Tree and skirt

Our old tree was too big for almost all the places we’ve lived. For several years we’ve only put up the top two thirds, shimming it into the base to get it to be somewhat stable that way. Even then it was rather wider than we really had space for. For the last year or three we’ve been looking and thinking, and finally Mark chose this one — not only slender but also hinged and prelit. We’re happy with it.

Would you like to have the old one? It’s still in great shape after all these years. A dark spruce, 7′, 60″ diameter. Comes with several bundles of multicolored lights that, as far as we know, still work. Sorry, local folks only.

Having a new tree motivated me to finally make a real tree skirt instead of just bunching a white blanket around the base. This one buttons up the back, and could be reversible, with a holly pattern on the back.
