My 12 trees are my first Christmas Collector's Alley contribution!
How did all of this madness start you ask????
Well, several years ago, my all time favorite magazine was the now out of print Victorian Decorating and Lifestyle.
I still have all of my back issues and have purchased many on Ebay.
But when I first gazed upon the Jan. 2000 issue, I fell in love with the idea of a tree in every room.
Now I already had several Christmas trees in the house...one in the Living Room, one in the Boy's play room which is now my Den and one in each of my 2 son's rooms that they decorated themselves every year.
Please click on pics to enlarge and then click again and you should be able to read the article!!
The article that started it all was about a woman named Debora Richey from North Carolina that had 10 Christmas trees.
I just loved the way her home looked...
Each tree and each room had a theme..
Many of the decorations she made herself....
So this is what started it for me!! I started to buy ornaments on Clearance after Christmas and then I picked different themes and colors for each room.
Some of the ornaments I bought I was able to use for other Holidays so I started to leave some of the trees up and decorate them for Holidays other than Christmas.
This is my Patriotic Tree that has been in my Living Room since Memorial Day.
After Labor Day, I will decorate it for Autumn.
There is at least one or two trees decorated in my home all year round!!
