Our $20 Christmas Tree

The Red Star Topper came from the North Pole Christmas Shop (North Pole, Alaska)

All of our vintage ornaments are on this little tree!

It fits right in the corner of our family room without having to remove or move any furniture.

And A Very Merry Christmas To All of You!

You don't have to spend lots of money to have a beautifully decorated room for Christmas.  

This is the slim Christmas tree we bought at Target for $25 - on sale for $20 this year.

    nice that you didn't have to rearrange the furniture too, always a bonus!

    They'll fit in anywhere and so cute.
