East Tennessee Christmas Tree

We hiked out to the forest near our house a few days ago to pick out a good Christmas Advent tree. I think we found a winner. We only ran into one panther this year, so it was a good excursion.

After we letthe tree sit out for a day or so to make sure the critters were out of it, we brought it in and decorated it. We decided on a homemade theme year. We strung popcorn and dried orange slices for garlands, and also hung some hardened gingerbread men (and women) as decorations. We also added some candied and lacquered apples from the fall that we painted in green and red. The angel at the top is hand croqueted by my mother.

I think its right pretty.

Is that a Johnny Cash album stuck in the tree?
