Mz. Yuletide Rosie's Got a Brand New Hat (or Two)






Oh Gawd, Joanne, my tree does NOT look like yours!!! What's a girl in red high heels to do? You must remember that I have NO experience with artificial trees---this is one skinny tree, my friends!! ROFL What? Did you say....oh, I'm supposed to do something else to it besides just stand it up??!! Oh, hmmmmm, well, let's see----I know, I'll just call Seester Sug to come fix this baby since she has LOTS of experience with artificial trees! (Brilliant light-bulb moment!! :D) I'll just run call her now, and I'll be right back! ;> Well, after all of the years that I've helped her put lights on her dang tree----can you believe the nerve----she suggested I get on with 'fluffing out' those gazillion little tiny branches, take THREE aspirins, and call her after I've finished 'fluffing'. (Yeah, I'll be 'fluffing alright!!!! :/ ) Okay, enough Tom-foolery (where did that expression come from? The only Tom I knew (my Dad) had absolutely NO foolery about him whatsoever!! :/

Okay, folks, here's the scoop---I LOVE MY TREE!!!!! IT IS A REAL 'CHARLIE BROWN' TREE!! It's just tooo cute for words. So I'm officially an 'artificial' girl this year. They say there's a first for everything! :> Of course, I have to add lights and ornies, and that will take a little while, but there will be 'after' pictures too. :)

So, Mz. Rosie got her a new 'baby sock' hat, which I forgot to take a picture of her with it on. I'll do that later too. And because Darcie is just the sweetest blogger friend, and sent me an email full of crochet 'how-to's', I sat right down today and made Mz. Rosie a hat and scarf. What do you think? :) Gawd knows I's knows nuffin' bout crochetin', so don't hurt my feelings here friends!!! ROFL

The sunset last night (I think) was absolutely breathtaking, so I had to share it with you. Now, I'll go see if I can get some lights on the tree.

Snort snort, giggle giggle -- ROFL! Too funny! You know, those scrawny lil trees end up being the best loved, just ask Charlie Brown! Maybe all it needs is some red high heels?

Kim said...

LoL! I looked at the fluffed up version of your tree and thought...can she return it? LOL! Kidding! I am certain that ornaments will make it look sweet! I can laugh cause it looks like my tree!

Joanne said...

I love it -- and you have my room -- tall, wood ceilings and wood floor looking out on a snow covered porch!
The tree looks great -- maybe they'll go on sale again after Christmas and we can buy up the stock -- they'll fit anywhere!

Linda said...

And you didn't buy one pre-lit....... Mz Rosei's hat and scart are adorable. Made a start on the angel yet or have you been too busy fluffing?....lol...

Eileen said...

What a laugh, can't wait to see how you get it decorated. LOL

But love your sunset.

ROFLOL...BBIL says looks like someone has been to the Badlands of SD..and Seester says just give that Charlie Brown tree another couple years and it'll look well fluffed.. like some of our birds during this "cold snap":):) You and your bloggers are hilarious!

Libby said...

I went (kicking and screaming *s*) artificial about 8 years ago . . . couldn't be happier. Love your skinny tree!

Rabbit Stitchings said...

Your tree will be great with all your ornies on it! I hated to go artificial too but I must admit I am okay with it now! :O)...

meggie said...

Beautiful photo!

Beth said...

I love the tree AND the hat! we had to go artificial a long time ago because of allergies. I miss the smell..but sometimes go to the tree lot just to SNIFF! (and yes i DO get odd looks! just like every other day of my life! HA!)

Darlene said...

I'll take artificial skinny trees any time. LOL That is a skinny tree but it's cute!

And, Miz Rosie's hat and scarf are adorable. Send her to me! :-)

HI, Just read your comment on my site. Glad you happened by. Your tree looks greeat, and I have to say not at all artificial compared to artifical trees this side of the world (tacky tinsel now in colours of green, red, yellow, white and -new for 2007- black) Love reading about Christmas in Amercia...I think I was a pioneer woman in the prairie in my last life, how else can I explian all the prim and amerciana in my home ?! I also think I made Rosie!! She looks great bythe way!! :-]

craftycherry said...

Hi again..I just reread your comment and to answer your question... I make dishwasher soap by using a desertspoon of baking soda or washing soda and adding just a tad of dishwash to it (like a couple of small drops) Also sometimes I use just vinegar and baking soda. Actually sometimes I forget to put anything in at all and it still seems to come out clean!!! Then again sometimes not Predictaibly unpredictable my dishwasher..

Clare said...

Must show your tree to Alexandra. She insists we have a proper tree this year and it is not to be skinny. I tried to leave a comment yesterday for Mrs Red Shoes, but Google wasn't playing. Have you got black fish nets too?

KCQuilter said...

Since all my Christmas trees are skinny, Charlie Brown types, I am, of course, loving yours!!!! Can't wait to see it all decked out.

Darcie said...

OH oh oh!!! I love it all: From you adorable Charlie Brown tree...(I've been wanting one like that, by the way...care to share where you purchased it? Or what brand it is? I'd be ever so thankful!)...to your Mz. Rosie's frillie little crocheted hat!!! She's precious...and now fully clothed! Life is good.

Yes, I'll agree with saying that your sunset was breathtaking. How heavenly!

Marcie said...

Today is Friday, so you probably have your tree all decked out by now. I will be watching for a picture! Your doll is so adorable, and I like that little snowman pillow too. Wow, we want it all, don't we? Be careful climbing ladders in those red high heels!

Nan said...

I have never seen an artificial tree like that before! They don't "grow" them like that in Washington State. It will look wonderful all decorated.
Mz. Rosie just gets cuter with each addition you make! Love the pillow she's leaning against, too!
Thank you for sharing the beautiful sunset. I'd be happy to see some sunshine right now!!

julieQ said...

Hmm. I think your tree looks a bit ... Scroogish at the moment. Looking forward to seeing it all decorated - sure it'll look great.

Looking forward to seeing your tree all fluffed and decked out, it's pretty cute the way it is. Mz. Rosie is stylin'. Well done!
