One of several Christmas Tree Stash spots - Storage room, Pinehurst

Technically, I should probably be the one
giving away a tree that doesn't fit anymore
I got the tree
which, yes, has to be stashed in three different places
what?? why are you looking at me like that?
I got it on the roadside
from a house that was pretty big
from a posting that said something like
"moved into new place, tree is to big for our space"
I have lots of space. (LOTS!)
and I have a need for 3 trees
One is always live (Preferably from Ikea)
One is always live (preferably, chopped from a tree farm)
One is always fake (preferably, a tall skinny)
But, see. This year, we put the doggy door
in the wall for my old downstairs spot
And the doggy that goes through that door
She has a liking for trees (the real ones, and the ornaments)
so I had to move the stair landing tree
to the guest room
Where we could never see it
So I moved the above tree, to my bedroom
Which was actually really fun
But also, obnoxiously big
It pretty much filled up the sitting area
Which is the size of a small child's room to begin with
Lesson of the day - beyond being too tall for a space
trees can also be too wide for a space.
Hmph. Who would have thought it?
I DID finally get this tree up.
And it was gorgeous all aglow at night.
