Bought this awesome Tree 2 years ago (I think).  
This is the first time we have used it.  

It's been challenging to decorate as I ADORE Primitive Stuff, but just do not have the knack to do it well.  

Anyways, after attempting decorating with other ornies, this is the final result ~ so far!

I am using rusty, hand made grungy ornaments my German candles that I bought 40 years ago. 
 Never used them cause they do not stand upright ... always having to straighten them out and this annoys me to NO end. 

But here they are, perfect for a crooked primitive look. Sandy & I are enjoying it more and more each day.  Papa Chuck has not much of a comment...guess he tolerates me.

We just got our new 
7 1/2' slim lighted tree.  
It will be done before this weekend is over. 
Our other (and so very beautiful) tree simply does not fit this house. 
Next house (if I live that long) will be a wonderful Log home with a huge fireplace.
Have you noticed ... I am a dreamer. 


Thanks again for listening and watching,

Christmas Peace and Blessing to Everyone,

Papa Chuck, Barb and Auntie Sandy
Rusty too

I love it Barb. Never had candles on mine but really like the look. Your header photo tree is great too.

Thank you kindly... It was a chore as I changed it about 3 or 4 times (lost count). It is growing on us and it is still standing ... a good sign. Just added your Nana's coffee cake to my list of "things to do" It sounds scrumptious.
Peace to ALL,

Thanks so much Marly. You gave me the 'heads up' on "We Be Christmas". I LUV the tree and think I am getting those hit and miss type of inspirations for decorating it. Anyways it is what it is. My header photo was fun ... used clementines for the drieds. They are smaller to begin with and I too am very pleased.
Hoping and praying for you and your Sis.
Peace to you all,
