    My grandmother used to have the exact same tree, Holiday Mom, but I don't know whatever happened to it. I loved that thing as a kid.

    I lost my Christmas mojo a couple of years ago when some family members laughed at my lame Christmas tree. But this year I think I'm getting my groove back. To heck with the others! I'm decorating this year and I don't care what they think. I'm excited about Christmas already.
    Merry Christmas to all - for all the year round. http://www.myvintagechristmasdecorations.net

    Good for you Littlestar. I'm also excited about Christmas and I'm loving it.

    Merry Snowy Christmas

People are always amazed by the results. Then I set aside a day for general decorating including the small white tree in the den. I always have to pack away my everyday decorations to make room first. Lastly, I set up the main tree in the living room front window. Can't wait!


    that sounds amazing . i have to buy more stuff to catch up.

    I have so much stuff now that I barely have room to store it. I always say that I'm not going to put everything up, but I always end up with everything! When people walk in they think they're at Santa's workshop!

My grandmother and my step mother both had them when I was growing up and I have fond memories of playing with the glass bits (although i did get into a lot of trouble for it). When my grandmother passed away I was supposed to get hers, but no one could ever find it. Last year, a friend of my aunt's found her mothers and remembering how much I had wanted one, gave it to me. I didn't have an opportunity to use it last year, so I can't wait to get it out this year.

    This isn't mine, but here's a pic for reference:

    I totally remember those too - my aunt had one, in the 80s!

    I remember those ceramic trees too. My family didn't have one, but several friends and neighbors had them, and I even had a couple of teachers who brought the in to decorate the classrooms.

    Hi everyone!

    Well we just moved house last month so it will be our first xmas in our new flat, its already feeling very homely and cosy here though so I'm sure we can make it lovely and xmasy!
    Its pretty small though so we can't go too crazy on the decorations!also living in busy london there isn't much room to put decorations outside! We always get a real xmas tree though. no compromise! I love the smell of them and thats a great feeling to come home to when you come in from the cold and you see your REAL xmas tree all lit up and smelling like pure christmas!!!
