Trimming the Tree: Flags

Last weekend was all about nesting. A heavy rain fell all day on Friday to kick off our holiday decorating. I have one small rubbermaid box that holds all my Christmas season trinkets. I pull it out each year and decorate my mini tree. Inspired by the tree TEB's mom, TAB, decorated last year, I suggested that we make a garland with Norwegian and Alaska flags. TEB gets all the action credit on this project. All I did was find the high resolution pictures on wikipedia. He did all the photoshop work, cutting, and actually gluing of the flags to twine. I did assist a bit with the gluing near the end. Notice the mandarin orange among the presents under the tree for perspective.

That is one festive tree! Making the flags by hand takes Norwegian handicrafts on beyond zebra. Nice work!

Nesting, huh? Is there something you need to tell me?
