O Christmas Trees
We finally got our tree up and decorated this year after a slight change of plans.
I have been mentioning to Honey Do for several years that our 21 year old artificial tree was looking a bit tired and we needed a new one.
In fact, it shed more needles than a cut tree!
And as we were putting it up this year …. the tree gave a sigh and fell apart!
Honey Do, therefore, took a chainsaw and cut down a tree in our yard: a cedar.
If you’ve never had a cedar tree, then you’re not familiar with their quirks as Christmas trees. Cedar trees tend to be wonky but smell wonderful.
Here’s a sampling of our Christmas trees through the years.
Red bows and popcorn balls in cellophane — (I decorated with non breakables when my children were small. Less stress!)
My mother, brother and I made these God’s eyes one afternoon when I was young with popsicle sticks and yarn.
Crocheted snowflakes, pinecones and candy canes
This tree had garland made from packing peanuts, fishing line, and colored cellophane wrap. What was I thinking ?! I must’ve had A LOT of time on my hands that year to make that garland!!
Pretty tree with ornaments we’ve collected and the children made for us.
Last year’s tree, I decorated with brass house numbers and brass letters that I found at a thrift store for next to nothing.— love that!
And this year’s tree in all its wonky glory!!
Each day is bringing us just a little closer to Christmas!
