Please Call Me CLARK !

Here it is ...
The FLOCKIN...oops .... Flocked tree...
The humidity is so bad here it took four days for the nursery to have a day nice enough to flock it.
  I really did not feel like messing with this tree,
The lights are the worst part...

My son wanted blue lights...not really what I wanted, but being he is the only one in the house that really wanted a tree, we bought the blue lights.

Oh heck no, 
 do you  see the green wires?
No one told me...
I saw it when I  stepped back.
(It was 10pm and I was not stopping now)

Look a little closer...
This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here!

Yes,  there they are!
(I am starting to feel like Clark Griswold)

Kinda like that BIG ole piece of spinach on your front tooth and not one person is gonna speak up!
Don't laugh you know what I mean...

It's ok,
I am working on a plan...
Because the flocking falls off so bad there is
 I am taking those blue lights off.

Call to Camo Man (Hubby)...tell him, we need
 lights with white wires...he says,
" NO, use the lights we've got, cause we have
spent to much on the FLOCKIN tree."

moving on to

 I am going to shove those  blue little monsters down in the tree and put the so many ornaments we
won't need the lights...

(ok for the rest of the season, call me Clark!)

PLAN #3 
 Hey, maybe I could pull one of the spotlights out of the landscape, wire it to the ceiling and have that shining down on the tree ...

 Just to get an idea of the FLOCKING,
look at the socks I wore last night.
Can someone send me some socks and vaccum cleaner bags?


I have got to save this tree and my sanity...well guess you will have to check back and see if I make it through the day or  even the whole flocking season!

Oh I love a flocked tree! They are beatuiful when all done up. I would have never thought about the green wire showing up either. I say fill the tree so full of decorations that the green wire won't be seen. It will be beatuiful, I know. Can't wait to see the finished product!

I love flocked trees, and you have a pretty one there. I can't wait to see the final product. I have one pre-made, pre-lit flocked tree, and although it is messy, it is by far my favorite tree I have done this year. Good luck, girl!! I had to laugh at the *flocked* sock...

Happy Decorating! xo ~Liz

YOU.ARE.SO.FUNNY! Can't wait to see the end product...I'm sure it will be gorgeous! :)

Hey Clark ! You crack me up- all you need now is some flocken rabid squirrel to jump out at you! Those socks are toast. ; )
Whatever you do, it'll be beautiful. You're a clever girl!

This post cracked me up... My mom says I only get a flocked tree so I can say the word flocked! I think you are worse then me!!! I was seriously looking at your close up picture for a squirrel.
I know you will work it all out, in the mean time thanks for the laugh.
BTW: One year we cut down our own tree from a tree farm and brought it in our house, decorated it...THEN realized it was FULL of spiders-They were babies and they hatched when the tree warmed up in the house, they were EVERYWHERE!

You ok over there sista? I mean's gonna be ok. I'll bring the kitty litter desert and the wrapped cat!! LOL

NanaDiana said...

Oh I hate flocking those trees. Next time take a spray bottle...mix 2parts water with one part white PAINT and spray away in your yard. It does NOT come off and it looks beautiful...just sayin...what blue lights? I can only see wires!;>) xo Diana

Sue said...

How about buying a couple of cans of spray snow and coating all those green wires? Don't know if it will work, but it's a shot! Good luck- and don't worry about a squirrel hiding inside your tree- no rodent could survive in all that chemical coating. :-)

It's going to look great no matter what you do! I can't wait to see the finished result (^^,)

I know this will be beautiful when you are thru-but I think I would have bought an artifical flocked tree-less messy. I call my neighbors the Griswolds-oh the tacky stuff they put in their yard! LOL!

JuJu and Family said...

This post cracks me up. We just went on a road trip that made me feel like a Griswold. I wrote about it on my blog.
Merry Christmas!

Stephanie said...

OH my gosh, we get so wrapped up in getting everything so perfect. It is great that you can have a sense of humor about it all. Merry Christmas to you and your family! Flocked and all!
