This year, one of my Christmas trees has a "Birdsong" theme. I had a box filled with birdies and gifts and projects packed away from that arty weekend, and loaded all of it onto my nature inspired tree.
If glittery silver trees existed in nature, that is.
This was a gift from Hope. The attendees were so generous and thoughtful, I had lots of lovelies to add to the tree from them!
My trees are always filled with sentimental things. Mementos of the years past. The box is one that I made at Kim Caldwell's Christmas gathering last year and the frame is from Silver Bella. Ah, Silver Bella, I miss that!
I'm glad there are so many more arty gatherings to attend, and meet up with friends. I met so many good friends up in Omaha at Silver Bella. And have continued the relationships at Kim's and Jenn's parties, as well as the little casual gatherings I have here at the cottage.
I hope to catch up with old friends at the April workshop that Kim is hosting. And meet new ones too. If you are a first timer for one of these parties and are going to this Snow White fantasy affair, please contact me and I'd love to invite you to sit with me at our table of newbies. There are still a couple seats left at the table, I think.
And anything served up under glass always seems more important! Beth taught me long ago when we had an antique booth together, that if you put something under a cloche, it sells faster. Not that this is something I am trying to sell, but I thought my little white trees and reindeer deserved to be shown off the best I could.
These things are for sale, maybe I should have put them under a cloche before I took the photos?
