Every year, a local home improvement store puts up a grand Christmas tree display. Their trees are chock-full of ornaments (because of course they are trying to sell them!) and loaded with fun things. I like to go and look at the unusual items that they put in the trees: "the more you look, the more you see!" I was so impressed with last year's display, and wished I could have taken pictures. This year I plucked up the courage to ask if I may take some photos, and was graciously given permission.
I don't have the best camera, and had a limited amount of time the day I did this, so please pardon any blurry pictures!
Scroll down to see just some of the themed trees that are on display there. There's an "at the lake" tree towards the end of the post, too!
This tree is full of soft red-and-white felt ornaments
I like the new take on the candy cane stripes!
It was on the Cowboy tree last year that I realized that I could do whatever I wanted when I decorated my tree, even use furniture; they had little wooden step-stools tucked into the tree all around, with horses painted on them, I believe.
Signs are used a lot in these trees, and they fill in the spaces quite well . Some are framed and some not; some have warm sentiments and some amusing sayings. Plain pine cones, big and small, dotting the tree also make them "authentic."
A little horse-shoe tree sat by the Cowboy tree.
A small camper sits under this tree. Perhaps it is for the mice to sleep in, so they will not stir on Christmas Eve!
