THERE'S JUST SOMETHING ABOUT A SMALL TREE

I love Christmas trees in all shapes and sizes. I find it so interesting to see all of the creative ways that trees are decorated. Maybe because I am planning to move into a very small apartment next year, my eye has been drawn to small trees. 

A tree doesn't necessarily have to have a lot of decorations to be beautiful. Sometimes the tree itself, no matter its size, can make a statement.

Small trees on your porch can add a warm welcome.

Love this old fashioned look, and I think it is wonderful to have a living tree that can be replanted after the holidays.

A small tree can cozy up a corner,

or even a window sill.

I think there will be visions of small Christmas trees dancing through my head tonight.

  3. I love a small tree with the roots still on. I sometimes have one in my kitchen and then I plant it down our stables to continue growing.

  5. All these small trees simply decorated look fabulous - even as much as a big tree full of fancy.

  7. I think my years of having big trees with complicated lights are over. I prefer small in a small home.

    1. I agree, Brenda. Next year when My things come out of storage there is going to be a lot of selling and giving away of Christmas things.

    1. I love large trees, but I think as we get older we are happier not to have to decorate them. Happy Sunday, Kris.

  12. The trees are all beautiful! My favorite is the one in front of the quilt and next to the barrel. (I don't think it's a barrel, but don't know what it would be called). Beautiful inspiration!
