    Love the orange slice, berry, popcorn garland. Are those just plain raw cranberries?
    Cute gingerbread men!

    No, I don’t put a sealer on them. I dried them for about three or four hours in the dehydrator.

    Simply just beautiful! The birds will love it after the tree comes down. The animals will love the cookies. The rabbits and small game will love the tree. What a totally recyclable Christmas tree!

    your tree is lovely. This inspires me to put up one of my own. Or not. On second thought, I think I will simply enjoy yours! :happyflower:

    Suzanne,
    Your tree is really nice! We don’t even have ours yet…this week I hope to get it (we always get a “ditch cedar”). I have been drying orange peel for firestarter and orange slices for the tree as per your instructions! I am nothing if not an obedient reader. 8-)

    It is icy and the temperature is dropping rapidly here today…so off to feed the cattle, then get a few supplies, then have an indexing deadline to make, THEN get to bake stuff for Christmas. Thanks for listening to my little “life for a day” story.

    How do you get the oranges to string “flat”? Fabulous tree!!

    I thread the needle into one side of the orange then out the other side. That way, it lays flat across the garland. I use white thread, so you can’t see it.

    I’ve never thought of putting orange slices on a garland, but seeing yours makes me want to do it. So beautiful.

    The anticipation of viewing the entire tree is almost too much to bare.
    Though,what you have shown us is ‘SIMPLY’ lovely.

    Do the dogs ear the pop corn from the garlands? Or are they all outside only dogs?

    Yes, they are outdoor dogs! They’d be eating the cookies off the tree if they were in here, LOL.

    Beautiful tree! LOVE it – you’ve inspired me to go “green” with our tree. The kids and I are baking cookies for the tree today.

    How do you keep the cats out of the tree? We had to give up having a real tree because we couldn’t keep the cats out of it. They love to climb! I can imagine the trouble we’d have with all those goodies on the tree!

    They haven’t been bothering it much except for what’s at the bottom. They’re indoor-outdoor cats, so they are out a lot, too.

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
