Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

Are you surprised? It's another tree!

I'm officially addicted to these trees! If you're sick of them just skip right over but I think they're so creative and very beautiful. This photo came from today's edition of Shelf Awareness 12/18/09. The tree was created by a library in South Australia and was made from used books, magazine pages for the stars and cassette tape for the tinsel. All of the materials came from old library stock left over from the last book sale. Now that's clever! How could I resist posting this one?


  1. Doesn't make you wonder how these people can come up with these things? I don't think I would have ever thought of it.

  2. So clever!! I wish I had a quarter of this type of imagination. Maybe you could try making a tree out of cookies when you do all your holiday baking.

  3. Fab! I bet I could make a cool tree out of used/old phonebooks :)

  4. I saw this one too and loved it - I keep thinking I could do this at the library next year.

  5. Oooh! I want one :)
