Advent Day 14

The tree is up!!  

Don't let the advent day 14 fool you into thinking I had by tree up early.  I don't know what I was thinking by putting myself up to this challenge during this busy time of year.  I've been crazily trying to get everyones orders done and getting my own orders completed to not even have time to think about adding more photos so today (18th) I am back dating to make it look good.   :)

John and I were out in the garage setting it in the stand and my throat is already itching and I'm rubbing my face and he says........ "you're already allergic, why don't we buy a fake tree"?

Because I can't..... as I sit here tonight itching my throat, sneezing, red face, runny nose..... maybe fake is the way to go for us.

It gets better the longer it's in here but then when it starts to dry out it starts all over again.  I have about 5-7 days of no allergies with it and we've figured out how to make them land on Christmas.

I have a pretty plain tree but I like it like that.  White and silver ornaments, red and copper bulbs, white lights and dried hydrangeas.  Some year I'll buy new ornaments and change it up but for now it looks like my style.

No flash just the lights of the tree.  The inside of the tree just glows with the led bulbs.  The dark edges are from the branches closer to the lens that are not in focus and lit up by the lights.

led office lighting would be ideal since you would possibly be plugging in lights in the same household where various electronics and appliances are used. Traditional lights often have a hazard of causing blackouts.
