Christmas Living Room and Tree

The tree in the living room is 12 feet tall.
It reaches to the top of the tray ceiling.
It's the tree that gets all the sparkly, silver, white and crystal.
It has everything from my
collection of Waterford.
to Dollar Store Snowflakes.
I have 12 days of Christmas
in the Waterford ornaments.
1981, the year we got married.
View into the living room from family room.
View from the foyer. 
Lighted wreath on room dividers.
There are several needlepoint stockings
still looking for a mantel.
End table with holly and Spode coasters.
The coffee table is topped with two cloches, 
a glass one and the birdcage cloche, 
that I found at the antiques mall
 mentioned in the previous post
Both are on silver trays. 
The birdcage cloche is filled with
silver trees.
The glass cloche is filled with crystal trees.
The sofa table.
Gold beads spill out of an antique cut crystal
biscuit barrel.
My little table is moved behind the other
couch during the re-arraging. 
A good beaded wreath is hung on the 
curtain tie-backs
I bring out my favorite antique quilt to drape
 across the back of the couch.
Looking up.
Lucy and the tree.
The last thing I do is to always check 
the view form the outside looking in. 
Do you do that too?
