I(t) made it.
Since last Christmas, I’ve kept my Charlie Brown Christmas tree out (in my bedroom) all year. When shopping for gifts at Sur La Table earlier this month, I found the rest of the ornaments it needed, including a Buche de Noel.
This year’s tree:
To borrow a question from my husband, How many
pair of black pants pair of boots purses Eiffel Towers does a person need?
Answer: Beaucoup. For this tree: five, to be exact – though one was a gift from a friend.
Our (real) tree is still up, and it will be for a few more days. It’s nine feet tall and loaded down with ornaments that we’ve collected over the years. Perhaps next year, the ornaments pictured above will go on it – but it’s too early to know that now.
When it comes time to pack up the Christmas decorations, I’m not going to want to store this little tree away in the storage room. So it just might have to stay out for an encore (but not on the dining room table).
Since I like to keep a little bit of Christmas out all year.
