Xmas Paper that celebrates properly Schmaltzy Trees.

If any paper ever perfectly captured the riotious color of a properly schmaltzy German Christmas tree—the kind my mom remembers from her childhood and put up during mine—this is it—colored lights, ornaments in every color, so long as they were bright. So, naturally, when I grew up, I determined to have one that matched, the result being that it has no color at all, since I only put silver, white and cream ornaments on it. This has proven to be a mistake, but, oh well.

Three gifts; the largest is about 11x14”. December 2005.

Hm. I notice this stuff, like the other brightly colored paper I used, also has lime green in it...
