    I envy those of you who have the space to put up two or more trees. I do put up a simple one at my dry cleaning store, but since I work 60 hours at the store, Im lucky yo get a single tree up at home! HaHa

    Thanks Olga, and thanks for the youtube video, poor Snoopy the world just doesn’t appreciate those of us who march to the beat of our own drummer.

    Wow! Your display is amazing! That must have taken quite some time to set up.

    I thought I recognized the North Pole Series...I too have many pieces and ran out of room. I'm a big fan of Dept 56; their products are so nicely done.

    Thank you for the offer on train set info; since I really don't know much about them. We'll get one eventually...

    LOL..Just trying to think - 8 Christmas trees, a village, three mantles and a staircase to decorate, and a train set (one day) - I guess I could start on Labor Day. And I'm too much of a perfectionist to let anyone help.

    Eight trees WOW! You do have your work cut out for you. We have some friends who decorate on a really grand scale. She decorates every square inch of rather large house. She even takes the handles off the kitchen cabinets and replaces them with candy cane handles she had custom made. They start decorating in September.

    The candy cane handles sound adorable!

    It is lots of work and daunting when I think about doing it, but it is almost theraputic once I get started. There is nothing like twinkling Christmas lights and the fireplaces lighting up the house during the holidays. And I just love the reaction from the little ones when they see first it. I will post lots of pictures!

    Look forward to seeing your pictures. I love seeing what other folks are doing with their décor.
