New Pine Tree...

    This is my new little wonky tree. I just love it. It's not real..It's fake with little pine cones on it too.  Love the inserted burlap cloth .
  I got it at the Christmas Market last Saturday. It's in an old pipe tobacco tin.  A man that used to be my neighbor, made a bunch of these for his wife to sell. I loved the old can and the tree is perfect on the porch table.
  I have a wool scarf and an old pair of ice skates against those shutters I bought last year. That is my general display back ground. I also have hung a cardinal ornament with them.  I won't leave this tree out all winter though.
  Today is bingo at the senior center. I am picking up my sister Jeanie.  The others can not go today. It's a just s fun way to spend Friday mornings...till the weather gets so bad that I won't even want to drive into town.
  Wishing all of you wonderful people a great day. Please let's remember those that need prayer or good thoughts. XO

    1. Vee, I never thought that a person could use a real little pine for decorating. I think we should keep every cute can we ever see. LOL. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

    1. Linda, Those sad little trees need love too. :):) I got the skates at a yard sale. I wish I had an old sled to decorate. I might see if Ted could make a fake one for displays. Blessings for a great weekend, love you, Susie

    1. Gert, I did go bingo with my sister. They play bingo till everyone wins something and then do a cover all for a nice gift. No money involved. I have even donated gifts for the bingo. Yes, our weather has been the best...except for fog in the mornings. We are in for rain the next few days...still better than snow. Blessings and prayers for You and Tom. Love, Susie

  15. aahh, that little pine tree is cute, Susie. It looks so real! And the ice skates caught my eye. I have only gone ice skating a couple times and it was fun, but I'm better at roller skating. The blades on ice skates are too thin, and it's easier to keep my balance on roller skates hehehe.

    love, ~Sheri

    1. Sheri, I have only skated twice myself. I got these skates at a yard sale. :) I bought another of those little trees. It was in a sifter with a red knob on the handle and I put a red bow on it too. Blessings, love, Susie
