The Tomato-Cage Christmas Tree / Dec. 06

The ladder christmas tree (via Apartment Therapy) struck a chord with me -- a common-place item taking the form of something special like a christmas tree and, in addition, an anti-consumerism tree. When I took out the trash, I saw some recently trash-picked Tomato cages and found the inspiration for my Christmas tree. The lights were easily strung around the cage wire. Shiny green fabric was tucked into the base. The ornaments are made from Barneys newspaper ads using their "Andy Warhol-idays" theme. See more pictures after the jump. (Barneys worked with the Andy Warhol Foundation to create its ads.)
