I guess it's a keeper!
I swear this tree did not look this big at the tree lot! It's behemoth! and takes up a big portion of the living room. Granny got all giggly and said it reminds her of tree's she had growing up and she started telling me about all of her Mother's glass ornaments that were from Germany.
They're still good people in the world. The nice proprietor of the tree lot only charged me $30.00 for this tree and i know it was at least priced at $45.00. He even through in a wreath for free and told me it was for Granny to enjoy :)
