- no greenery this year. It's beyond my budget; last year, I lucked out and got a windfall from a neighbor who lost an evergreen to Hurricane Sandy.
- everything is either from the flea market, Good Will or they are items I previously owned
- the "garland" on the tree is the wire part of some wired ribbon. I bought a big roll of it at Michael's last year on clearance. I cut the wired edges off of both sides of the ribbon, cut them into manageable sections and wrapped them around my hand to curl. I then gently pulled them out - like a Slinky - and draped them on the tree. They give a delicate sparkle to the tree.
