7 garland twigged out Christmas tree in a crate

read

Remember the game Ker Plunk? Where you had this long tall tube loaded with sticks stuck in every which way, taking turns removing one stick at a time until the balls dropped? My tree is that game this year. And thank goodness it’s so twigged out my cats won’t touch it! 🙂 I know I’m […]

Landing the perfect walking tree at Woodsong Christmas Trees

read

No need to fret this year Facebookers, we ended up landing the perfect walking tree at Woodsong Christmas Trees! It was pretty funny.

NEW Whoville tree with a WhoDroop feature

read

 Remember my Christmas tree? Yes. The Whoville Junk Memory tree to be exact. Bad news. It didn’t make it.  It was one of those fluky things. I went back to the tree place and inquired why it dried out so fast wondering what on earth I did wrong, and they didn’t hesitate. They wanted to […]
