Tinsel and tat

It was about time we put up a tree. After all, it seems like everyone else has - we even have one in our office. It is beautiful, but then considering that it was organised and decorated by our Style Director I would expect nothing less.

My effort is far more modest. Oh yes indeed. Will you think less of me when I reveal that I paid $9.95 for mine at the Go-Lo bargain store? Possibly, but that's a burden I'll just have to carry. Last year we went all out and bought a beautiful little pine tree, with a view to keeping our living Xmas tree for many, many years. But after Christmas promptly forgot that you should, like, water it.

It didn't make it to February.

So plastic it is.

It took all of 2 minutes to construct (though I suspect we will be breathing in the VOCs for at least another two Christmases). My favourite bit of the tree is the paper star at the top, proudly painted by E himself.

Who knew Santa's helpers were so cheeky?

How gorgeous. Tree and Son. Forget the Style Director, you are a true Recessionista with the $9.95 tree.
