Christmas Vacation. Perf. Chevy Chase. Dir. Jeremiah S. Chechik. 1989. Warner Bros. Pictures

TIME:  9:29 PM
PLACE:  Living room
SUBJECT:  Christmas tree #2

This is a 6-foot tree that I originally purchased to decorate our front porch…and it did for several years.  Then last year I realized that if I wanted to display my thrift store ornaments, I would need another tree.  So, I changed tactics on the outside d├ęcor and kept this inside for my treasures.  Funny, I would get jealous of the themed trees I saw in magazines or at department stores - you know, the ones where all the ornaments matched  – but tonight I noticed that all of my thrifty ornaments co-ordinate wonderfully with their main colors of red and white.  Without even trying, I have a themed tree.
