My Christmas Tree is admittedly a little wonky. The beads do not help the situation any. Let’s just say that no one will ever be asking me to join the Christmas Tour of Homes.
The other day, someone on Facebook asked to see my tree. That led to me taking way too many pictures of our quirky ornaments, which in turn will lead to you seeing way too many pictures of my ornaments.
I. Am. Sorry.
It’s all done in the name of holiday cheer, Christmas spirit, and Goodwill toward men.
Or maybe I just like ornament pictures. Whatever.
I’m pretty sure no one expected me to a have a perfectly decorated tree with colors and ornaments that matched. It’s just not my thing. Instead, we have a nice mix of vintage and fun new, modern ornaments.
I asked if my Facebook friends had theme trees and I was surprised by how many people do. I didn’t realize it was such a big thing.
So, now I’m asking you. Do you have a theme tree in your home?
And if you do, what’s your theme?
This past weekend, I hauled the tree and all the boxes of decorations downstairs and we un-taped the tree box and pulled out my shiny white plastic tree, but there was a yellow-brown spot on it. The kids and my mom said it smelled bad. They think it was a mouse.
I can’t smell, so I refuse to pass judgement, especially since the closet all these boxes are kept in is in my bedroom. If I allow my mind to wallow in the mire, I will disgust myself. We are not going there. No way! Besides, neither the closet nor the box had any other signs of funk, so it’s still a bit of a mystery to me.
Regardless, we needed another tree. Pronto.
We got the same tree and put up the lights, because although the tree is pre-lit, we need more – MORE LIGHT.
If you stare at my tree for too long, you’ll go blind. It’s that bright.
Wrestling with the stringers of lights is my least favorite part of assembling the tree. If there’s a right way to put on lights, I don’t know it. Finally, we got all the lights strung only to find out they were broken. Good grief! It was a Christmas fail. My mom ran to the store, got some new lights, and saved the day. Thank you mom.
I put the extra lights in my office and I may keep them up all year-long. Fa, la, la, la, la.
Have you decorated?
How many trees do you put up??
