Over-Accessorized Trees

This tree is perhaps a bit like your eccentric elderly aunt, the one who has donned a few too many accessories (a colorful scarf, a big chunky necklace, clattering bangles, rings on every finger). She smells like Shalimar and kisses you, loudly, on both cheeks, leaving incarnadine lipstick behind... (OK, I made that up--I don't have an aunt like that, but it would be cool if I did!)

This tree has shown a bit more restraint than that . . . but please note the striped accent bark.

I'm totally enjoying the trees with accessories series. It's so creative. Okay, off to Big Bear for the weekend! If I see any accessorized trees, I'll take a picture!
