Gilded





Our tree is one of my favorite parts of Christmas. We wrap it with an inordinate amount of lights and use every ornament we have, so it glistens like a triangular jewel, dripping with color and shimmer.
My mother in law wraps the trunk of her tree with white lights and then the outside branches with colored lights and puts tinsel (stringy silver stuff) on it and her tree looks positively magical!

Colored lights, white lights, or both for you?

Colored, always colored lights!

Both! And we are probably a fire hazard in progress because the colored lights I use are actually tinsel lights from the late 1960s that my family had...I love them so much I can't stop using them. Oh! Plus we use bubble lights. It's a crazy, hodge podge tree, but I love it.

our tree is one of the fiber optic ones that changes colors constantly. It looks purdy in the dark. I like the pics you took. very artsy.
