So this is my first real traditional style Christmas tree in years. It seems I’ve killed the norfolk pines or other plants I’ve tried to make into Christmas trees the last few years so I figured it would be ok to buy one that’s already been hacked down. I guess I’m voting with my purchase it’s okey to harvest trees for the holidays but when it boils down to it I’m actually just helping some Christmas tree farmer so it’s all good!

Don’t make fun of the bows as I made them to keep the tree less commercial. The lights are LED so energy efficient and don’t burn hot so safer. The little braided angel is from my childhood and the tree stand we bought but it’s made super well and while isn’t über attractive, I think it’s fine without a skirt!


Zita and Picollo were not too impressed and refused to help out!
