After years of hoping I'd find one (cheaply) it finally happened! An aluminum Christmas tree! A 6-foot Sparkler, in the box! I bought this at an auction in July.

I acquired the revolving tree stand 3 years ago in THIS haul. Making the picture complete...
The color wheel! I bought the day after Thanksgiving this year off of Craigslist. It had been listed and relisted because of the damage. Since it was damaged I was able to negotiate a very nice price.
To top it all off, my family allowed me to decorate with it this year! No real tree, just my aluminum beauty! I normally have "my" tree down in the basement. Well, with Jake off at college we decided to take the simple approach. I don't know if it will ever happen again, so I am enjoying it!
