    Yes, I meant none of that fake grass at Easter time, either. Sorry for the confusion.

    I've seen some trees that are beautifully done using one strand of tinsel per decoration. They are the exception.

    Like Dorothy, we use an artificial tree and there is no way I'm picking all that stuff off! Plus, I don't really care for it and Herself loathes the stuff.

    We always have a real tree so we have to have a little bit of tinsel on the tree to hide the wires of the lights.









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    Our tree is pre-lit so mum can perfectly decorate it with organza ribbon and boring baubles. We don't even have a disney ornament on it!

    I do like to use dried baby's breath on the tree to add some dimension and texture. I've been known to use flocked baby's breath when I can find it. That makes a mess in its own right. :sigh;

    I've used gold and silver bead strings, cut in smaller pieces, like tinsel (in that one short strand was hung on one part of a branch, etc.). It works in much the same manner but it easier (and cleaner) to put on and take off.

    Love icicles--as tinsel is properly named! I like silver only, as it goes with my silver garland, ca. 1945. My parents bought the garland their first Christmas together and it's still hanging in there! A tad crushed in spots, but I just make sure those bits are tucked behind an ornament or under a branch. Sentimental, I know! :)

    I drove my parents crazy with icicles when I was a child--wanted to throw them in clumps on the tree. Now I'm a bit more restrained.

    My grandma has icicles that are in long pieces. It is really pretty on her tree. However, she does not have cats......
