I have always had a real evergreen tree, usually one I grew myself, but after several cat-related disasters that involved breaking quite a few of my old ornaments, I thought I'd try something different. Thinking that maybe it was the scent of fresh pine that was too much temptation for Rosie, I thought I'd try deciduous. So I decorated three deciduous "trees," all up off the floor at least a bit from cat height.
I've already removed balls from the lower branches, but now she is studying just how to attack the higher ones.
This one is in the kitchen and I call it the acorn tree. It has one very special non-acorn ornament on it, which you will see in the next photo.
It's a Santa made from a milkweed pod! It was sent to me by a blogger friend, Far Side, and I love it. She made 67 of these for family and friends.
I love to decorate for Christmas, mostly with old things and things from outdoors. This is the first Christmas of my retirement, the first time I've had time to do much decorating in years. It's been so much fun!
Thanks for reading my blog.
