very traditional



Saucy managed to get the tree up sooner rather than later this year... she even got the foyer tree up and the stair garlands are hung, but she'll show those to you next week.


It's not a theme tree this year like others - no particular colour scheme... but an assortment of all the traditional mercury glass ornaments that have been saved and passed down over the years. Saucy is especially happy with her new 10 foot slimline pre-lit tree to show them off. The other tree she had for this room was just too full and fat, it looked a little cramped. The pre-lit tree is the cat's pyjamas. Saucy will never look back now.

Saucy likes her Christmas trees the way she likes her men: a little on the taller side, not too thick, and easy to manage.


With the new kitchen looking so old fashioned and traditional, this just seemed like a nice way to go with the main tree. No, the presents aren't wrapped yet. But this is one big task off the list. Time to get shopping! Saucy is off to Chicago to hit the Magnificent Mile over the weekend. Next week, the wrapping. Ugh.

Enjoy your time in our fair city...and pack for wet weather! The tree looks pretty...almost convinces me not to get a real one.

Beautiful tree! I love all the ornaments on it! The slim line works well in that space!
Happy shopping!
