    Just thought I would share with everyone my new idea for a Christmas tree. [​IMG] ....... a christmas ladder!! My reasoning behind this is, it has snowed a lot lately and finding a smaller tree in the woods is kind of hard right now. Also I am not a big fan of fake trees, or buying live ones. So I came up with the christmas ladder, lol. I still think its funny. Enjoy!!

    I like the way your mind works..!! Great idea..

    Do you have trees outside that you could cut low branches off of to lace it with real branches??

    Again .. great idea!

    Now THAT is clever! You get present storage AND a tree.

    May have to steal this when our current tree dies...

    WOW! That's wonderful! I have been thinking on alternatives, but that never occurred to me. [​IMG]

    My biggest worry is 3 cats who climb ladders all the time.

    Hehe, now that makes me glad we've got dogs. [​IMG]

    Though, if I hung a sausage up there I wouldn't put it past Mattie to try... I swear she's part mountain goat.
