The wall tree

Years ago when my daughter was really little, we didn't have enough money to buy a real christmas tree that year for christmas and we didn't know what we were gonna do. So my inventive hubby went to the dollar store and bought some cheap garland.

I had no idea what he was gonna do with it, but as you can see...we had our christmas tree. I had a few ornaments and some lights that we also put on our wall tree and we were so proud of it, we showed it to everyone that year.

Ken (my hubby) even made the star that's on top of the tree. He cut it out of cardboard and painted it.

This is one of my favorite christmas tree's we've ever had.


  1. Mary, what a brilliant idea! It looks great.

  2. Sometimes I think that when we really have to scrape and work at creating joy we really make the best memories, that is beautiful. What a wonderful husband to be able to do that too. Oh and I am not a robot. Just in case you didn't know that.

  3. Thanks Shana. That robot Captcha happens to everyone..I had to turn it back on because of all the spam I get if I don't have it.

  4. That is wonderful. You will have to do it again one day :)

  5. Sharon, Thanks. One day we might just do that.

    I think that's terrific. It warms my heart, the lengths that the people who love us will go to so that they can put a smile on our faces. :-)
