and as the week went on I added more decorations as I found them, until yesterday. Yesterday is when the tree fell over. We got it back up. I cleaned things up and now everything is back in order. Only two broken bulbs. But there are a few special bulbs I didn't put back on the tree.
The trunk on this tree is crooked. How we didn't see it when we went shopping....who knows. But apparently one of the bolts in the Christmas tree stand bent and that's how it fell.
Ok - so here's the post I had ready to go.
My Shug said we have no room in our house for a real Christmas tree, so I put this big, artificial one up, to prove to him that we do have the room for a tree. Must us women always have to prove everything?
So, the day after Thanksgiving, we got a tree.
We had to find a skinny one though.
but if I had to settle for skinny, I wanted tall.
We found it!
My Shug helps with the lights, and I add the ornaments and other such stuff.
Our ornaments are old glass ones that I've collected over the years at garage sales and antique stores.
This is one end of our room.
