Post holiday waking up – holiday movie time

Snuggling with cats, candles and fireplace ablaze, sipping tea or a glass of Prosecco and watching all movies we own with holiday themes.

Our Christmas Tree

IMG_8695

Spence and I have a very cozy home but add even a small conventional Christmas tree, then a big pile of wrapped gifts and we had a bit of an obstacle course.

Several years ago I found this half tree that mounts on the wall and bought it.  It clearly can handle alot of ornaments and looks very festive.

This year we bought one for my youngest stepson and his kids when we found out how much he liked ours – and was facing the same space constraint issues. It arrived on Friday and the decorating began. We’re hopeful they will enjoy their tree for years to come.

If interested, you can find this tree at solutions.blair.com and search for: “Prelit Wall Tree (5 ft).”
