I am Blessed to have a friend who is large and strong and kind, who is happy to help when called in exchange for a couple cups of coffee and conversation. I called him when I found “the Christmas tree,” you know the one, the one you have to have and for the right price. Yes, believe it or not, it was in this lot that I found my 11-foot beauty for $39.99!!
Of course, my friend tried to talk me into a smaller one, as he was the one that was going to have to lift into his truck and help me get up my stairs and into its stand.
When I first found it though I had seen the beginning of a bird’s nest inside its middle branches, and I was sure that was God's sign to me that this was my tree!! My friend did try to move the stack of sticks and twigs into a smaller tree, but I was already in love, so he gave in to the fact I wasn't going to look at any others and dutifully loaded into the back of his truck.
I know I am biased, but isn't it the most beautiful tree you've ever seen...I know, I know, you probably think you have the best tree. But you would have a difficult time convincing me of that! Now onto the lights!! Oh, my the house smells so wonderful.
How lucky am I that this the view from my desk?
I'll be back soon!! I have been such a busy elf, that I barely know what to share with you next! I have more decorating to do!!
Did you see it over there on the table? I swear my heart and eyes are full.
Many Blessings to you all!!
It is truly a beauty indeed! And....a nest within its branches is supposed to be considered a blessing for she who chooses it. We had that happen one year and the kids were beyond excited that their perfect tree had a nest! It was like a bonus gift!ReplyDelete
Merry Christmas, my friend. May the holidays be full of warmth, cheer, and lots of love!
Thank you so much, Kathe!! I know, I was so disappointed that none of the nieces or nephews were with me to see it!! But, I was pleased as pie!!I pray all the same for you and your kids!!Delete

Many Blessings to you and yours,
It is perfect. I totally relate on this issue. I do 3 trees each year. 2 artificial and 1 real. The real one is for my hubby who must have that real perfect huge tree each year. It's gonna be hard to tell him this year that you found it first!!! Glad I stopped in, happy decorating. Love PattyReplyDelete

How I wish I could have a real tree, but I'm allergic to all spruce trees. I've been taking shots for 3 years weekly and maybe someday I'll be able to tolerate it. Yours truly looks magnificent in your home! Glad you have a friend to do the heavy work.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Ann. I'm so sorry to hear you can't have one of your own,there are some beautiful artificial ones out there, though, theses days. Thank you for your Kind words and yes, I am very Lucky!Delete
Hugs and Blessings,
Hi, I found your blog via Debbie's Pinterest party and have pinned your post to Pinterest! I'm now following you too!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for the Follow, Ocean!! Welcome aboard my crazy, thrifty, sometime silly life!!Delete
Hi! I am visiting from the I Gotta Try That Link Party! Your tree is gorgeous! Aren't live trees the best? :) I just finished decorating mine last night! Have a very Merry Christmas!ReplyDelete
Thanks Shelley!! Yes, I agree, wholeheartedly, Live trees are the Best!!Delete
This tree is beautiful! My husband was not very happy with me when I bought a fake tree. So we got a real tree and put it in our bedroom. Thanks for sharing at "I Gotta Try That" Have a great week!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Marcie!! If I had the room to put another one in my bedroom I'd do that too!!! I just lover the look and smell, nothing quire like it any other time of the year!Delete
That is such a perfectly shaped tree! Love the photo of the roses on the table by it. :)ReplyDelete
Thank you, Laurie! That means the world to me, coming from you. I am a huge fan of your Blog and images.. So Beautiful!!Delete
Gorgeous tree! I cannot wait until we have room for a tall tree again. In my parents house they had vaulted ceilings and a lot of space, so growing up we had really big trees. Now my husband and I are in a tiny apartment, so we only have room for a 5 foot tree. It's still awesome, but I really love giant trees. :-) And you have such a great friend to help you get the tree home and set up! Thanks for linking this up to the Winter Wonders & Holiday Happenings link party! I'm glad you did, and thanks for stopping by!ReplyDelete
What a great share from you! Thanks, Jessi! Not just for the comment, but for the reminder of how Blessed I am. I rent, too. This is only the 2nd home I've had where I didn't have to have a "table-top" size tree. So, I know exactly how you feel. It sure does feel more 'Christmassy' with the beautiful large tree! And yes, I am lucky to have such a great friend! Thanks for coming by!Delete
Blessings to you and yours,
Hope you have a great holiday!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much!! Merry Christmas to you, too!!Delete
Theresa, your tree is really beautiful. Everyone needs such a good friend (with a truck!).ReplyDelete
