Everyday Life: Modern decorating

With the kids quietly slumbering upstairs, John and I sat down to eat a quiet, late dinner.

"Did you notice the new decorations on the tree?" John asked.

I shook my head no.

"You should look," he prompted

What? Like your tree has never sported a pirate hat and two sole inserts?

Apparently, G. has redefined the word decorations.

I expect a phone call from Better Homes and Gardens any day now.


  1. Hahaha! That is awesome. I think your G and my G would be excellent partners in crime :D

  2. The pirate hat I understand, but the soles? Well, hey, I guess every tree needs a little "soul." Ha. Okay, so I really hate puns. Sorry to do that to you. I'm typing this way past my bedtime, obviously.

    But really, that little G of yours is probably onto something there... You'll see, next year all the trees will be sporting hats and soles.

  3. Lol! I think G has excellent design tastes. Could I call him for a consult on decorating my tree?

  4. That's awesome. My guy would love the pirate hat on the tree. I should show this to him. Or maybe not... ;-)

  5. That sounds like something I could expect in my house.

  6. Oh I love it!! My trees have sported mittens, scarfs, hats and shoes before, but I haven't seen a pirate hat before!!

  7. You'll never forget your "pirate tree"!

  8. I think that's a ton of fun. Except for the part that your tree was up before my birthday of course ;) I can't wait to see what he decides needs to be added next!


There's nothing better than good conversation ... but not while talking to myself. Will you play a part in this discussion?

AND will you pretty please have your email linked to your account or leave it for me so I can respond?

Thanks for taking the time to make these thoughts into conversation.
