A Day of Work & Christmas Trees

As some of you know, some may not know, I have not had a regular job in over a year.  In addition to not having said job, I also closed up my cleaning business in the fall of 2008.  The economy hit my business really hard and I went from cleaning 3-4 houses a week in the first half of the year, to cleaning 3-4 a month by September.  That being said I had a few regular customers that I still work for on an 'on call' basis. 

Today I cleaned a house for one of those customers.  I usually work for her 1-2 times a month and I love to clean her house.  When I arrived this morning I found that she had decorated her house and since I have not decorated mine yet, I fell in love with her decorations. 

Thought I would share a few pictures I took (with her permission). 

This tree is 12 feet tall, and so beautiful.

This is the 'Candy' tree

This is the tree she put on her porch for the 'dogs'
That ribbon has paw prints on it, so cute!  

So now I need to get inspired an put up a tree at my house.  My grandchildren will not be happy if they arrive on Christmas morning and 'The Graminator' does not have a tree and stockings hung by the chimney with care.  They might divorce me! 


  1. wow, that is a gorgeous tree!!

  2. What beautiful trees! I'm a throw it up kind of girl...set it and forget it. LOL

  3. cool trees! mine is a little one but it's brightly lit and makes us feel merry!

  4. Now I feel stupid for telling you to put up pictures when you already had, but for some reason this just NOW showed up in my Google Reader :(. Sorry about that! But I do love the trees.

  5. Beautiful! I have a 12 foot tree and LOVE it!
