After six (or more) years of using red pepperberry garland on my tree, I decided it was time for a change.  This year, I've used poinsettias and a new topper that I made to replace the angel (her lights needed restringing).

Here's the "before" from last Christmas:


And here's the after:

Nope.  They're artificial.  I bought a bunch and put them in the topper, too.

I do, too, Jill.  :)

There's something about using white lights for me, that it makes all of our ornaments more visible (maybe not so much in a picture taken at night, but still) and the poinsettias added just enough *pop* to it without covering up all of our ornamental "memories".    I'm keeping it this way for a while, I think.  lol.
