O, Christmas Tree – In & Out of the RV

5 Comments

Welcome, baby plastic tree!

I can’t stand it!

Two fresh pine trees outside, one planted and one cut, both decorated with white lights and silver stars and well watered. One potted artificial tree with blue lights next to the door. That doesn’t cut it for me, the lover of all things Christmas tree. The inside of the RV was too bare.

But with 2 kitties, lack of floor space, and no extra counter space, what is one to do?

Get a tree anyway.

Welcome little plastic tree, pre-wired and covered with plastic ornaments. Thank you for lighting up our indoor Christmas space. I know the kitties can’t hurt you, though they try, and you can’t (shouldn’t?) break.

So again, welcome. How lovely are your tiny little fake branches and your cheerful glow!

3 trees – tiny in front, tall in the middle, and blue next to the door.

Outdoor Tree Update: The Christmas tree down count is 3 wind events, which equals 3 pick-up-the-tree-and-replace-the-stars outings.

How about you? How many trees do you have? Do you have to pet-proof your Christmas decor? I’d love to hear I am not alone!

I live with my husband and two crazy kitties. I love having my grandchildren nearby so we can play and have messy fun. I spend oodles of time writing and reading. You can usually find me sipping tea or coffee, nibbling on dark chocolate, and contemplating what to plant next in the garden. If I am not playing, eating, drinking, or planting, then I am probably creating cards with rubber stamps or out snapping photos with my camera.

  1. What fun! We have two trees up. Merry Christmas!

  2. Lovely! We have one 3-foot high artificial tree, decorated with lights and homemade seashell ornaments. It’s kiitty Midnight’s tree (on her grooming table/aka entry desk) and she loves it. She sleeps under it, occasionally bats at an ornament; but her kitty toy basket is nearby with a few kitty-proof baubles for her to catch and toss to her adoring human parents. Also, a ‘tree cookie’ is nearby—a 4-inch section of oak–for her manicures. Oh what fun. Wishing you and yours a Very Merry Christmas! πŸ™‚

    • Thank you, Bette! Yes, we have a big (for the RV) scratching pad tree with lounging pads plus one of those cardboard scratchers which they love. I’m sure both of those things have saved all sorts of upholstery. LOL. We do love our kitties, don’t we? Wishing you a very Merry Christmas as well!
