I finally got all the Shiny Brite ornaments off the tree and packed away. I am slow. I had to get the ornaments off the tree before they got dusty.
Now the shorter tree stands there all naked waiting to be put in the bag and stuffed in the compartment under one of the twin beds. I left that for another day…wouldn’t want to be an over achiever.
Kinda sad…but it was up for six weeks…plenty of time to enjoy it.
Adam was the only grand that noticed the new tree…he came downstairs at Christmas time and said “Where is the big tree ? That one is so little.” I explained that it was too tall…certainly nothing that he can identify with.
Since I sold the old too tall tree I now have room for all of the Shiny Brites inside the tree coffin….which should probably be called a Shiny Brite coffin now. I actually feel kind of organized and it will be nice not to go on a scavenger hunt looking for boxes of ornaments tucked away here and there and notes in the tree coffin to the whereabouts of all the Shiny Brites…they are all in one spot now.
This is a ornament that Chance gave me one year. It is painted yellow on the inside and has red stenciled skaters and snowflakes on the outside. It is a one of a kind…since I only have one of them.
You probably don’t want to know how many hours I can waste looking at Shiny Brites on the net…between etsy and Ebay. I find it educational and relaxing.
