    I have often been asked if I will show my Christmas trees. Trees plural. We put up 8 - 10 trees each year. One in every room.

    Usually I send a photo but this year I decided to blog about each tree.

    If you are interested in seeing them today is day 1 and is my daughter's tree.

    I'll give you a hint, the theme is pink.

    I'm not a huge fan of pink, but that is a stunning tree! I really like the bead and safety pin angel, lovely.

    Those bead kits were picked up at Walmart last year for $1 or $1.50. I saw them the other day in the craft section for same price.

    They are fairly large too. At least 3 - 4 inches tall.

    It took the girls about 2 - 3 hours to piece them.

    It was a great craft for them to do together and to add an ornament to their trees.

    Tomorrow is the blue tree.
