I feel a little bit bad about making you look at photos of my Christmas tree. I think it’s a lot like our parents making their friends look at slides of their family vacation.
Come to think of it, I make you look at vacation pictures too. Oh, well. What’s a few torturous photos between friends?
I wanted a white Christmas tree forever. Maybe just a little longer than forever. FringeMan thinks they are odd, like so odd, they are freakish. He thinks trees should be green. Go figure. He’s got no imagination at all.
About 3 years ago, we needed a tree and the white ones were cheapest. The angels sang Hallelujah and I hauled it home as fast I could.
Our old tree looked like Phyllis Diller, and when I tried the same look on this white tree, it was her worst hairdo yet; however, I eventually found this lovely vintage glass topper at a yard sale and it’s crowned her white plastic head ever since.
I’m not that person, but for years, I wanted to be. I even tried to be once, but I just cannot stick to one color, look, or style. I’m 100% hodgepodge. I love colors, and glitters, and shapes, and randomness. I can’t help myself.
I would give you a Christmas tour of my house, but honestly, most of the decorating is on the tree. We don’t go hog wild crazy and change everything in the house for Christmas. We just sprinkle holiday cheer instead of gushing it on every flat surface. Don’t get me wrong, I like gushing, but we are more of a sprinkle
and ice-cream kind of family.
Then they yell at each other for unwrapping the wrong ornament and a fight ensues, but it’s all glittery and gold in the light of a white tree.
Now tell me about your tree. Do you use ribbons, color schemes, beads, white lights or colored? Real or artificial??
