December 2006 O Christmas Tree(s)

The weekend after Thanksgiving, and it was time to put up all our trees. Last year I "settled" for four, and launched the "Sunflower Tree" to match my therapy office in the casita. This year, a new tree evolved from my collection of "shopping" ornaments.
We started in the Great Room with the gold/green/bronze tree with lots of jeweled fruit.


Next after Brad added the red and green lights, I decorated the "Italy Tree" in our Master Bedroom. Here is a link to a photo album:



The Casita has the "Sunflower Tree". Next year I need to work on a treeskirt for this.
Maybe an Italian tablecloth would work!


Our biggest and most traditional tree is in the dining room. There are ornaments on here that are more than 30 years old! Each year we love adding a few new ones, and Brad and I exchange a special one every Christmas.


The new tree this year is the "Shopping Tree", with shopping bag ornaments from Nordstrom, Gumps, Macy's, Neiman Marcus, Bloomies, Gucci, and assorted gift cards.
I need an ornament that says "Chico's"! How appropriate that my "shopping sister", Joy, will be sleeping in here next week!

I've been collecting the Nordstrom shopping bag ornaments since 2005, and am trying to find the ones older than 2005. I came across your blog and saw your picture of the shopping bag ornament tree, but when I try to enlarge it to view your ornaments better, it just gets blurry. Any chance you have a close up pic of all of your Nordstrom shopping bag ornaments that you could share? And/or have a pic of any that you own that are older than 2005? I would greatly appreciate any information you could share!

Thanks & happy holidays, Kathy
