This year of bad economic news reminded me of past days when I had to make do with what I had. Christmas would come (as the Grinch would say)”… without packages boxes or bags”. Just a few cheap strings of lights and some nails to hang them on was all I had to brighten my apartment and make it feel festive. Those Christmas days of the past are just as fondly remembered as some of the more recent ones.
I created this image for my 2009 card in memory of a simpler time.
Bright and cheery Holiday wishes!
