Rockin' Round the Elvis Tree


Last January I posted a photo essay called Deconstructing the Elvis Tree. This Christmas it seemed only appropriate to show you how the Elvis Tree is created. The Elvis Tree is an artificial white tree (from K-Mart of course) decorated with blue lights, blue bulbs and all Elvis themed ornaments. A model of Graceland under the tree is the final touch each year.

So here, in entirely un-Photoshopped photos is the construction of the Elvis Tree:

This was such an incredible post and hilarious series of photos. It proves to the world that if something feels good to you - do it for yourself.

Thanks Miss Bliss, I actually do if for the cats. They like to mess with Graceland and knock over the fans waiting outside the fence.

JP, the temptation is to say, "Thank you, thankyouverymuch..." But then I couldn't live with myself. Merry Elvisness to you as well.

I love the photo series. Especially the way you stood in almost the exact same place while taking the first several. You look as good in a white tree tutu as you did the pink.

I also absolutely loved the story about your childhood in the previous entry. Didn't have time to comment till now. I didn't know anyone with one of those aluminum jobs. No one I knew had something that schnazzy. Fantastic story.

Hey Whitesnake, welcome back. How was holiday?

Thanks Shandi,
Glad you liked the tutu. And the story was fun to remember. I'm not even sure my brothers remember it now. And the aluminum tree was pretty fancy for us!
