Christmas 2009

Here's a Christmas idea that Ann Arbor residents can appreciate. A recycled, reused and repurposed Christmas.
In 2009, I decided to begin celebrating the season again after a several year hiatus, but I didn't want to spend any money to do it.
First, there's gingerbread cookies.
Then, my tree, er, branch, came from my property; the stand is a recycled plastic jug. The pine cone decorations came attached to the branch, while the popcorn was strung with care (and supervision from my puppy) from a tin I'd been given as a gift.
There are bows and handmade ornaments, too.
The result is pretty cute, I think. But you be the judge.
Now, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.
