I assure you I can deeply appreciate the talent's of people like Crazy Mike and Tink.Their trees are some of the most elegant I have ever seen.My horizons are quite expansive my preferences sadly like my mind are quite narrow. :elf1::elf1::elf1:
I probably have the most ghetto tree around! Our mix of ornaments vary from ones I made as a kid, to Hallmark ornaments, to cheap plastic balls, to candy canes. I use all sizes of multi lights. Our tree would never win any awards, but we're proud of it, and we all love it!!
I'm not a competetive person. My tree only has to meet my standards. Christmas is the time to be happy and to show our love and kindness. If we're around grumpy people, we don't have to behave like they do. So if you have a tree, decorate it the way you like it, and if you don't have a tree, well...celebrate without one. The first year we were married we had a honeycomb paper tree and no ornaments.
We have Balsam Hill Christmas trees since last year and I don't have any plan of buying new tree since the economy is really bad these days. Anyway, no one can tell if the tree is already one year old since it was kept in the stock room and it still looks great. anyway, for the color combinations of the christmas balls, i prefer the gold, silver, green and red.
That's a solid color combination.
