Thrifty Christmas Tree

I walked over to the consignment shop on Thursday and found a one of a kind Christmas Tree. It seemed a little pricey at $50 but then I thought real ones are about $25 so it really isn't that bad of an investment. We should be able to enjoy the tree for years to come. It's in pretty good condition. I returned Friday morning to purchase it. I asked the clerk if the stand was homemade. She said yes a little old man came in with it and said he wanted a smaller tree. I can just imagine all the Christmas's this tree has spent bringing joy to that little old man and his family.

Isn't this mantle piece the cutest? It has lights that flicker to make it look like flames.
