Our First Christmas Tree

Thursday, December 08, 2011



Weston and I picked up our first Christmas tree on Sunday night at a sidewalk tree shop here in Fort Greene. It cost a whopping $50 (including the stand), but I have to say it's the happiest $50 has made me in recent memory. We had a few ornaments and I'd picked up a bunch of vintage glass ornaments last year at a thrift store, so we had plenty of things to fill the tree. A few bows added a touch of red and a larger bow was our substitute for a star. Here's Weston below carrying our tree home.

I just came across your blog while looking for outdoor living posts. I love your little sketch in your header and I have to agree with your post. City trees always seam to be a bit more expensive but they always make me so extremely happy. Enjoy your tree!

The tree looks great; I'll send a few "baby" ornaments along soon.

Thanks Kaite! And Mom, please do! I would love some of my family ornaments.
