This lately constructed Christmas tree borrows heavily from the local landscape. In a response to the heavily loaded tinsellated furbelowed, gew-gaws of the season, I am hoping to find a balance between the local ambiance with its elegantly minimal palette ( thanks to Winifred Belmont's wonderful art work) and idea of rubbing two sticks together while spending no more than $15 and 20 minutes. The Mexican mulberry paper lights were lurking in the cupboard. Long live the cable tie I say.
But then, Things develop, a lovely Banbury Cross moment arrives and there are frocks, pomegranates and green horses.Why not?
