This is a picture of one of the 19 trees I had last year. It was my snowman winter wonderland tree. All the decorations in this room were snowmen, snow related or just white. This year I am only putting up small trees in each room as our family Christmas weekend will be at Maggie's in Tennessee. We haven't finished the house yet so am not ready for that many people or up to that many trees. This is the mantel where I hung 21 stockings across filled to the brim with gifts and candies to only have some of them melt..... wonder why???? LOL If you see the packages underneath they are all wrapped in brown shipping paper and tied with raffata. Each year I try to wrap my presents in a different way. This year I am going simple with wrapping everything in white tissue and tied with simple string. I just love having Christmas traditions!

What a gorgeous tree!! I have to say though...19 trees? WHAT?!?! My husband would shoot me! BTW, the Bible study is up today. I. AM. SO. SICK. Please say prayers for me! I hope I'm better by Friday, that's the day I have my ekg. I don't know if being sick will affect that or not......

White tissue!!! Reminds me of the white gift Sunday in the Presbyterian Church of my youth. Everyone had to bring a gift of food wrapped in white tissue. The food was contributed to a charity for distribution. This was before Food Banks. Where circumstances better back then or did we hid our poor better??
