Hello, again. Our second tree is in the computer room. This one has colored lights. I know a lot of people think that colored lights are tacky, but I really don’t understand that way of thinking. How can color be tacky?
To me, color is very festive, and almost carnival-like. It’s beautiful. And, I know those who are decorating their trees with Deco Mesh, wouldn’t dare think my tree, with colored lights and tinsel garland, was tacky. Cough. Ahem…
I bought this tree last year and didn’t think it was as sparse as it is. I had purchased ribbon, and picks for it and when I went to decorate it wasn’t looking great. Not to mention the fact that my husband wanted blinking lights.
I must have changed the tree around a dozen times last year, trying to get everything to work, but I didn’t like it. This year I accepted the fact that it was sparse and all the fancy extras weren’t going to work. We bought new lights and I bought some simple tinsel garland to wrap around the tree. I love it. Liesl loves it too!
So, that’s tree number two. I hope you all are enjoying the season! I’ll be back with a Christmas Home Tour soon!
