Christmas trees

So we have two Christmas trees. This first one we saved out of a barn that was about to be demolished. The property belonged to a woman for many decades, and she was being forced out by expansion of the road. We were taking the siding off the barn before it became landfill, and she said we could have whatever we wanted inside. So we took some farm tools, water crocks, etc., but we found a green plastic sack with this tree in it. It is quite funky. Tom was strongly stating that this should be our only tree this year, but I guess I am a traditionalist and want a real tree.
So we did in fact bring the top of the spruce tree that fell on our house inside our house as our Christmas tree this year. It is funky in its own right, but personally I think it makes a good tree. Plus maybe it gets rid of a little of the bad juju this tree gave us last month. What do you think?

    The word on the grapevine is that you won one of those cool chicken boxes – what fun! T.

    I agree, get rid of the bad juju. Make the tree serve a purpose.

    Hmmm,
    it looks to me the way many Christmas trees USED to look, before we all adopted a perfect-tree shape– usually in plastic.
    Cheers!

    Tina, I actually “wo” two- one from the contest and one from my step-dad!

    Al (“step-dad” hopefully the juju is gone now- I think so anyway, especially after the rest of the tree is now firewood!

    Gail,
    I think it’s is gorgeous, Tom’s warming up to it too I think, especially after the initial hard work is done. It’s not perfect but it’ll do.
