Christmas trees have taken on such bold and colorful hues the past few years. Pine Green is just so outdated. Here are Blues, Reds, Lime Green. I was not able to get photos of the Pinks, Purple and Yellows, they were sold out!
The Cactus Tree was fun....
The Christmas Store here in Clearwater is open all year and has anything you might want or need to decorate your home. My sister and I went to shop there the other day and I was amazed at the isles and how they were depleted of merchandise. The tree room had signs on most trees, "This is the last one available". The Red Tree is really beautiful but I just can't see myself putting it in my living room.
Lime Green, well that was a bit much for me.
I remember when my children were young I could have used the White Upside Down tree. Just hang it from the ceiling to keep it safe from little hands and your pets.
I think Santa prefers the standard Green Christmas Tree because that is the one he stood by with his ladder. It was that tall, and the price tag was $898.
I just love Christmas trees and here in So. Florida most people do not buy real trees. The cut trees are trucked down from the North and most are cut so early that they have no pine smell at all. My neighbor gets a real tree each year and right after Christmas it's so dry that most needles fall off as she works at getting it out of the house. I'm afraid it is a fire hazard.
Let me share a photo with you, my one purchase in the Christmas Store... my new ornament!
"Born to Blog"
Don't you just love it!
Happy last week and a half of Christmas Shopping!

A bit of Holiday trivia
What popular children’s cracker was introduced in 1902 as a Christmas ornament?
(The Barmum’s Animal Cracker and box was introduced by the National Biscuit Company. The box, just as it does today, had a string attached to it so that it could be hung as a Christmas ornament).
