My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Tree # 2

Good Morning!

Here is the picture of my second tree. ( You can see the first tree here.) This formal tree is in the corner of my dining room.

I didn't set out to be a psycho with 3 Christmas trees, but when Target has a sale, and the tree staring at you is $5.00, it must be bought. Yes, that's not a typo... $5.00!

I mean, you can barely buy a cup of coffee for $5.00! How could I NOT buy this??? Are you looking at it? Sheer perfection. I love it. And did I mention, it was Five Dollars! My living room tree was the one with the formal white and gold thing for all the years we lived here, but then my Mom passed away. So, with me being an only child and therefore keeper of all things sentimental, it was a good thing I bought this five dollar tree and packed it away for, "Ya never know when ya might need it."

I even had friends borrow this one Christmas when they were selling their house. They didn't want to do the real tree thing with all the uncertainty, so they loved having this tree that year.

I never got so much out of $5.00 in my whole life.

Have a great day, and if you have a story about a tree or ornament I would love to hear it!

Oh, Karin, your trees are just beautiful! You certainly share the Christmas spirit with these! And what a bargain! Love it! I did almost as well with Walmart last year but not five dollars! Have a wonderful holiday! Blessings to you!
