RE: holiday decorating

During one of our remodelings, when the living room was all tore apart
and there was no place to put a full size tree and being too cheap to
spend money on an artifical tree for one season, here was my solution...

I took a large terracotta pot, put a standard sized tomate cage into it
upside down (so the "legs" were sticking up!), wired the legs together
to form a point, put a large heavy rock into the bottom to keep it from
tipping, and wrapped the tomato cage with two of those lighted indoor
artificial garlands...put the decorations on and voila! a beautiful
little Christmas tree at no cost, made from stuff I already had around
the house. My kids loved it! It was just their size and it fit perfectly
on top of the buffet. :-)

Of course the animals here all have their own stockings and

anyways.<br><br>Donna<br>Yipes Kitty!- If you gave the tree away where

too. I had to laugh - in this issue of AARP<br>Magazine it<br>> said
that 64 percent of Americans hang a stocking at Christmas
for<br>their<br>> pet.<br>> <br>> By the way, I grew up in Homewood, IL,
