A shoot-out of Christmas proportions

Y'all, I'm gonna let you in on a family secret.

Sean hates my tree topper. Hates it. Every year he asks me if we are getting a new one. I always say no and remind him that I got it from his mother and I loved it from the first second I saw it. In fact I think I stole it from her or one of his sisters. At a big after-Christmas sale a few years ago one of them bought it and then no one remembered whose it was when they unpacked their goodies.

So naturally I claimed it. Naturally.

Even though I wasn't technically AT the sale at all. I mean, we're family.

Sean suggested that I post a picture of my beloved topper and ask y'all what you think: keep it or toss it, which I'm telling you mow I'm not gonna do...but I'm willing to risk losing the battle if I'm that far off about what looks good on top of a Christmas tree. In all honesty I'll probably leave it on top of our tree but at least the man of the house will feel like he's being heard. :)

So here it is. I'll happily post daytime pictures too if y'all need them.

So let the games begin. Just remember who gives stuff away to you people before you say anything nasty.

I have to say it's not my most favorite, but if you like it that's all that matters! I think it's quite a fun topper, I'm just more of a traditional (or boring, I guess!) kind of gal!

I love star toppers, but I think it needs to be brighter. Can you sort of wind some of your string lights around it or behind it? It needs to glow a little more.

I hope y'all have something fun riding on this!! It's beautiful and unique!

I like it! It totally wouldn't go with my rustic tree but it looks great on yours! :) It's funny that Sean hates it so much! I like that it is different.

I love it! What's not to like? It's a star, it's big, it's fun! I have half a dozen ornaments on my tree just like it. :)

What kind of topper does he want, anyway?
