oh christmas tree

Last weekend we got our tree & decorations up, and the stump works perfectly. Q salvaged it from a huge piece of lumber at his parent’s house. We brought it home (it’s super heavy, by the way), and he drilled a hole in it and added a few coats of varnish. We set it on a piece of protective cardboard and then wrapped faux sheepskin rugs over top.

If the tree looks crooked in these photos – that’s just because it is. After putting it up, I also realized a 7 foot tree looks tiny in our living room! And I miss the smell of a big, real tree. So next year we might try a real one again, and put this one upstairs. I guess I’m becoming that lady who has multiple trees (and cats). Have a lovely weekend.
