A pretty tree to brighten any room.
Or blind you, one of the two!
Thank you Julie, and here is Santa, he'll stop by your tree tonight!
Or how about THIS one?
I have only one question: Why?
Youngatheart.7.4.12, I have heard on the radio even big shopping centers are now decorating this way, but I am with you on this one, WHY?
To each his/her own!
This is the kind of thing I grew up with! Uggghhhh!
Thomas3.20.2010 YUCK! Sorry but YUCK.
Doesn't exactly bring back a nostalgia, huh?
Thomas3.20.2010 I remember when my mother eyed one of those sort of longingly and all five of us kids just about went through the roof. She DID insist that the tinsel had to be hung one strand at a time from the inside of the tree to the outside of the tree. That started in the early 60's...we had "perfect" trees and cats filled with tinsel. I don't use tinsel, I HATE it.
My oldest daughter asked me what my color scheme for my tree is this year...I said, color scheme? She said "Everyone has a color scheme"...I said, "Who ARE you?" I have blue lights on the outside of the house because it is my favorite color but the inside tree is every color I could find and every silly ornament that we could fit on its small branches. I LOVE it. My son and his wife are trying a living tree that they hope to keep alive in their house for years to come. They have three wild cats and a dog, I do not see a good outcome here.
Isn't that funny Thomas, blue is my favorite color too, and we are born under the same sign. And maybe is not so funny, our stone is Blue topaz
And to me, the Christmas tree I grew up with had very few decorations, apples and oranges were so rare that we were using matching sticks to be able to hang them in the tree as decorations, and our moms made sugar candies, we were wrapping them, and made them into decorations too...we were saving all kind of pretty papers from a year to another to make them into something like this:
Our tree is a bit more modern
I don't have a place to put a tree so I celebrate vicariously. :-)
Here's a picture of my tree of 2011. I think it's the last tree I decorated. :-(
Here's mine! No tinsel this year, elvan - not sure why!!!
That is GORGEOUS Youngatheart.7.4.12 and LOOK no color scheme! That's a big tree. My tree is not much taller than I am, it was the right size for this house.
Merry Christmas...oh jonescarp.aka.dale.Jan_2007, that is too much!
Perhaps you had no tinsel because you forgot you didn't have a cat to play with it?
I did a little research, apparently hanging the Christmas tree upside down is an old East European custom, and it was meant to represent the Holly Trinity. Now it became a marketing tool, a novelty in decorating, leaving more room to place the presents
So Pretty...Merry Christmas!
Thank you I have no Christmas tree this year !
MERRY CHRISTMAS !
Yum, may please have a branch?
Of Course. It's A Take What You Need And Leave The Rest Tree.
It's at the Gateway Mall but likely closed. :-(
Likely I'll leave the lights
Good we'll reuse them.
Weekly or monthly delivery? :-)
