The Christmas Bough

Last night I got invited with my friends Daisy and Trout for a trek in the woods. The goal? To find the perfect Christmas bough.

We went armed with supplies. 

 Initially, we got sidetracked and built a fire out of poison oak sticks. Then we lost the saw, the dog collar and a cell phone.

After getting our bearings, we found the perfect redwood Christmas bough, and with the help of Bing Crosby, Wham, and Mariah Carey, set to work making things jolly. We even managed to make our own ornaments on the spot, with a little band saw and bamboo pole.

Trees shouldn't get to have all the fun this season. The bough is perfect for the minimalist, and cuts down on space, too!

*One redwood tree branch was harmed during the making of this post. We are grateful for its contribution to the Christmas cause.
