I love the led peacock BC...there must be a theme with the picture above the fireplace. Really lovely.

Nothing at all wrong with that beautiful tree Andy..it's beautiful.

My little 3 ft. micro fiber tree I ordered for our little computer/tv room has yet to arrive and I'm feeling deprived. I try to remember that many don't put up the Tree until Christmas Eve.

Cool! I want one!

Nice. What is a pre-lit tree? Does it come with the lights on it and you add ornaments? A friend always puts her try away decorated so she only has to take the cover off and it is up.

Yes, it comes with the lights on it. We added our own ornaments.

We have a Christmas tree bag and will use that to store it in a semi "ready to go" condition.

Andy, I love that tree-top Santa!

My tree is going up tomorrow.

We're always in this room anyway, so this is the place to have it. I'll post a picture later as it's suppose to arrive Dec. 11th with free shipping.
It arrived last night and we love it!

Late delivery

UPS was running late, and it was dark. I put a candle on the front porch with the UPS logo under it to make sure we got it!
We got it up, and the light show on the fiber optics is great. The colors change, and we see red, white, blue, green and yellow changing.
Fascinating.
Also Kayelle, creative as usual, found a pretty scarf we picked up in our travels to use as tree skirt.

Nice little tree Kay, and pretty peacock décor, BC.

I'll get a pic of mine eventually, it's been up for 2 weeks now.

Here's our tree. We picked this beauty up last year and I have to say, I'm now a huge fan of pre-lit trees. Just fluff the branches, add ornaments, and DONE! Plus, our pesky cats don't seem interested in climbing an artificial tree.

And it's just so PURDY!!
