What a Sap

I had to get a real tree.
So what you say?
I purchased my first fake tree 
a week ago. 

It's a great tree as far as fake gos,
but I felt detached.
I was missing the smell of the pine.
I could have bought those little sticks
that smell like pine.  But then I would have a fake
pine smell on a fake pine tree.

I tried to get in the mood, and so did my little ghostie.
My grandson was having more fun with the
curtains than with visions of sugar plums,

not that he'd know what a sugared plum was...

The whole purpose of a fake tree is to save money, right?
Yeah, I'm a sap,
missing my real tree.
 Just had to get one.

 Be well!

I would love to have a real tree. It's not the cost as I have a sister & brother-in-law who own a Christmas tree farm and could get a good deal on one. I can't have a real tree because I'm allergic to them. I have small arrangements with cuttings of pine and fir and have to be content with that. Your tree is beautiful! Happy holiday Lisa. XOxoX

I miss the smell of a real Christmas tree but *sigh* we do put up a fake one, have for the last 5 or 6 years . . . . yours is beautifully decorated and I love the ghostie, LOL

I love having a real tree. I love to mist it and smell the pine. We have a combo of a real tree, and a couple of little fakes ones, too. :) xox!

We don't get to decorate at all this year--so I will come visit your real tree and enjoy the season vicariously. :~)

I love the scent of fresh pine, as well. Enjoy your real tree!!!
