A Thrifty Christmas Tree

This year Ann wanted to decorate a bare branch tree ... she actually found this just pitched along the roadside a few weeks ago .. wrote down it's exact location and her beau picked it up and brought it home.  I just let her have at it and this is what whimsy looks like.

Last year I put up our regular big tree, fully decorated. But over in the corner in dining room I had a little Charlie Brown type tree decorated much like your daughter's tree here. I received just as many compliments on that scrawny tree as our big one.
