Our Team Holiday Garden was awarded with second place:
See the happy gingerbread people? This is the outdoor view from my workspace, the area I call "The Well", but my friend Jan calls "The Courtyard". See how a decorative tree can brighten up HVAC equipment?
This cat lives in this tree in the garden all year. We festivized his environment.
Sadly, we were not victorious. The first place winner was Team Arctic Adventure:
And really, how could the judges resist these playful sea lions?
Or the handpainted, textured ice berg, complete with Abominable Snowman?
There were polar bears.
And penguins, apparently on holiday from the southern hemisphere. All in all, a fine entry. I was almost happy to lose to them.
Sadly, Katie took the Christmas Crap decorations down before I had a chance to take photos. She did give me one of the decorations from their office. Because I had fallen in love. I was not the only person to become enamored with this lovely little bit of holiday spirit. If you read the note, you will see that someone else thinks she deserves her. May I introduce you to someone who has given me hours of pleasure inside my head:
Crack Pipe Angel.
