Just was curious as I looked at Lisa Robertson's facebook and it seems she is already decorating. Way too early for me... I know someone that use to leave hers up all year!!

I bought the tree recently QVC offered (last year I bought it, never opened the box and sent it back).
Hopefully, this year I will at least set up the little 5 ft tree. I'm posting here because I like just lights on the thing! This new one is supposed to have lots and lots of lights.
I have plenty of bulbs and stuff but I think they make the tree look ummm...messy? My girls go away for Christmas so it's just me and it's mainly one day.
I find it hard to believe people put a real Christmas tree up this early but as I've gotten old(er) I am way less judgmental and I feel like everyone does what works best for them. Maybe some people feel they need the 'cheer'. Today everyone needs different things to cheer them...who am I to judge what makes another person happy and who does it hurt? Right?
I will say years ago I have one of those fake huge trees in a pot in the corner in the TV room. My late husband put tiny lights on it. I never plug it in, but I could if I wanted to and guess what? I sure wouldn't feel weird or guilty because that would mean I'd need the cheer right about then.....

I admit in the past I have, but it was the smaller tree that goes in the den in the back of the house. I decorated it in a woodland theme and kind of liked the looks of the birds and things.
This year I'm passing on the tree. I decided to spend Christmas alone (well, not really ~ I'll have one of my dogs with me) at a rented cabin in the mountains. My husband couldn't care less about Christmas and my family (what there is of it) is crazy so I made my plans and I'm sticking to them!
Given that, it seems silly to go through all the work if I'm not even going to be there. :-)

Lisa has left one tree up in her master bedroom all year- the ones she is decorating now are to showcase her merchandise that she sells on LisaRobertson.com- she also does a live facebook chat every sunday night at 7pm est for an hour to chat about her weeks workth of merchandise- she has been doing this now for 2 years and seems to have quite a following, not sure if all those people buy as alot of her merchandise is very pricey - she sells fake flowers for about $50 which is alot higher than what you can get at the craft stores- she travels alot to get merchandise and always does remotes from where she is at- her group has planned a cruise next april also- it is very interesting how she is turning a nice hobby into a business- i guess it is called reiventing yourself

If I'm understanding this correctly, you will be spending Christmas alone in a cabin while your husband will be spending it alone at home? I can't imagine doing that as it would make me very sad to be apart from my husband on Christmas day but I guess it's whatever people are comfortable with.
