My Christmas Tree

Since I travel back to Chicago for the holidays, in the 10 years I’ve lived in Brooklyn, I’ve yet to have a real Christmas tree in my apartment.   So this year, I think we may resurrect our studio Christmas tree from a couple of years ago.

Made of dead umbrellas that we found on the street during a rainy night in NYC, it’s hung from the ceiling, weighted down with a rock, topped with part of a hubcap, and decorated with fortune cookie fortunes we collected for the year.  It’s pretty ghetto, but it makes me happy anyway.  Happy Holidays!
