I got my Tree up!



Oh...did you think I meant Christmas Tree?  No, I am not that anxious....but I did get up a tree....my Harvest Tree.

Ro and I were shopping a few years ago and saw a Harvest tree in a very swanky decorating store.  They were asking $300.00.  We looked at it and then each other and said, we can do this.  We each already had a small Christmas tree.

I didn't put up my tree last year, but I did this year.  I am so glad.  Then I decided I needed a pumpkin patch under the tree....


BTW - Bentley is a little put off with me, that is his corner to hide his chew toys!






I hope you are not tired of seeing Fall around our Home yet....I am just getting started.  I told you, I love Fall!!  I hope you enjoy seeing some of our decorations....

I love seeing your decorations and they are all beautiful. I decorated for fall inside so early that most posts showing them are in my oldest archives!

Susan said...

Ceekay, I just love your tree! I would have never thought up this idea in a million years! I will definitely have to try this next year. I am done falling.LOL

Marilou of Lulu's Lovlies and Heartful Creations said...

That is so cool then you will have a head start on having the tree set up already for the holidays! What a great idea, did you do a lot of it with picks for decorating and does the tree already have lights on it or did you have to do that part? I need to think about that as I'm so ready to have Fall! It would be fun to do Halloween and then Nov 1st switch to fall and Dec 1st do Christmas. Thanks for the wonderful photo shoot! Hugs Marilou] Umm then after Christmas we could do New Years and then Valentines day. Wow then we would never have to pack our little trees away! Lol

I love your tree!! I have a very slim 4 ft tree I decorate in my kitchen for Christmas. After Halloween when all the decor goes on sale...I'm buying as many pumpkins as I can on sale to do this tree next Fall!! Thanks for the great idea!

Hi Cee Kay,
Wow, that is a gorgeous tree! Never thought of that, but I love the idea.It works well all season long, that's the kind of decorating I need.
Beautiful post!
Hugs,
Patti

Tina said...

Fall is my favorite season! And I LOVE your Fall tree! I've considered putting one up. I'm going to Hobby Lobby on Friday...and I'm thinking you've talked me in to buying the decor for it now!

Elaine @ Sunny Simple Life said...

I adore it. I keep thinking I will do a year round tree one year and then I never do. It is perfect and loaded with fall goodies. I give it a 10+++

Sweet Meanderings said...

I think you outdid yourself with your harvest tree. It looks gorgeous! Hopefully, Bentley doesn't chew on one of the pumpkins!

Ceekay what a great fall tree! I actually thought about doing one too! I love the way you have it decorated and love the little pumpkin patch underneath it! Very pretty! Martina

I love it, Ceekay!! And you are just starting?! Can't wait to see all of it. I am so inspired by everyone in Blogland. I am looking forward to decorating myself, if I ever get a chance! lol!

Your tree is beautiful!

Tardevil said...

So pretty. Would love to have a harvest tree, but if I get one more box of decorations in my garage, I think my husband will snap!

NanaDiana said...

Ceekay!!! That is just gorgeous! Now I would love to do one of those. How tall is it? I'm thinking about 4'? I LOVE IT! And what a great filler for the time between early Autumn and Christmas. And-just think- you saved $300- Well at least $200!;>) xo Diana

A Hint of Home said...

Your tree is gorgeous! I'm so glad we took the challenge! Love looking at them and they are great conversation pieces!
You did a great job, Ceekay!
Hugs!

Vee said...

That is a very cute idea. I hope that your pup will get over losing his special corner. The pumpkins below and the cat o nine tails at the top just make it!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Ceekay, that is just as cute as can be! You always have such fun things, and this really is the bee's knees.

XO,

I wish you could be here right now. Our tree's are just blazing with color and our temps have warmed up to the upper 70's, it's simply perfect!

Sue said...

Thanks for stopping by today, Ceekay! I liked making those crazy leaf balls- they are my one and only craft project! I am not crafty, by any means. LOL
I love your sweet pumpkin tree. I thought of creating some, using my grapevine trees that I put out for Christmas. Time just got away....
Hope you're enjoying some cooler fall weather. Does it ever get cool in AZ? LOL

shannon i olson said...

very pretty, I always put the Christmas tree where the dog toys go to. Our sweet Casey died this year so we will see if our new doggie Sky is as offended as Bently!

Barb said...

Ceekay, it is simply yummy. I just love it and the pretty little pumpkins around the base....ooooo. Just delightful.

I have one in the attic. My husband will love you when I tell him to dig it out. Haha.

Olive Cooper said...

How cute is that tree? You are really doing fall up right Ceekay. Love the pumpkins under the tree.

What a great idea ~ a Fall Harvest Tree*!!! I love it*!!!

Celestina Marie Designs said...

Hi Ceekay,
I love all your decorations and have had fun catching up on your displays. Love that old tool box and the way you decorated with it. The scarecrows are darling.

Love this Fall tree too and the pumpkin patch below. Too cute. You have so inspired me and I will have to do one next year. Too busy this season. Love the cat tails at the top. So cute to see Bentley's chew toys about. I have chew bones all over my house too. Miss B just drops them where she wants. But so funny how she remembers where she puts them. LOL
Hugs, Celestina Marie

I just read your journal and am glad to hear all the encouragement given. Keep it up!~ Love your tree, how very darling. I say I am going to do this every year, and I don't! Looks really cute.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE your TREE!!!!! OH MY!!! I think I just may have to "COPY" you... I don't want to STEAL - so if you don't mind... may I COPY? I LOVE FALL TOO!!! I love Christmas as well! But my house is FALL all year long... just something about the "colors" that make me feel warm, happy, comfy, cozy.... I think the only thing I'm missing is a PUMPKIN TREE!!!! (well, I'm sure that there is much more I'm missing too - but for now...) All I want is a PUMPKIN tree!!!! Oh.... my family is going to.... probably lock me up! LOL!!!! THANKS FOR SHARING!!!! I'll be by often to DREAM about my pumpkin tree! HAPPY FALL!!!!

Andrea at Opulent Cottage said...

It's so pretty!! My family revolted when I tried to do sunflowers on the Christmas tree one year (remember it in Country Living?!) but surely they can't complain if I copy yours for fall :)))) I hope you are enjoying some wonderful fall weather. Thank you for the inspiration!
xoxo, Andrea

Ceekay, I LOVE your Fall tree! It looks beautiful. We did a fall tree where I used to work and it was always my favorite! I went there the other day and it is all spooky hallowen and I didn't like it as much. Happy Fall! It is my favorite season too! XO, Pinky
