Circle of Life: Tinsel and Colored Bulbs.

I have fond childhood memories of decorating a rather large oine tree with really old strands of large colored glass bulbs. The bulbs tended to break or burn out by the end of the holiday season and each year, we found ourselves checking each strand and unscrewing the dead bulbs and screwing in perfect new ones. My dad used a long yellow yellow pole (looked almost like a stretched pencil!) to hoist up these heavy green lines of wire into the tippy top of this tree so the entire neighborhood had its holiday beacon shining bright. The tree has since been cut down and new owners now up take residence there, but I continue to remember the wonderful and festive times we used to share in that house on Brook Drive. It being a night of wrapping gifts and last minute decorating, I wanted to share Design Public’s blog post on a new twist in hanging those colored lights we’ve all come to love. Tinsel garland and multi-colored bulbs create a wreath with vintage qualities and eye-cathing appeal. The santa and reindeer tchochke is a nice vintage touch, dont-cha think? =)
