The following are pictures from our whimsical tree at the rear of the shop. It has many of the same ornaments as half of the tree in the front window—actually, most of them.
But it’s the first tree in about 25 years that has me thinking “multi-colored lights! Take a look:
The following are of a trio of Christmas finials by Penny McAllister.
A helpful guy brings the tree!
Too bad he can’t be enlisted to shovel the real thing!
A great nightlight with a bubble candle on top!
Wine gift bags and totes in a variety of delightful colors. They are monogram-able, too!
Okay—so for the BIG question . . . Would this tree have looked better with multi-colors lights?
Do you use multi-colored lights in your Christmas décor or are you in the “clear lights camp.” I’ve always used clear lights, but I love to see a house lit-up with multi-colored lights. I bought some vintage multi-colored lights at the flea market this weekend. I have to say, though, I love the hues of the vintage lights! Does anyone know if you can find those hues in new bulbs? If so, who makes them?
Fortunately, my husband agrees with my clear lights rule, but my friend and her husband disagree on the use of colored lights on their family tree. They’ve reached a compromise—of sorts. Do you have the same issue in your house? How have you resolved your dilemma?
I’d love to hear from you . . .
Thanks for your indulgence!
