    See, now tonight I was walking around walmart and went to look at their fake trees. I got my first one from walmart. That first one, it was made to last. It had a HUGE diam. trunk and the wires for the branches were stiff and heavy, not like the cheapies that are on the market now. I'll be checking at Hobby Lobby, Lowes and Home Depot tomorrow. Perhaps I can find one that is worth the money they want for them.

    Your tree, btw Judy, is beautiful.
    I see that you like multicolor lights too. Michael prefers a single color of lights , then a couple strands of clear ones to brighten it. I guess I don't mind because I have a "junkatorium" style of decorating my trees. I love all sorts of different ornaments. There are only a couple of "musts" in my tree. It MUST have at least one bird(preferably in nest) and it MUST have at least one fabric, bent leg elf.... there are always santas and beads and stuff, but those two things are what I remember most from my parent's tree over the years and I just followed suit.

    Mine has good strong metal base to the branches
    the first tree I bought looked more natural it had bark on the trunk area but it broke when my cat at the time jumped on it
    it must have thought the bird was real
    I have a gilded bird in a golden nest that I made years ago
    from grass and gold spray paint and glue
    there are many hand made ornaments and an egg my son made in 3rd grade I have a humming bird on there I love made from glass and lots of gold glass balls that reflect the lights
    I love multi colored lights on the tree
    I bought this tree in Sears a long time ago..
    I have a lot of glass ornaments angels and birdbaths snowflakes
    it only has some of my ornaments on it I still have 2 boxes downstairs I am making it simple
    when my kids were small we used to string popcorn for the tree then when we put it outside the birds ate the popcorn
