I was thinking that I would go outside and see if I could find an appropriate branch that I could recycle to be an indoor tree. I didn't have much luck,
But when I walked through the Christmas display at Walmart, this "branch tree" caught my eye. It's 48" tall wired with white lights. It's not quite what I had in mind, but I brought it home anyway.
My Thanksgiving display is in honor of Indians. I have a lot of Indian and Bison figurines in my home. I added orange lights to the tree, my favorite Indian and a Buffalo (on the left). I can turn either the white or orange lights off if I want, but I like them both on. The vignette gives a soft glow on that end of the room.
I plan to leave the tree there until I need to have the air on and change the light color and decor with whatever holiday/event I am decorating for.
In case you wonder, we now leave the air conditioner in the window year round. Terry is no longer able to remove and replace it. We hate to depend on anyone else to do it. I cover the front of the window with that shrink clear plastic which really does keep the cold air out.
This display reminds me of Thanksgiving and all that I have to be thankful for. I mentally enumerate them, ticking them off one by one with Terry and family always at the top. The list is never ending.
