still, it's not the holidays without a tree (even a fakedy-fake one, as m21 loves), so nothing to do but dive in! the resulting process takes several days- rearranging furniture, hanging ornaments, getting bored with hanging ornaments, taking a break and watching some bad tv, then repeating all steps until tree and room look like sumpthin'- but in the end, once the tree of a thousand balls is up n' pretty, m21 is always happy he took the time, because it really feels like the holidays now! all we need now is lots and lots of presents wrapped in silver paper tied with white ribbon to complete the scene! (better get busy with that, m21!)
(thank goodness we've been storing the chippendale dining chairs for a client, since there was no room for any of our own chairs with the tree!)
what does YOUR tree look like? m21 would love to see! do you like fakedy-fake like maison21? or are you a traditionalist? email a us a picture,and maybe we'll do a post of reader's trees!
