blue and silver tree

Well, DH brought the tree down from the attic for the downstairs bedroom. This is what it looked like last year.

Not bad, huh?

The tree was old when I first painted it silver in 2008. Painting it rejuvenated it. I got a lot of compliments on how pretty that old tree was. But the years have taken a toll. Many of the plastic parts that hold the branches were broken. And some of the branches had to be twisted together to make the tree hold together. Couldn’t tell that though, could you?

But when DH brought the tree down yesterday, it was a jumbled mess. Here’s what it looked like while DH tried to fix the branches…he’s down there on the lower left.

Too many of the branches had fallen out. Those pesky plastic pieces… And the needles were shedding. So I pulled all the beads, lights and branches off the tree. I can use the branches for decorating. We opted to get a new tree this year. It should be here on Monday. And yes, we do store the tree with the beads and lights on it. Having a very large attic is an asset when you have a lot of Christmas to store.

I’m trying to decide which tree we should bring down next…
