My hubby hates trees....

Well...not all trees...just MINE!...lol

I told you in my last post that I was going to try to get stuck into another craft project....

....well .... I had this idea...

I have some old table legs/bannisters in my craftshed and I have been looking at them and looking at them since I picked them up a few years back ...but wasn't certain exactly what I wanted to do with them..until I came up with this "great" idea!
Well...it WAS great until I couldn't get my initial attempt to work...so I changed the goalpost and came up with an easier alternative...."as we do!"....(but I swear I will be having another attempt at the elusive "great idea"...lol)

I made a tree....
...it's probably not very impressive as far as trees go ...but I really don't think it warranted the screwed up and disgusted face that hubby pulled when I showed it to him...followed by  the accompanying comment of "WHO on earth is going to want to buy THAT???"...I mean really was it necessary to be so rude???...lol

Well...I love my little scrawny tree and if no-one does buy it after I list it on my website for sale I am totally determined to find a VERY prominent possie in MY house to put it where Jeff can enjoy it every day!!!...or maybe I'll just put it away and wrap it up for him for Christmas...hee hee!- evil laugh (although you all know I'm not evil and would never do a thing like that- hee hee! - oops there I go again)

Anyways...that being said
....here is my scrawny tree...lol


  

...hope you do too...or are YOU a tree hater like my hubby...lol

Until next time ...

  16. I have all the makings for a tree like that, only until now, I had no idea what to make. Tell him that I will be making some in Alabama. Love the idea. If a person takes the Christmas stuff off, it would make a good year-round addition to the house. Linda
