know they were fighting the revolution and all, but what would they have thought
of this new take on the traditional Christmas tree?

What if the white tree were covered in red velvet HO HO HO’s and red oraments and red crocheted Christmas garland, with tiny red stools tucked under it’s glistening white branches?
….next to white chippy plates spelling out the sentiment of the season.
But something tells me that Betsy would have approved of my new look….the bright, white shining branches decked with red ornaments and festooned with red garland.
For after all….
….we all know she was a big fan of the….(get ready for it)
…..red, white, and blue 🙂
