Slowly but surely we are getting the Shiny Brite tree up.
The Shiny Brite tree is assembled. The top is decorated and then lifted onto the bottom section because a person could kill herself going up and down a ladder and break more ornaments than she could hang.
The Shiny Brite Tree Topper, Far Guy bought it for me a number of years ago. It is always the first thing I put on the tree….the beginning.
The beds and the couch and every other available space is used for the staging area. Each box has a sticky note. I like them to go back into their own assigned boxes. It is an OCD thing.
The four boxes and the small group on the bottom right are the new old ornaments this year.
Here is another bed full. Good thing no one is coming to visit.
I won’t show the couch or my work table or any other area for fear you will call me a ornament hoarder.
The top has been decorated. We have a system and it was lifted successfully onto the bottom part yesterday.
The bottom part takes a number of days to decorate.
This is the box of New Retro Shiny Brites that we added to the collection this year.
I have six boxes of retros now one for each of my grands and a spare just incase some are broken. Well you never know.
I walked around looking at other shorter fake trees the other day…ones that the elderly can easily put up. I am considering a smaller shorter tree….no big decisions have been made yet. I had a brilliant thought that if the tree was smaller I could decorate all in red one year…blue the next…silver…gold…pink...
