O Christmas Tree

Yes, I know I've shown pictures of the "big" tree already but I have another tree. It's in the kitchen. I put a table top one in the kitchen last year & then after Christmas I found a 7.5 ft. slim tree on sale at Hob Lob for $40. I had a gift card (Thanks Beth!!) so essentially it was free!! Can't beat that. Here it is.
We went on a cruise in January & I decided then that I would start getting Christmas ornaments from everywhere we go on vacation & put them on the kitchen tree. Well, aside from the cruise, the only other place I went this year was San Diego. Needless to say I needed some filler ornaments! The big tree is done in burgundy & gold so I wanted this one to be different. I decided that red, silver & green would be pretty. I decided that because I saw some pretty ornaments that I liked at Sam's & those were the colors.  
This little fishy came from Costa Maya. I love the pink lips! 
 I love reindeer & have them all over the big tree so of course the little tree needed one.
 I love these puffy things (I know you do too Kara!!). I wish I would've bought more. I haven't seen them anywhere else.
It's MICKEY!!! I bought this one when we went to Disney World 2 years ago. I know he's gold. I originally bought him for the big tree but he fits better here. I'll be adding an ornament from Universal Studio's & another one from Disney very soon. We leave this time next Thursday!!! SOOOO excited!!
Here's the big tree! I know you've seen it but I never get tired of looking at it!!

I'm linking up to the Christmas tree party at Thrifty Decor Chick
