‘Tis the season to admire Christmas trees! Oh, how I love decorated trees. Never get my fill. I enjoy them so much that each year readers and authors send me photos of their trees and I post them on my blog all through December.
Today I’m sharing photos taken at the General Crook House in Fort Omaha. It’s a lovely historic home, and though the furnishing aren’t original, the home and decor have been restored and furnished with items true to the time period.
The one above on the left is on an upstairs bathroom. Many of the trees included themes from nature.
On the right above is a tree standing in one of the main rooms at the front of the house.
This one below left is in Mrs. Crook’s bedroom. It is decorated with White House ornaments that the historical society collects and adds to each year. Notice the red and white quilt on the bed. Ever notice how small those beds were? Men and women were MUCH smaller a hundred years ago.
If you want to see more trees throughout the month, check them out at The Annual Christmas Tree Tour: http://cherylstjohn.blogspot.com/
You’ll note one decorated with flags.
This piano is in the formal dining room.
And now just for fun I’ll add interesting furniture and architecture. Enjoy!
Purples lovers will dig this decor!
Animal heads hang on the walls – I didn’t take any pics of those.
General Crook would have loved Cabellas. lol
Hope you’re getting into the Christmas spirit.
Please send me a photograph of your Christmas tree and a paragraph about it or about your family’s Christmas traditions.
I would love to feature YOUR tree on The Great Christmas Tree Tour.
