    I did not think it would arrive until after Christmas. Glad your day was brightened. Sure does improve the look of that bland tree you had.

    I was surprised to get it and yes, the tree looks much nicer when it's decorated with ornaments from friends. Thank you, Clark. I love it.

    I think of it as keeping the local tree farmers in business. I only buy from local farms...and this year during a blizzard.

    I guess I fall into that category as well...only 1 Christmas in 24 with an artificial. I prefer to think of myself as more of a cereal killer though :rolleyes:

    Hey, hey, hey! I'm not a tree killer! Here's ours -- freaks a lot of people out. The rings are white plexiglass with holes drilled inside and outside for ornaments. It closes up to fit in a garbage bag, completely flat. All the chains go up into a bullet-shaped wooden thing my DH turned which swivels. I really enjoy seeing all the other trees and decorations you guys have done. Beautiful stuff!

    Those are some of the coolest ornaments, Lynne. I'm really into ornaments like that. Have you been collecting a long time? The large white one on the bottom just to the right of center is especially lovely.

    Thanks Ann I do collect! Those are mostly Jay Strongwater.
    I also collect Patricia Breen. I've been collecting for just a few years.

    Lynne, that is so beautiful! I really like the two butterfly ones! I bet you keep your cats far, far away from your tree:poke::D
