Christmas 2013

Some notes:

  • 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.
