Patra's Other Place

I started out with Patra's Place, primarily dedicated to my linen collection and stitching projects. But I kept getting side-tracked, so I decided to create Patra's Other Place for anything not related to embroidery topics. So you now have a choice. If you are interested in me, read this. If you only want to see my linen and stitching, visit Patra's (original) Place! (Please note that by clicking on any of the photos, they will be enlarged to fill your computer screen.)

More about black Christmas trees.

One of the many fascinating aspects of blogging is reading other people's opinions of things, and the Black Christmas Tree item certainly sparked a few of you into responding!
Alice: I also think it is important that fake trees look reasonably lifelike. Not keen on those white plastic ones..
Kathie: You stay on your soap box my girl! You are so right about the real dark side of Christmas. I just hate all the commercialism that has taken over the original reason for the season. You haven't offended anyone (anyone who reads my blog has to be broadminded in more ways than one!)
Jeanette: I'd love to see a pic of your daughter's house. You've just reminded me to go on a drive and photograph some of the stunningly decorated homes around Greensborough.
Lindsay: Good analogy about painting a house black then trying to brighten it up!

Hi Gina,
I'm just getting caught up. It's a bit funny as my hubby and I were talking about this very thing yesterday. The other popular thing we've seen is a bright red tree with black ornaments and an upside down Christmas tree!
I personally think people have lost focus about Christmas. My two cents worth.
