I have not had a real tree in many years.
The kids do not care either way, and I had several
artificial that I put up each year.
A few days ago I popped into Lowes
and entered by the garden and passed
this cute little noble who was reduced to 15.00.
He was very fresh and I just had to bring him home.
The House of Hatten set I had
planned to use in this room just like last year
was too large for my little 4 footer so I
just layered on the tin stars and hearts that
go with it, and added some red glitter hearts.
It is so cheerful.
I adore the topper, he is very rare, so even though too
large for my very noble noble I tossed him up there.
I never use the same stuff in the same
place from year to year.
This year is a mostly "greens" year once more.
I spent years only doing white
throughout the house,
but now in the family room I'm leaning toward
mustards and reds.
I was only going to do a wee bit
but with bins full of greens I just kept a
plunkin' em down and it's a forest in here.
Just like my turkey,
easy to set up and take down.
I'm going easy and "very green" this year.
Adapting to all kinds of change.
Getting old is not for sissies.
