Oh Christmas Tree.. Where is your new star?

This place is a disaster. I have empty and unruly Christmas storage boxes strewn about the halls, rooms,and  staircase since I pulled the six rather large green and red bins from storage two weeks ago. I have not had the time to return the boxes stuff to my rental box so they remain scattered about the house. {not for long} The annual tree decorating occurred last Sunday and my Frazier Fir beauty is still awaiting it’s newly purchased electric star tree topper {had a golden tinsel one as a kid that was all the rage in our household}. The skirt went off to the dry cleaners and spread out wrinkle-free around my red painted iron ‘old school’ base. Here is my slo-mo decorating process. Fully dressed Fir to come. Fa la la la.

Step One. Take off the twine and hope those branches look good when it opens up!

Step One. Plop that baby into it's base and fill with water. Pronto!

Step Two. Make sure they thing is straight - any bricks, books, and paint stirrers will do. Whew.

Step Three. Off comes the twine and out comes the "Please stay up straight".

Step Four. Make sure that baby drinks well and full. This is a great way to fill it without squatting down or laying under the floor.

Step Five: Load her up with shiney balls, crystal garland, and treasures from childhood and years past. And try not to break one. =0)

Step 6. Step back and enjoy the beauty of the holiday. Still waiting for my new star. This crystal Pottery Barn is beautiful but needs a tarnish removing..
