Valentine Tree Photo



Some of my readers have ask to see a full photo of my Valentine Tree, so here's about the best I can do. The picture doesn't do justice to the tree at all. For some reason I couldn't get a clear image, but I think you'll have a better idea of what the tree looks like, anyway.

Jim and I love it. When I turn it's lights off, Jim wonders why(that's how much he appreciates it), so I switch them back on. It is simply beautiful in real life and a real joy to both of us. Wish you could be here to see it.

I'm already collecting items for the Saint Patrick's Day Tree and the Easter Tree. The expectation and search is so much fun!! I definitely recommend the holiday trees to anyone who wishes to add a bit of celebration to their home year around.

***Don't forget the Valentine's Day Giveaway. Photo and rules are listed below.

It's so very pretty! I never would have thought to do a VDay tree. But it's a great idea.

Barbara said...

Janna- It kinda looks like a mess, but in reality it's not. Glad you like it, though.

Pat's Place said...

Thanks for the picture of the whole thing. I love it!

Sonya said...

Oh this is so neat. I've heard people do this but have never seen it! Looks beautiful.

Barbara said...

Pat- Hope you get to try one soon, too.

Barbara said...

Sonya- Thank you.

Love your little Valentine tree. Should have done that. Its really sweet.

Barbara said...

Now that's creative!

I loved your comments about the ongoing search for seasonal decorations. Where shopping is concerned, I'm often heard to say: "It's not about the kill; it's about the hunt". That way hubby and others will understand the fun & adventure of stealth shopping.

Looking forward to the green motif of St. Paddy's Day (being that I'm a Flanagan, it's a favorite).

Love your tree! Thanks for sharing! You should go into the business of selling holiday trees because you do such a wonderful job of decorating!

What a great way to add some extra joy, love and light to the environment. Does my Christmas tree which is still up count? :)

How cute, I love the idea of a valentine tree. I havent even gotten my decorations out so I need to get busy. Hope you have a great week. Blessings, Karen

Sassy- It's so much fun scouting all the craft and discount stores for new ideas.

Barbara said...

Patty- Thank you.

Barbara said...

Donna- You are very encouraging.

Barbara said...

Angie- Hey, I've been known to keep my Christmas tree up for two months! This way I never have to take it down.lol

Barbara said...

KKJD1- Glad you enjoyed the photo.

Joanne said...

Love that tree, I had the same thought as Donna. You could market that Valentine Tree idea, people would line up for one!

Barbara said...

Joanne- Thanks for the vote of confidence.

Kathryn Magendie said...

Oh! It's lovely! just lovely.

MichaƩle said...

Oh, how I wish I could do that! My husband would never go for it but I LOVE the idea!!!! I have managed to put the Christmas Tree up the day after Thanksgiving but New Year's Day is his cut-off date for feeling festive. You have inspired me to at least try it! I do have a little table top tree that sits nicely in the corner on my jewelry armoire....(oh, the creative wheels are going now...AND he's out of town for two days!)

Judy said...

Oooohhhh! This is such a lovely, beautiful Valentines tree! You are so creativly blessed! :)

Barbara said...

Kathryn- Thank you!!

Barbara said...

Michaele- Do as much as you can. You will NOT regret it. I promise.

Barbara said...

Judy- Thanks so much!

Tileena said...

I also LOVE your tree! It is always so hard to take down the Christmas tree. The conversion was a great idea, and something to keep everyone in the cheery holiday mood! I can't wait to see it in person.

Barbara said...

Tileena- I can't wait for you to see the tree! We are lovin' it!!
