  1. Your neighbors trees are so pretty! Please thank them for sharing with us. It’s always fun to look at people’s decorations. I love when my neighbors decorate outside. I usually do too, but I’ve been so busy this year, I just haven’t had time. I got my tree decorated and a few other things out, but that’s it. I’m having company, and I still have to clean, so if I can get everything else done, maybe I’ll try to put out a few more decorations. Did any of your neighbors decorate outside that maybe you could show us? I loved this post, Brenda. Merry Christmas to all!

  2. Beautiful post….Merry Xmas to all๐ŸŽ„โ„โ˜ƒ๏ธ๐Ÿ’•

  3. All three very nice. So nice too when you can see Christmas tree lights thru the windows. And Boomer got his picture taken too! Looks like a happy doggie.

  4. Each one is unique and charming. I love seeing the lights through the windows at night.

  5. You have the best neighbors and neighborhood. Their trees are unique.
    What a lovely community you have. . Merry Christmas!

  6. I love looking at other people’s Christmas trees. I do look at trees on YouTube and Pinterest – you know, the ones that YouTubers get for free but very expensive decorations and ornaments if they “advertise” the products, and the Pinterest trees that are so loaded with stuff you can’t even tell there is a tree underneath everything! Lots of eye candy – often very expensive eye candy (try pricing ornament sets from Balsam Hill, for instance). Lisa has a very minimalist approach; her tree reminds me of the tree in Charley Brown’s Christmas classic. Ron and Pat’s tree is the kind of tree I like – one decorated with items collected and/or hand-made over years, decorations filled with memories of Christmases past and with a few new ones sometimes added in that will become cherished “oldies but goodies” in the future. John’s tree reminds me very much of the decorations my Mom used to use on our Christmas trees in the 1960s and evoked a sentimental feeling. I love the look of the “tinsel” garland with the little white snowflakes that (I think) are wrapped around it (or maybe part of the tinsel garland?) The snowflakes are very subtle but can still be seen, and with the addition of the silver ornaments, the contrast against the green of the tree is beautiful. I’m pretty much a maximalist tree decorator. I swear every year I’m not going to buy any new ornaments, and every year I do. But I’ve also got ornaments and decorations that go back decades, so I have plenty of items to rotate in and out of my rooms (and on my Christmas trees), year after year.

  7. love that nautical-themed tree & the lighted nativity. I have been on a few neighborhood night drives to look at decorated trees in house “picture windows.” It’s fun to see other’s creativity. I knew someone who had a tree FULL of intricate gold metal ornaments. Very simple but elegantly beautiful.

    I created a Victorian themed tree many years ago with chintz floral ornaments. Maybe next year I will have a theme tree. This year’s mini tree has gold ball trim & mostly gold ornaments. Instead of buying new, I used what I had on hand.

    Merry Christmas to you & everyone who comes here to share!

  8. Brenda, what talented neighbors you have. The trees are beautiful and personalized which makes the trees special…..Boomer is a cutie…
    Have a fun week before Christmas
