Looking great Robb! Your place is super sharp, and I like the silhouette of the tree behind the glass in the courtyard. Well done!

Cheers,

We don't decorate the tree, the curtains, color wheel and rotating stand are already over the top!

Love it, Sputnikmoss! Is the tree new or vintage? I think my grandparents had that same tree w/the color wheel.

It is my husband's from when he was little. His mom let him take it a few years ago. Last week we found a vintage rotating tree stand so now it's perfect!

Wow, you guys! These trees are looking sweet. You all have such cool pads and most excellent decorations/lighting!

That is a great shot of the bulb and sputnik lamp! Funny you should mention making it a christmas card 'cause here's what we did...

Keep 'em coming

Nothing says Christmas like a Moai, a UFO lighter, and a miniature silver tinsel tree...

Wishing everyone a Happy Holidays, and a Happy New Year.
Here is our contribution for the holidays.

The Target wreath over the hearth. There is another one on the front door, but that's currently a construction site and can not be seen for the bags of concrete.

Since my friend John in Montreal posted his tree, I thought I'd better represent Toronto.

You may want to note that the green chair is called the "Canadian Coconut" since it resembles the Nelson Coconut Chair. However, it's interesting in that it was produced years before his, in 1950, and was made by a Winnipeg architecture professor (A.J. Donahue) in his basement. He used his students as cheap labour and legend has it only about 250 were produced!

Merry Christmas from Toronto, Ontario, Canada!

It's been a while since I checked in at LL. WOW you guys are over the top! Lots of beautiful trees! Makes me jealous!

Tiki christmas twists are cool, and I love the cats hanging out on the tree skirts too. 8)

Thanks everybody for letting us take a peek into your holidays!

Here's to hoping you all have a great holiday season!

We don't have a REAL ranch-so the "plastic" type has to do. We also don't have the space in a tiny apt. (good thing SILVER tree don't need all their branches)---Merry Kitschmas!
