The christmas tree

Some of the nonsense that I am posting is just something that I would like to remember later. From year to year, I change the look of the Christmas tree and decorations. Evidently using the previous years decorations and just trying to put
a new spin on them. I would love to buy fresh greenery every year but as I have said before, I struggle with keeping the house clean as it is... The tree is an authentic dead Fraser Fir. The trauma of falling twice must have given it a heart attack to hasten the normally slower process of dying. My sweet friend Nicole(all my friends are named this just various spellings) gave me a flocked fir wreath, which I am using as a centerpiece on the coffee table. Topped with a tin lantern I recently bought at an estate sale, this became the easiest project ever to be completed in this house. I am trying a simpler approach to decorating in this house and not trying to see how much junk I can display.
