My little tree

 This is my little tree. It is about 3 feet tall. It is fully lit with twinkling lights and covered with unbreakable ornaments. It's perched on the table between the chair and couch in my living room.

Don't the walls look like they are painted with watercolours? I took a few shots until I got one where most of the lights in the tree were on. Not an easy thing to do with a digital camera (there's that delay, you know?)!

This is the star on the top of the tree. It has special meaning for me because my Mum gave it to me years ago. It's made of twigs and twine painted gold, with bits of (fake) evergreen bough and a little wooden red heart stuck on it. I love it!

To ensure the safety of the tree, and its decorations, I have used a bungee cord to secure it to the table! I am hoping that makes it a lot less interesting to Lila...

We'll see if it survives the season. I didn't even put it up last year because she was only seven months old. She's getting close to two now, but hasn't slowed down even one iota. *sigh*

Merry Christmas, everyone!


  1. TreeMendous! .................Taxi! :¬)


  2. Beautiful and love the star. Good luck with Lila...

  3. That's a pretty little tree. The topper is especially lovely and I like the story behind it.

    My parents put early Christmas trees inside the play pen, but it didn't help.

    Merry Christmas!

  4. I like that tree, lots of character!

    Merry Christmas!

  5. Very festive!

    I have to worry about Bou's tail...he's so happy all the time that he gets too close and could level the tree with that enthusiasm. :)

  6. @map: HA! Thanks for that! You're crazy.

    Ponita, a Merry Christmas to you, too. Lovely tree. It's not the size that counts. (Wish I had a nickle every time I heard that.)

  7. Merry Christmas to you, love the wee tree.

  8. Map: ;-) xoxo

    Stinkypaw: So far so good! The tree still stands.

    Boxer: Sentimental value is everything, isn't it!

    XL: It's a cute little thing. :-)

    Hope: Zoë's tail is not a weapon, thankfully. But I know what you mean!

    LHB: Don't tell me it worked!!!! Do that again! Only this time say something more than 'test'. ;-)

    UB: Well, size doesn't count in everything... ;-)

    Sausage: Thanks! It's small but does the trick. Don't have room for a big tree in here.

    To All: Thank you for the Christmas Wishes. A very Merry Christmas to all of you!!!

  9. Yee Haw!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Please email Martin and tell him I love him and want to have his babies! Dumping the Firefox has actually worked! I can now comment - whether life just got better or worse for the world of blog remains to be seen!

    Arrived here late - now I'm going back - To Edmonton, in the interests of keeping sane, I've just gone mad!

    Love the tree top thingy, so much nicer than some tatty fairy struggling to maintain her balance!

    Yee-Haw -Hi Ho Silver and awaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!

  10. Perfect - especially with your mother's star.
    I hope mine will look so good. I have only got as far as lifting everything down to the top of the stairs - lots to do yet.
    The cards I still have - from friends and family no longer - here go up every year.

  11. Hot girl: Welcome... and thank you!

    LHB: Yeehaw is right! I will pass along to Martin that he has saved (or condemned) the world of blog because of his computer wizardry skills. ;-)

    Pat: No matter what it looks like, it is the sentiment and what it means to you that counts. Like all those cards you've kept.


So you have something to say about all this, do you?
Well, let's hear it, then!
