Here is mine from last year. I think I'll do a real tree this year, if I can find an affordable Silver tip.

Over Thanksgiving weekend I stopped at an antique store in Cashmere WA and one of the spaces was full of vintage Christmas ornaments including a vintage color wheel still in the original box. Asking price was $100. Very cool, but I passed.

I inherited my aluminum tree when my husband's grandmother passed away in 2009. I got the ornaments up on it yesterday but I took a video of it in the dark with the color wheel running the other night:

it is all still in it's original boxes with the original paper sleeves each branch goes into. grandma always took care of her stuff.

Catmomma, have you considered pulling the light further away from the tree to get a more complete spectrum of light on the tree?

Ive had a very crudely made resin grape lamps gathering dust tucked away for years and this year decided to dust off the individual grapes for ornaments and voila, instant Christmas with 20 pounds of weight add to the tree.

Here is our tree this year. Found a nice color wheel, the mid-century modern looking one. I will try and post a picture of it later.

I thought I had posted a photo of this tree I picked up a few years ago at a yard sale during the summer months, but since I don't see it here, I'm putting it up.



Wishing everyone here another Very Merry Christmas!
