Christmas Tree and Village

 My artificial Christmas tree had lived out it's life and as it was throwing plastic pine needles all over it went to live in the trash. This year I said I wasn't having a tree since I didn't want to buy one but I thought it might be nice to decorate some of the large house plants I have. The larger tree is actually a ponytail palm plant or an elephant foot plant. The 'foot' is hid under the sheet I wrapped around the base of the plants. The other tree is a drecina houseplant. I did hang a few tree decorations on them as well as wrapping lights around there trunks and the pots. Of course I had help from the cats.

I added the snowpeople, some stuffed kitties, bears and moose and St. Nick behind the tree. Twinkie thought she should live up to her name and twinkle with the lights.

 I have been collecting some of the Christmas village house for some years now. I set them on a table along with the horse and sleighs and drapped lights around the table. I have the ranch house, barn, post office, lighthouse, castle, and coffee shop.

 Wiley our black cat decided he had to be part of the decorations.
