Decorating Tip

We moved things around quite a bit this year when decorating. No plan at all, the kids all brought up boxes and got to decking and we switched things up. We wanted to move the junk tree, but trees take up so much room there aren't many places for them.  Then I thought why not leave off some branches and just put it right up against the wall? 

Now, I'm thinking they should actually sell half trees! More people would have room and less money for the tree.  One is probably available somewhere.

But of course, you make your own half tree by just leaving off branches.  Now my junk tree fits perfectly in a new space and doesn't obstruct the traffic through our dining room.

I thought maybe someone else could use this idea too.  I'm sure it's not original, but it was to us here.

You can see the original junk tree posts here and here.

Off for more baking, wrapping, scurrying....


  1. Yep they've sold half trees for decades. When I was in college and worked at a nursery/christmas shop we sold em. Here's my new tip for this year. Take off the bottom segment of a three tier tree to make it fit into a corner. (My black/white one) Aren't we both clever? lol

  2. I've not heard of half trees before, but it's a great solution for tight spaces. Your junk tree looks like lots of fun.

  3. After years off blogger, and being sucked in to the abyss of Pinterest, I finally found those that inspired me and you are one. I remember the Junkle Bells challenge, and seeing sweet pictures of you daughters (they have grown!). Always enjoy your posts.


Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit!
