Real or fake?

Sad to say: fake.

Creepy Query Girl said...

awe, real all the way. Unfortunately you can't cut down your own here (where I grew up in CT it was a yearly tradition:(. So we use the same fake one every year rather than buy a dried out already cut one.

That looks so fun, but we have and always will have a fake tree. Just easier and less maintenance.

Maddy said...

How adorable! My tree is fake just because it's more convenient in my rented apartment, but when I have my own place, I'm going real for sure!

Melissa Gill said...

Oh, I remember those wonderful days of going to the Christmas Tree farm ato cut down a tree. I don't even have a tree, I just enjoy the ones at my partent's and sisters'.

Love this. I'm going with real.

The Happy Whisk said...

Very fun.

Shannon said...

Real. All the way. I LOVE the hat with the antlers. I want one!!

Ben Spendlove said...

Oh, fake. But it's pre-lit and so easy to put up! I'm a sucker (sellout?) for low-maintenance.

We haven't got ours yet. We usually get ours closer to Christmas. My husband's family is German, and like my Finnish side of the family, they don't put it up until Christmas Eve. I prefer it much sooner than that. Nothing like the smell of pine to make you feel all Christmasy. :D

Meredith said...

I have always, ALWAYS wanted to get a Christmas tree like this. Looks like a ton of work, but so amazing!

Janet Johnson said...

Those look just like our trip last weekend! Real, for sure (giving away my position for my own blog's debate, but that's okay). :)

What a great way to get a tree. I have a fake tree but only because I have over 700 ornaments and I keep it up until mid-January. Sometimes I buy a real tiny real tree because I love the smell of them.

Clara said...

Real! Ohw lovely pictures!

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

Real this year but usually fake. I love the aroma but my daughter is always fussing about saving the trees.

Christina Lee said...

Susan-- Funny you say that b/c I just did a column for the newspaper on tree farms and apparently it is very “green” to get a live tree from a farm for various reasons: they are grown like a crop would be, and some states require the farm to plant 3 saplings in one tree's place.

Fake all the way!

Meream said...

I'd kill for a real tree. Unfortunately, we don't grow those here. Haha

My heart and soul tells me real but our circumstances dictate fake. Loving the photo of Little Red Ridinghood.

I use a fake tree, with three parts. One year, I forgot the top part and wondered why it looked so weird! Used to do fresh trees. Decided I didn't need the mess, anymore.

BTW: How am I going to get the book to you? The email keeps bouncing!

Christina Lee said...

Sharlene, am I having a brain freeze? What book?

Lourie said...

Fake. I buy pine scented candles and stink up the place. :P
