Christmas Tree Obsession

This year I decided to go a little overboard.  I usually decorate our home quite extensively, but for some reason this year I went over the top!
The first tree I did was one of my post trees.  I actually made two.  They were created from some sort of high jump pole, whether for horses or humans ;-)  You may seen my original post on how to make post trees back in late 2008  For these two trees I purchased white artifical trees where the branches were all attached.  I simply took a bolt cutter and cut them off.
Voila!  I chose a white tree, because well, almost everything I do is white!  Now, one down, many more to go!  
I drilled holes in the sides of the posts and inserted the branches.  I did not glue them in.  I wanted to be able to store them without the branches.  
And the first completed, well almost completed tree.  Still need to decorate!
One tree done...six more to go!  This tree is decorated with some of my many silver shiny brights, along with new ornaments.  The tree skirt is one of my vintage coats, made of beautiful silver-blue mohair.
With most of my trees that are decorated, I use vintage elements.  The vintage shiny brights I used are clumbed in threes with some new clear craft ornaments.  No need for crafting here though.  I LOVE them just as they are!
This was a little project I did with Sue back at one of her JUNKMARKET Christmas events in Long Lake.  These are vintage Christmas light reflectors with a vintage clip-on earring in the center.
This tree sorry to say is an artifical flocked tree (my bad).  But love it in this vintage wicker basket.  The ornaments are new, but I love the mixture of the large white and green bulbs.  
This is the tree I put up in my bedroom.  Yes, my bedroom.  I love going to bed at night with it still on...such a beautiful glow.  Again, I placed a grouping of two vintage brights with a clear craft Christmas ball.  The tree (not a post tree, but simply store bought) is placed in a vintage wash tub with rock salt to hide the base.
In the main floor guest bathroom I have a vintage bottle brush tree sitting in a brown transferware ironstone commode.  New balls, but surrounded by vintage loves.
Not enough room to show you all my trees, but Ill leave you with the second of my post trees.  The vintage part (besides the post)?  Vintage kids skates and babies shoes!  Nothing sweeter than these!

Sorry, I have been absent.  I've been preparing for a Christmas party and have I been with consumed with decorating!  Sue attended and realized I have a problem.  It's actually a Christmas tree obsession.  Okay, so I may have a few Christmas trees (54 to be exact).  But no, they are not full size trees.  Well, only seven of them are.  Ooops.  But she said I need to come clean with my addiction to Christmas trees.  So here I go...I'm Lanette Lorsung and I have a Christmas tree obsession!

suziart writes: You have a lovely home and your obsession is fantastic! I also have many trees which are displayed all year, all vintage and decorated in vintage themes. Of course they are much smaller! What a great job! Like a white wonderland.
