Old Fashion Christmas Tree

I love Christmas trees. 

I love the old fashion Christmas trees that aren’t trimmed into a perfect triangle.

The kind where the glass balls can swing freely from the ends. 

The kind that you walk through the woods and find the perfect one and cut it down. 

The kind that is dripping with tinsel. 

Like this…

But I did!

And right in my own yard.

Well, maybe I went into my neighbor’s yard just a foot or two.

What do you think of the tree stand? 

I have another one in the kitchen.

Tomorrow, I am going to cut one to go in my daughter’s room. I will have to do it early! She comes home tomorrow! I know just the thing I’m going to use for the stand! The small milk jug we used for flowers in her wedding. I’m going to use the wooden ornaments my mom gave me so many years ago and I’m going to load it up with tinsel!

I guess I love these old fashion trees because they remind me of yesteryear when things seemed simpler; when life seemed slower and Christmas felt like it would never come.

What is a special Christmas tradition you have? I’d love to hear about it!

  1. One time a pine tree started growing in our yard and we decided to let it grow until it was big enough to be a Christmas tree. A few years later we did just that. A bit of a Charlie Brown tree but we grew it and it was free and it was fun to do.

  2. Good Morning, love all the decoration and Butch is jealous of the porch and the view from it. Know you had to decorate the bathroom also so lets see what you did there. the pine smell through the whole house must be wonderful. Have a great weekend and enjoy the time with the family.

  3. They are beautiful…I love the trees of yesteryear…Merry Christmas to you and your family!!!

Hearing from you makes my day!
