    I'm thinking I could accept the artificial tree, if it smelled like a real tree. I may go looking for some tree spray!

    We had artificial trees all throughout my childhood. I swore that when I got to make the decisions, it would be a real tree, and that's what I've had since I got all growed up. And when it's time to take the tree down, it goes into the woods to decompose naturally.

    Better Homes brand candles (Walmart) have one that smells just like a Xmas tree.

    Why not take it one step further and get a balled tree so it can be replanted? Granted, this isn't an option for everone.

    Not bling (and also not from this year) but I decided to try some personalized holiday cards this year and this picture is on the front:

    I like the b&w. Saw some really pretty pale blue and pale orchid poinsettias at Lowes and your photo reminds me of them. I had never seen them in other than white or red before.
    I'm jealous that you have your cards done. I am so far behind this year that I have not even taken our card photo yet! Been swamped at work and have house guests here since last weekend so no time for anything since we put the tree up. House is still only half decorated, lawn ornaments are all tipped over from the storm on Tuesday...

    Not my tree but the tree at a fancy house in the neighborhood. The owners serve homemade funnel cake and cider every night through November and December.

    They also have this one in their house as well. For some reason it reminds me of Christmas Town from The Nightmare Before Christmas.

    Well, that and every vision I had of my family's Christmas tree as a kid. Chopping one down and decorating it was a tradition.
