Chatter and Chitter’s Christmas Trees

Chatter's Christmas Tree

Chitter's Christmas Tree


So many of you asked to see the girls’  Christmas trees that I decided to share a photo of each with you. The top photo is Chatter’s-Granny gave her the pink tree to use. The second photo shows Chitter’s Christmas tree-she used one of my small artificial green trees. Both trees are of the skinny slim sparse variety. I guess that’s supposed to make them look rustic and sort of old timey.

I hope your last Saturday before Christmas is a good one. We’ll be celebrating with the Pressley family. I know there’ll be love, laughter, music, and tasty food. I wish the same goodness for your day.

    Ed-thank you for the comments! Its a kick drum : ) And it does have a pillow stuffed inside it to dampen the sound a little.

    Had heart bypass surgery in November, so only used a couple of small trees. Much easier to put up, and still look good. Have a Merry Christmas!

    The trees are so sweet. When our Bro Tom was small, he always had a small tree of his own in the playroom.
    We don’t put up a tree because we have four new cats that we rescued (a mom and 3 kittens), and we don’t think they’d do well with the tree this year.
    Prayers for a safe weekend for everyone.
    God bless.

    I love the little trees. We still get a cedar from the woods so don’t get one til close to Christmas–probably Sunday afternoon.
    I hope you and your family have a wonderful happy and safe Christmas. I’m so glad Pap is up and around again–always love hearing about all your family and feel like I’m almost a family member. You give me so much happiness throughout the year. After the morning paper and my first cup of coffee, I always go to The Blind Pig. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!!!!

    Is that a headless bass drum I see? Looks like blankets or towels rolled up and placed inside. Tell me I’m not seeing what I’m seeing. What a novel idea if that is what is! If it’s not then it’s my idea!

    Chitter and Chatter’s little Christmas Trees are so nice. And as Chuck said, I love the Wire Spool cage Chatter uses for a Piano Bench.
    Jennifer (my youngest daughter) is on her way up here to get her Christmas Centerpiece I fixed for her out of Birch. I stopped on the way out of the holler and got her lots of pine with little pine cones on it to go around it. My whole Jeep smells nice, like Pine.
    Merry Christmas to everyone…Ken

    The girls did a great job and as they sleep through the night, may they have visions of the wonderment of childhood Christmases past. Thanks for sharing!

    The girls Christmas trees are so pretty….When I was their age I always had a tiny cedar or a branch of one in my bedroom too…I couldn’t put lights on it, but I put (flour flocked) snow on it and some homemade ornaments….I still love the smell of Cedar at Christmastime.
    Thanks Tipper,
    PS….Yes, this is the last Saturday before Christmas…and for some a Christmas shopping panic day….
    Stay safe….or just stay home and bake your cares away! ha
