Or at least covered therewith. I have a feeling that someone thought it would be a "green" idea to use
garbage found objects to decorate our town's Christmas tree this year. Sort of a "one man's trash is another man's treasure" vibe, which would prove that these items could be re-purposed to good use rather than chucked into a landfill. Except when the tree is taken down in January, I'm pretty sure that's exactly where they're going to end up.
And so our tree is covered with old vinyl LP's, CD's, plastic bottles, paper plates, and takeaway containers. I think that at least some of them represent someone's idea of a children's art project, but their garbage-i-ness is ever-so-thinly veiled. And three weeks of snow, wind, and rainstorms hasn't done them any favors.

he tries to seal the deal with Mom

|Not even trying.|

the nearby train station trash can.

another man's Christmas tree.
|Either a dough-based art project|
after 4 days of rain, or a
severed coyote head.
