Did I mention that I wanted a brown Christmas tree this year? Well, I did. But the one I found and liked was not in my budget. Yesterday, I found this green tree at a thrift store. I like the size. 9 foot. The fullness is great with lots of places to hang ornaments. Not too wide, but not really a pencil tree. And in my budget. Yea!
If you squint your eyes in a low light setting, you will see that it has bark on the trunk.
I was all kinds of excited at the thrift store when we plugged it in and all the lights worked. Yee haw!
Now. Look back at the top picture. See the lack of full lighting? Apparently, the ride home caused some rebellion and the lights don't want to work for their new owner. I guess I'll get the ladder out and start playing, sweet talking and wiggling the wires/bulbs. Ugh. I feel like I am living an episode of Seinfeld.
Today, I stopped by a different thrift store and saw these twins.
What color, exactly, is that? Reckon their lights work?
I like this print. The back is lined with newspaper dated 1972. Nope. It's not very old (said the 40 something year old blogger). But, it's cool!
While standing in line at another thrift store, I got bored and started taking pictures of my soon to be purchases. A bag of gold rope.
I'm loving the colors of these ornaments.
How's your shopping going? When the time comes, I hope your lights work for you. Every single one of 'em.
