Christmas Tree at Lake Martin

The tree is unusual, it has very skinny branches.  When I first saw it, I had no doubt that it was perfect!  I thought it looked so natural.

It had to grow on Mr. Refresh, he likes it now.

The condo at Lake Martin is decorated in browns, golds, oranges mostly nature inspired.  So last year when Sam’s had their Christmas ornaments on sale, I bought a couple of boxes.

I love the ornaments that I found on sale.  The church came from Wal-Mart and my youngest grandson picked out the sleigh.

Decorating the Christmas tree and listening to Christmas music are a few of my favorite things.

Some people complain about  decorating too soon and radio stations that play only Christmas music.  Not me, I just love it all!  What about you?

    What a great tree, those branches are unique!

    I have been listening to Christmas music now for a while, even in the car when I’m driving…
    I just love this time of year, lots of decorating to be done.
    All the Best,

  5. wow! That is truly beautiful!!!!

  7. Love your tree! I am using the same colors! You have to check me out !Joann

  8. I love it all, what great ideas and style. Rustic is my favorite!

  9. I love the natural look of your tree. I’m so ready for Christmas. Love hearing the music. I don’t have the tree up yet though.

  10. Your tree is so pretty. I am all about Christmas after Thanksgiving. I want to enjoy that holiday and then enjoy Christmas. I am traveling for work so while I would love to start putting up my holiday decorations I will have to wait at least a week.

  11. There are so many beautiful brown ornaments this year. Lucky you for buying last year on sale! I love your tree.

  12. Lovely tree! I love that it is so simple and natural. I hope you’ll visit The Corson Cottage and share it at our {Home for the Holidays} link party every Friday in December:) Carrie

  13. I think that is a great tree! Beautiful ornaments! I love the gold quilted one! Very unusual. If I have my shopping done, I can relax and enjoy all the music and decorations, but before that, I am in a bit of a panic. Silly, I know.

  14. Just beautiful! You did a great job with the Christmas decor, your tree look so pretty! How blessed to have a home by a lake, we have ours by a gorgeous river…I love water, no matter what, let it be, lakes, oceans, and of course, rivers. Thanks for sharing……………………………………………………….FABBY

  15. Your tree looks fabulous! I love the rustic and natural ornaments! What a great idea! I also love Lake Martin! It is one of the clearest lakes I have ever seen; it’s magnificent! How wonderful to have a home there too!

  16. That looks absolutely beautiful Debbie!! I went with a similar color palette for the tree in our master bedroom and it is so fun to play with different colors. I would love to more of that condo too! 🙂 I started listening to instrumental Christmas music in late October and I’m proud of it! It just makes me feel good!
    Can’t wait to see more of what you come up with this season.

  17. Just gorgeous Debbie! I love everything you’ve chosen to decorate your beautiful tree with. I would love to find those bird ornaments. And the sled is so cute. I also bought one of those churches.

  18. Love your decorations and the tree.

    My tree is up. Christmas dishes are out. Love listening to the carols while cleaning and I have started watching the Christmas movies on the Hallmark channel. LOVE Christmas.

  19. I love it all too! I’ve been listening to Christmas music for weeks now. Your tree looks lovely. I love the earthy tones of it.

  20. Love this look! Good for you getting into the spirit sooner rather than later! I have only done the porch and the playhouse…the 1st of my eight trees will go up tomorrow. I can’t wait. I’m excited to see what you have in store next:)

  21. Your tree is beautiful. I love the vintage look of the glass ornaments. 🙂

  22. goodness you and i have the same taste, mine is gold and browns and coppers as well and i have those pine cone ornaments too….looking forward to seeing more!

  23. Your tree and ornaments are georgous! I love Christmas and I love decorating and listening to music too! It’s that time of the year and I hope to do some of it all late this afternoon and evening. First, I’ve got to work because it’s Shop Small Business Day!!

  24. I’m right there with you! I love the sights, sounds and smells of the Christmas season and I soak it in as long as I can. We invested in a good artificial tree years ago. People still feel of it to decide whether it’s real or not. 😀 Some years I go with a theme, and some years I put every old decoration we’ve collected over the years and the ones our children made. It’s up, not sure what I’ll do yet. Your tree is very pretty and I love the little church ornament. Yes, we’ve been playing Christmas CDs since October!

  25. I love Christmas…and start decorating after Thanksgiving!! My tree is up all year round though! I decorate it for every holiday!! I love that!! Now she sits like a blank canvas; as I start adorning here today!!
    Yours is fabulous!!
