a tree...for me

So this Christmas, I decided to not put up Champagne Slim again.

Last year I festooned all 6 and a half champagne feet of him with 20,000 dollars worth of plastic dollar tree ornaments. It was like Christmas at Versailles here.
You know, the Versailles Trailer Park off of Interstate 10.

And no one even saw him.

Ah well.

This year I was too lazy to go up in the attic decided to go in a different direction:
no plastic at all. 
It's an all organic Xmas.

On a whim the other day, I bought a little tree from Whole Foods. 
She looked so cute.
After a bit of comparison shopping today, however, I realize now that WF had raped me....again.
But well, my tree is free range, right?
I'm sure it is.

Today I pulled out a few of the smaller vintage glass ornaments (especially the little clip on birds) I could find without going up into the attic....and dressed it up with battery lights that cost as much as the tree.  

For some reason my landlord doesn't want me lighting candles on the tree or something.
Since no one will probably see this tree either (ahem),
I took some bad cell phone photos.

It's adorable!

And never compare prices *after* you've bought something; nothing good can come of it.

You spent $20,000 on plastic ornaments?!!!

You make Liberace seem frugal. Jx
