Oh, Christmas Tree

Hello, Dear Ones! I have almost forgotten to show you my Christmas tree! Oh, yes, I have a Christmas tree in the living room in front of the windows so all of our neighbors can see the twinkly little lights! I just love lights at Christmas time, don't you?
 Here she is! We love this tree. She is big and fat and full of branches. And...she's fake. But she holds another secret...
 She has a flat top. Yes, ma'am, she does. We have had her so long and love her so much that when we moved here she wouldn't fit. She was just too too tall. So Mr. Precious got his hack saw and sawed off two or three feet from the top! So she really does have a flat top!
 So I had to make her explosion a lot bigger. I added more ribbon, more bows till she looked just right!
 Unfortunately, a beautiful angel or a shiny twinkly star will never grace the top of her head because it's flat! Well, we still love her and believe she'll be around for many more Christmases, God willing.
 She's filled with an array of Christmas ornaments. No themes here, just lots of ornies. I love color and color is what you'll find at my house, especially at Christmas. Oh, I found some narrow decco mesh and twirled that around my tree. It's wider than a ribbon but not as wide as the regular mesh and I loved how it turned out!
 It's almost dark and you can see the twinkly lights making a sweet glow on everything.
 Now the tree is at it's most beautiful now! I could sit in here all evening just looking at it and the way the living room looks in Christmas lights.
We've been keeping a little two year old quite a bit lately and he is very interested in all of the Christmas balls. I think this is my favorite snap, although a little blurry, of all! ;)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~
