Do you remember our first real tree three years ago? Well, we drove back to that tree farm to find a similar tree, not so much for it's appearance, but for it's memorable fragrance. I know, I'm weird, but the house smelled amazing that Christmas Season, and so we were on a mission to find one just like it.
Thankfully, this year they didn't paint any of the trees, it was pleasant to see the trees in their natural state, and we searched. They did not have any of the Blue Cypress Pine that we wanted. The Blue Cypress they had were still too premature and the trees they did have do not hold ornaments well. After searching almost the entire farm, we decided to look somewhere else. It was fun as we hunted for our perfect tree. We looked high and low and it was getting dark.
Finally we dropped by our local hardware store; and that is where we found our tree. Mr. M was not impressed, but we managed to find one we liked and it is filled with fragrance. Unfortunately, my new garland was not long enough, and I was not able to use it for this tree, I knew I should have purchased two from LMM. While placing the ornaments on the tree, my son told me to add more. I originally planned for silver, white and gold...
But I finished with all the colors I had in the box. I have not decorated with lots of colors before, nor with so many ornaments, so this was different for me and I'm still getting used to it. So there you have it, our Christmas tree. I am using last years handmade ornaments for a different purpose this year, which I'll post later on. I have not made much effort this year in decorating my home, my focus has been on preparing my heart to receive Him this Christmas, so Christmas home decor is a process right now. Thank you for visiting today!
