Re: 12 Days of Christmas: Decoration Ideas!

I prefer my Christmas trees a bit "dog eared" rather than puffy! The ones my family had when I was growing up were like that so I guess I got used to them. Smiley Very Happy

Ah but @Marjo I expect you had a real Christmas tree when you were growing up?

I don't have any decorations up yet but earlier I was reading about a 90 year old artificial tree that was recently found in a garage!

Yes, a dog-eared and often lopsided, real tree! It always smelled very nice. Smiley Happy And the cat loved to climb it until it fell over. After a few times we learned that it's best to tie the tree with a string to the curtain rail...

Re: 12 Days of Christmas: Decoration Ideas!

Oh well there is every excuse for real trees to come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. I have always thought whilst they look lovely when properly decorated, they aren't for me.

I constantly fiddle around with my artificial trees to get them all symmetrical. When my boys were younger and 'helped me decorate' I couldn't wait till they went to bed so I could change stuff and tidy up their efforts

Bad Mummy...(or maybe a touch of OCD? ) LOL

Has anyone ever found a real no-needle-drop tree that doesn't drop needles if you so much as breath in the same room?

No never. When we had dogs we took them to a friends house at Christmas. One got two pine needles stook in his paw. Removed one...didn't know about the other till he starting limping and then found he had an infected pad Evil

Aww poor dog! Smiley Sad I remember when my cat got a pine needle stuck to her eyes a few times. Obviously it was a struggle trying to get them off as she was so scared and kept lashing out and clawing at me! Smiley Surprised
