This year we were stuck using our scrawny fake tree from last year due to the fact that, well, real trees cost money! LOL! Next year, I am putting my foot down and we are getting a real one. I had never ever had a fake tree until I got married. It was always real at both my parents houses and I miss the smell, and the mess, and the chore of watering the tree, and the mess...
Though it is scrawny I think this is the prettiest tree we have ever had. I finally put on some of my teal/blue/silver ornaments that I have been saving up for when we have a plain color themed tree. I didn't think they would look good mixed with all my snowmen and the handmade ones, but we like it. It is homey and I love love to sit in the living room at night with the tree lit whenever I get the chance.
Two of my favorite ornaments. One old and one new. I love Target Christmas clearance! That is where I got all of my glass ball ornaments, and my beads!
The only thing is I wish our topper lit up. It is so hard to find just the right one, this one will do for now, I love the squigly silvery wires, but I want one that glows!
