O Tannenbaum


Since moving away from Crockett I haven’t exactly been the most consistent as far as Christmas tree’s are concerned.  I had a two foot tall fake one I think I used at Baylor once, and in my first three years at Michigan (where there are an abundance of real ones littering the landscape) I didn’t want to deal with the picking up/arranging/disposal of it all.  Quite frankly the whole notion of holiday decorating seems like too much of a hassle to me.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about a  themed house… it’s just that I tend to do best with say, a themed shelf or corner.

So this year I have the “Christmas tree” set up in my bedroom:

With a some help from Lady Mahalia (Mrs. Jackson if ya nasty!) and Lil’ Babz


When I moved into my new apartment in Ann Arbor I re-purposed a branch from outside my patio and hung it in the living room above my sofa.  Seeing how it was already there just begging to be used—which meant I had to do nothing more than hang the ornaments—I  thought it would be the perfect Christmas tree.


Unfortunately, this awkwardly shaped behemoth didn’t exactly fit into the u-Haul for the trek back to Texas. Worry not, though, dear readers, because Mary (my fellow Dap-Queen and entertainer of presidents) inherited it and has been putting it to good use!


I. love. it! Even if it is technically a retrograde inversion of the original. STOP BEING SUCH A SERIALIST!!!

Now, if you wanna see what some real tree-decoratin’ looks like, check out Crazy Christmas Lady  Little Miss Christmas Jan’s guest entry on “Or So She Says…” all about innovative Christmas tree decorating ideas! Texas theme tree anyone?!?

  1. Is the scarf part of the holiday decor or is it always there?

  2. there's generally a rotation of attire on my good friend there!
