I’m off to the woods to find a dead tree to add yet one more Christmas tree to my decor. As of this moment I have five trees in my home – all of the artificial variety – I think they are called pencil posts because they are tall and skinny, just like I would like to be.
Two of my friends have come up with the most delightful trees. Above Cynthia lost a shrub this year, but she thought it had such a lovely shape that she saved it and decorated it for Christmas. It is beautiful!
My friend Norma discovered this trick several years ago. She sent her husband Bubba out into the woods to hunt – for a dead tree that is. He came home with the huge deceased skeleton you see below. Within minutes Norma had transformed it into a work of art.
It was perfect in her rustic country home (unfortunately my photo doesn’t do it justice – it’s a picture of a picture, but you get the idea.). I don’t think she did it this year, probably because Bubba was out hunting animals rather than dead trees.
