  • My favorite Christmas story
    Remembering the year I moved into a new place just before Christmas. The electric was not on due to issues, so we spent the holiday in the dark with only my vintage aluminum tree and candles in the window.

  • Biography
    I grew up in a small midwestern town and eventually made it to the city. I got excited about Holiday Decorating as far back as I can remember. When I was very young, I remember my dad putting a string or two of C9's on one of the aborvitae bushes in our yard. That was the extent of the exterior decor.

  • About my display
    I love a more traditional look. I have always used c9 & c7 lights in my displays, especially on evergreens, as well as clear minis on the bare trees and shrubs. I also have to use a few blow molds, even though some folks find them tacky. I have a small yard, so I also decorate the back yard for the neighbors to see. I like to use a few twinkle bulbs in the mix for some added interest.
  1. Those are fantastic! I have my grandmother's old strands and used them on my mother's tree this year, complete with the double flashing effect! Loved it!
  2. I picked this up at a resale store. I've never seen one like it before and it's bigger than a lot of the flat-backs I've seen. Does anyone know who made it and approx how old it is?? Thanks!
  3. This is great! I LOVE the commercial decorations from the 60-70's. These are what I remember as a kid from a small town in Missouri. There is also a company in Independence, MO, Manneco, that still makes some of the old style pole-mounts and also sells used and refurbished decorations. http://www.manneco.com/
