It may be hard to tell from the photo below, but this storefront tree is adorned entirely with decorations made from hessian.
This store is not selling these items. They have simply decided to use them for their Christmas decorations. It may be a statement. It may simply be a choice to move away from commercialised paraphernalia at this time of year. I just don't know.
What I do know though is that it is as beautiful as any storefront Christmas display I have seen and sends a valuable message to us all. This time of year doesn't have to be about consumerism. Let it be about what is in your heart.
That's what I take away from these images. What it does or doesn't do for you is your business.
