Last year I decided it was time to say goodbye to the old fake Christmas Tree! This year we have a white fir and I love it! I like a lot of space between the branches.
I removed the antique lace tablecloths I had hanging in the window so the tree would show up better and guess what? The lace was dry rotted from the sun and fell apart so now I guess we will be cutting those up for tea cozies.
I am always willing to take a risk and do something knowing in the long run you might loose something. I wear my Victorian Costume jewelry knowing occasionally I loose a piece. I would still rather enjoy something than pack it up!
