This year I said, “Mr. P, I am NOT putting up our fat, million foot tall tree in our tiny little living room. I can’t take it. I’ll suffocate.” And, it’s true I will. So we went out and got a smaller one and I’m pleased to say it’s quite pretty, and I am breathing just fine with it in the room.
Because so much of our
lives stuff is packed away in boxes and our ornament box is quite hidden behind it all, I opted out of climbing in the attic and/or garage and/or basement, wherever they may be. I just got a few sleeves of ornaments at the dollar store. The same ones on my mantel actually.
They’re a beautiful muted gold color. Not so brassy, gold. Just a “quiet” gold if you will. I added 900 or so lights and some cream colored burlap. Now all she needs is a star, maybe a few picture frames ala pottery barn? We shall see!
