    If I could find enough of them I would do a special tree in our bedroom with lighthouse ornaments on it I love light houses. I found a 6' prelit tree at big lots for $30.00 I might pick one up before new years to do up in our bedroom next year. I really love the old artificial tree I have been using for years so I will keep using him!

    There's nothing wrong with country...Especially if it reflects what you like. I love Jim Shore! His Disney and Halloween collections are my favorites of course What lovely pics! Thanks for sharing with us.

    I say it's your tree, do what you want. I said in the tinsel thread that I don't like tinsel on my tree, but I like it on other people's. It all depends on the look you are going for. You said you're a little bit country, so I'm guessing your whole house is decorated country. If that is the case, your new tree should fit in perfectly.

    :tree: Try a theme based tree for lots of compliments

    Hi, this is Lisa. Have you thought of a theme for your tree? For example, if you like angels or santas, work on finding all kinds of ornaments with that theme. It really made my tree the envy of many. I would find several ornaments that were similar and different from the theme and I had a cute angel themed tree. If I can find it, I'll find you the website of some ornaments. I am not allowed to post a site on the first post, so I'll have to find it and write back.

    The blue and white one? Thanks. That's the first Jim Shore angel that I got and she's my favorite so far.

    My main theme is Jim Shore/Heartwood Creek. I think I now have all the ornaments I need. I mail ordered some that should arrive fairly soon. One of our daughters has a nice snowman tree.

    Don't worry about others opinions on your tree- as long as you love it that is all that matters. If your kids are younger you might want to consider getting them a small tree for their room that they can decorate how ever they wish. My parents did this for us and we absolutely loved it!!!

    My oldest grandchild is sixteen.

    I guess I was worried. I just want everyone to enjoy the tree when they come over to exchange gifts. I hope they like it enough when it's done even if it is Jim Shore. I'm the kind of person who wants everyone to have a good time. I want everything to be perfect....silly me. At my age, you'd think I'd have more sense than that! Maybe you guys are helping me get my head on straight.
