Just a few trees...here and there...
Just a little closer...
The tiniest one of all...but plenty of old ornaments to go around.
What a little cutie!

I have a "ton" (literally) of vintage ornaments...and have decked the trees... (and still have boxes that haven't been opened - too many???)

When you fill that bicyle backet be sure to give us a peek, I'm sure it will be incredible. Happy holidays.

I just bought another white disgarded tree for $3.00 at the Thrift store to make more trees out of, so they are out there, you just have to find one. This one isn't pre-lit, so will be much easier to work with. The one I made my tree out of was a 4' pre lit tree, so I had to spend hours unwinding the lights before I could dismantle the tree. Argh!
I too have a gazillion vintage ornaments, and under my steps is filled with Christmas decor, which is mostly vintage. Can you believe that I haven't taken out any of it this year. What I've used this year, was all collected for the new theme. I'm bad with too much too. Oh well. I love the Christmas stuff, but we're going to Florida for a week b-4 Christmas, so am doing less this year. Posted: 9:22 am on December 11th

I love the white too, and am hoping to find some parts to make one like Lani did (to add to the "collection"). (or maybe do a "re-do" with my existing tree...hmmmmm...)

upyourattic - It's hard for me to pass up a box of old ornaments at garage sales, etc...thus the "surplus", but I'm going to spread them around a bit more. I've got an old bicycle basket that would look cool filled with bulbs, and I'd like to make a wreath out of some of them too (don't know if it will be in time for this Christmas, but a good future project).
