I had romantic notions of Christmas tree's this year. I was going to pick the tree that nobody wanted. The sad little tree that caught nobody's eye. This is quite unlike me, as I'm usually a tree perfectionist. I like the tall and skinny type, with strong branches, and lots of room between the layers to hang ornaments (like the one I had last year).
I faltered, on the walk to the tree place, and decided that actually, I did want a nice tree. Nobody wants those ones for a reason right?! As it turns out, it was Hobson's choice anyway. There was only one tree left...
And so I named him Stumpy, and he became mine.
I wasn't too sure about stumpy when me and the bestie carried him home. Nor when he was standing there, a little naked, in my house. But after watching Christmas movies (Elf and The Family Stone) to get us in the mood, decorating him to within an inch of his life, and drinking a considerable amount of wine, I think I might be persuaded. Wonky star and all.

Luna and Beaks have already taken half the lower ornaments and scattered them around the house. But when they look like this, I can't help but forgive them :-)
The quilt we're all snuggling under is my Christmas Strip Twist, from last year. I love it, but its a little small for me + the best friend + 2 cats. I might make a new one ready for next year!
