    I am all about the greenery branches this year. Then when it is time to clean up, in the trash instead of finding a home for it in my cluttered attic. LOve your display.

    This is sooo neat! You are full of great ideas! I also totally agree with Nancy about being able to clean up live greenery so easily. I'm thankful too that I can just go in the yard and get what I need!
