I have been totally blown away by the response to this blog in the first week. Whoa...Besides comments on both blogs, I have received so many emails.
NEVER FEAR...the grandkids have all been with me this weekend, so there will be Grammy pictures in the next few days on my regular blog. I am not abandoning my REAL LOVE!!!

A big thank you to Kat at Heart to Heart for interviewing me on her blog. She had some interesting questions and some that I had not thought about recently, like what was my biggest fear or nightmare in decorating???? That would be any of my helpers falling off a ladder!! Be sure and go by her blog, which is GREAT, and read the interview.

Now for the Winners and then a few pictures of living room is literally covered in Christmas stuff that arrived last week. I thought of making a picture of it...maybe I will tomorrow, so you will know how we live for the next few months. There is glitter everywhere.

This happens to be a real tree and gorgeous. The picture does not really do it justice!
Cute Play Room Tree

This tree is filled with Victorian Heirlooms!

This is a beautiful and huge tree in an entry hall...filled with new Christopher Radko Ornaments but also tons of ornaments that are fifty years old, handed down from a grandmother...Priceless ornaments..

The winner of the Free Consultation is .....
Susan at This Day!

and the runner up who will also get a box of goodies
Mammy at Come to Mammy's

Please go by these blogs and say hello....You might make a new friend and to me that is one of the best things in blogging.
Remember all of you are still eligible for the Oct 1 drawing.
Each post I am going to give you at least a few pictures of trees that I did last year....Also, I have had so many requests for the letter and the scroll that we used with the Jesus Tree. Give me a week or so to get it typed and I will either post it or mail it to you.
Questions are always welcome and I saw a few new ones will go back and do some Q and A soon!

Beautiful trees! I think my favorite is the Victorian, but the playroom tree is so cute. i believe I detected a blue personalized mouse ears ball on the right hand side of that one. Just a tip for your readers: Click on each tree and it will enlarge, so that you can see all the detail!

Thank you so much for offering a free consultation. I am so grateful for being chosen.

We are purchasing a two story home built in 1925. This is an awesome opportunity to start new traditions in our new the Jesus Tree.

Thanks to Ethel for the tip on your photos. You can see all the detail when you click on the picture.

Blessings, SusanD

Teresa these trees are something else! I would never have thought to put so many ornaments or such a variety of ornaments together on one tree. Thank you! I have a new vision of what my tree can look like, I'm excited to see what I can come up with this year. Congrats to the winners.

Those trees are packed!! I LOVE them. You have inspired me to pull the ends out of balls and stick them on limbs. Now I am also inspired to fill my tree to the brim. Question, I use a real tree. How do you get it to look so full?

Hi Theresa,
What a neat business! The pics are great, I use a real tree too and I fill it up but of course I can't get the same effect. I am wondering what you do with real trees? We usually get a Balsam or Frasier Fir (the best) and cut it ourselves (our tradition). Cindy

Holly said...

Holy Moly do I love your trees!! What a fabulous life you lead!!!

Darlene said...

Those trees are absolutely GORGEOUS!!

Lynn said...

The headers on both your blogs are beautiful! It's good to meet you. Thanks for stopping by my blog to say hello. (And I love what you say about how you could be stranded on a desert island with just your family and be perfectly happy :) I feel the same way.)

Hi Teresa! I noticed that you are a follower of my blog and I just wanted to pay you a visit to thank you! Imagine my surprise when I discovered a fellow "Christmas Tree fanatic"! I have been an over the top decorator for years, also participating in tour of homes (what an experience!)! Last year, I had 8 full size, loaded down, amazing trees in my house! In other words, one in just about every room! I have three daughters and have created monsters in them too :), they do the same thing! I will be a devoted follower from now on!

P.S. I ADORE the Jesus tree idea, I WILL be borrowing that one from you and cannot wait to get my grandbabies started on it!

Hi Teresa, I noticed that you are a follower of my blog and I just wanted to stop by and say thanks! Imagine my surprise when I discovered a fellow "Christmas tree fanatic"! I also have participated in tour of homes (what an experience!) and last year I had 8 loaded down, full size trees alone, not counting mantles and banisters. In other words, a tree for almost every room! I will be a devoted follower and will look forward to new ideas!

P.S. I ADORE your Jesus tree idea! I will definitely be adding one this year and can't wait to get my grandbabies started on it!

Wow! These trees are just GORGEOUS! Makes me feel like my trees of the past were too bare. I like how they have LOTS of ornaments. I just am in love with your blog. I must admit that I love Christmas, BUT my favorite time of the year is Autumn/Thanksgiving!
