o tannenbaum, etc.



This is my little christmas tree...well, not so little. It's almost 7 feet tall, but I put it on a table, to make it taller. It looks kind of like a big pipe cleaner, but I like it.

I bought it a few weeks ago when Target first put it out, because it was on sale. I I liked that it was so slender...and what they call "champagne" colored...kind of a slightly tarnished silver. There's no good reason for me to have wasted money on it, since no one will probably ever see it...no one ever visits really...but it cheers the place up for me at least.

My place is so small that I needed something thin. I've moved it everywhere I could think of in the place, but it didn't look quite right anywhere, so it's ended up in the corner....in a time out.

I've decorated it with just my old silver ornaments and a few white ones. I'd thought of buying new green and blue ones, but decided not to. Partially because I have no money left, and partially because it would probably be too busy. I have put all the blown glass icicles that I've stolen from my mother, however. We used to use them on the tree when I was a kid. They look like fancy swizzle sticks.

Once I brave her attic again, who knows what kind of stuff I may recover up there.

I love the "tone on tone" color. It is really magical.

Loving the tree! It's got a great mod shape and I like the champagne shimmer.

Wait - this is a Christmas Tree? My God I have to start shopping.

Have you asked for cha cha heels?

I have a 1950's gold tinsel Christmas tree...I love it. Something different.

You decorated yours beautifully...just the right amount of restraint!

Beautiful tree! Imagine a whole forest of them in different heights.

Just to be safe, I'm staying away from Target. All I need is another tree. I have, uh, a collection of them.
