Christmas is Near
This has been one rollercoaster of a year and I swear that while time moved at a snail’s pace earlier this year, I feel like it’s just sped up since, because I can’t believe it’s December! Decorating took a little longer than previous years because we acquired another vintage aluminum Christmas tree, a blue one, so things had the shuffle about, including moving furniture and lamps. Yes, I’m that crazy about Christmas! If you’re new to the blog, then you’ll also spy I’m simply in love with not only aluminum trees, but also these bizarre little stuffed reindeer that you’ll see scattered everywhere.
A blue aluminum tree has been on my wish list since I first knew of their existence, and we were lucky enough to score one on Ebay earlier this year. We also added another holy grail item, the rotating Christmas tree stand and color wheel all-in-one by Evergleam, as seen in action above. And, no, we really don’t actually have that many presents to hand out to friends and family, they are all part of my system of cat-proofing of our trees, which you can read about in this post.
When it comes to actual holiday of Christmas this year, it will be different for sure. While Patrick and I don’t travel for the holidays normally, our newer tradition of going to Disneyland Christmas Day won’t be happening due to the pandemic. So I think it will just be a day at home watching Christmas movies and calling our families. Which is of course the safest and most responsible thing we can be doing.
Are you all decorated for the holidays?

Your Christmas decorations are always the highlight of my year. You’ve done a fantastic job.
Did you PAUSE your television or “Lie in wait”?
Wow! Lots of neat vintage decorations. Love all of the aluminum Christmas trees! Wishing you and Patrick a healthy and happy holiday.
Brings back happy memories. I so wanted an aluminum tree but my
Mother insisted those were not right. We had a lovely real tree but I did so admire by best friends’ trees with the color changing disc.
Your story reminds me of one my friend’s mother told me. She loved flocked trees, but her mother told her “Only sluts have flocked trees.” I cracked up! From that point on I have called flocked trees “slut trees.” I want to know what made her mother think that!
Absolutely love that rotating base color wheel combo!
Your place looks amazing!
As they say, the days creep by, but the years fly by. Have a wonderfully, happy holiday!
Goodness, are you right! So often the individual days felt brief, but the collective weeks and months now seem long at times, and faster than the speed of light at others. When all is said and done, this is going to be one of those years that feels a great deal more like ten or twenty.
Your festive decor is off-the-charts fantastic!
Happiest holiday wishes, my dear friend!
