A Secondhand Holiday

Dear Reader,
Today I bought a real live Christmas tree. Now, I know what you're thinking- it could not possibly have been secondhand! While this may be true, I do feel that the circumstances surrounding the purchase were very similar to that of a garage sale. Also, as this is the first Christmas tree I have had in my adult life, I have no decorations at all. I have decided that the tree trimming will be a season long process and only secondhand items will grace the tree's lovely boughs. I will keep you all updated with each new development!

In the spirit of thrift, we used the leftovers to decorate the mantle. The search for secondhand holiday cheer now begins!
