oh christmas trees

here's the room before sparkling commenced

 

I have always wanted an aluminum fountain tree. The budget was small this year, but I ended up finding two good deals on old aluminum trees this year. one 6' Peco (the spindly one up front - found on eBay along with the color wheel) and a sweet little Evergleam (so full and sparkly - found in a local antique shop) in the background.

 

Just this morning, my tree-turner arrived and now the big one is making me dizzy while I type this!

 

I figure glittery spinning trees make perfect sense in this rather down-feeling time of "crisis". No one will notice there aren't any presents under them if they are sparkly and distracting.

 

My solution to not being able to afford enough vintage ornaments to fill them both: origami paper diamonds and topper.
