! and this idea with your parents painted on an ornament is unic !
I had shown my Christmas decoration in another post so I linked to it in Linky.

This year I don't do a Christmas tree because we are celebrating in Amsterdam together with my son's family.
