Christmas Trees and the Single Gal

I like a tree that grew in the woods. I like the smell. But what a lot of work and expense for one person!

True, I could own and assemble annually an artificial Christmas , but I've never liked them. The only artificial trees that interest me are really artificial, impossible to mistake for something that grew.

My friend Diane sent me a link to some ideas. I like a lot of the little tabletop trees, but I wanted something bigger. Here's what I did:

Then I set out into the cold for lettuce at the food co-op. As I walked along, I passed the home and garden of some wonderfully creative folks at a nearby cul-de-sac. This is what they did with their bean tipis. I'm thinking I'd like to build one of these next summer and keep it as my annual Christmas tree.


In the meantime, I'm enjoying my tree of lights.

Love your window tree! How did you fasten the corners of the tree to the window pane?

I used those suck-on things with hooks. Glad you like it!
