This tree smelled good in my Highlander when we brought it home but once we got it home, we couldn't smell a thing, so much for the pine smell because there isnt' one. We did however get sap all over our hands and pine needles every where!!! So as soon as Xmas is over I will be in line for the after holiday sales and buy a discounted fake tree for next year.
The tree is small and cute plus we only paid $20, gotta love Walmart. This year I did not drag out my usual ornmaments that I've had since forever, instead I used new ornaments that I bought last year after xmas on clearance. They are kind of funky but fun. I never do a theme tree, thats my Sisters style and my Mom used to do the best theme trees!!! I am missing my Mom like crazy this time of year. Especially when I'm Christmas shopping. Mom was always a little cranky this time of year but she loved Christmas and all the decorating much more than I do. So this year I am trying to be more in the spirit for her.
Ok - Here it is......don't mind the fact that we have it sitting on a cooler
I wanted it to be taller. Isn't it cute.....
Just about done decorating...
Finished Product....what do you think? Pretty funky huh.

My Special Village
My Mom collected the Department 56 Village for years and has a huge collection that my Sister now has. I picked out two of my favorite pieces (The Candy Stores) and my Mom's BFF Debbie made this for me.
