First off, “WOW” on all the comments about my outfits. Thank you. So far it looks like outfit #4 is in the lead. After I posted it, I looked back at last year to see what I wore and I wore the top part of #8 and the bottoms of #4, so needless to say I won’t be wearing that this year. I love the way some of you went ahead and mismatched the clothing. But enough about that.
This post was getting long so I broke it down for you . We’ll just talk trees today.
For a split second I seriously thought about leaving our tree like this and decorating it. BUT, I didn’t and it did finally come together. We’ve had the same tree for 14 years and finally let it go. We bought this one on clearance after Christmas last year and we thought since we have high ceilings why not go 9 foot? Hmm..We really didn’t think that one through. Needing the step ladder to decorate wasn’t much fun.
Look carefully. What’s missing? I’ll let you ponder that one.
I bought this ceramic tree at a garage sale for $5.00. I’ve always wanted one and I know some day I’ll get my grandmother’s but until now, this one will do just fine. Doesn’t it look like the snowmen are decorating it? My Mom got me those. She knows my love of snowmen.
This is MY tree. You might remember it from last year. No one gets to help with this tree. I made the ornaments, I put them on. It’s mine. Let’s move on.
This is why I have my own tree. Ha! Ha! The youngest started helping with the decorating about 4 years ago. And things like this started happening.
Here is 2007.
How about 2008?
2009? Any better?
Well this was the scene in 2010 so I was a bit distracted to notice any faux paus on the tree. We moved in Dec. 1st of last year!
So what about this year you ask? You did ask right?
Well I have to be honest. I think he’s getting a little better. In my close inspection of the tree, this is about the worst I found.
There definitely isn’t as many candy canes per square inch any more. So I’d say he’s slowly improving. But he’s still not touching my tree. Ha! Ha!
Well I hope you enjoyed my “little” tree post. Come back to see more of the inside this week!
HAVE A LOVELY DAY MY FRIENDS!
