Gingerbread-like Christmas Trees

I found these at Big Lots.  I plan to take the ice cream cone trees I made off the Gingerbread House and add these really cute ones.  I love the dark brown gingerbread alternating with the white and light brown. And, of course, the little bows.

I woke up at 8 and then crawled back into my toasty warm bed.  Up again at 9.30 and I have eaten breakfast, read blogs and sipped coffee.  It's now eleven and I have a haircut appointment at 1.  It took me awhile to figure out how to photograph the trees without all the ambient clutter also being photographed.  The table tops are cluttered with piles of things.  In fact, every surface has some sort of pile on it. Bills, recipes, cookie tins, receipts, art supplies, string, wrapping paper, cards.  You name it and I have a pile of it on some surface or another.  I chose to tape a large piece of white paper to the lamp and push everything else to the right side.  I am ashamed of myself.  Truly, deeply ashamed.

I think I can make a dent in the next hour so I will cut short all the riveting and clever chat I would normally entertain you with on my day off post.  It's snowing, I have a dinner menu to conjure up, and a grocery list to create.  Thank goodness I don't do Christmas Gifts, Christmas Cookies or any of that anymore.  I would have to crawl back into bed and have a good depression sleep.
