paige’s favorite tree


I refer to this one as the “woodland tree.”

The colors are all of my favorites—browns, blues, greens mixed with shimmering golds and bronzes.

This acorn with the look of crackling ice crystals is only made better with the cap of beads.

Pinecones are a personal favorite—this snow flocked ornament shines brightly with the sprinkles of glitter.  The finial ornament is accented with pine bows and pinecones.

This oak leaf is from the talented Wendy Addison—note the signature glass glitter and twisted wire wrapping.  (Love that lady and her designs!)

This glitter acorn adds a lots of visual interest to the the tree.

A real pinecone dipped in a bronze paint is an amazing focal point for the tree.

Birds are always a favorite, which is true of their cages, as well.  I’m an addict!  Kendall will tell you.  (Oh, by the way, guess who just remembered she left one at the flea market two weeks ago!  YUP, it was paid for . . .)

A glittery, golden bird is right at home in the bountiful tree.

A wintery nest with snow-flocked berries and leaves.

A mercury glass acorn is another version of an obvious theme.

This floral pick is so versatile.  I’ve used it in everythig from table arrangements to the tree.  They’re classic!

This beautiful angel looks as though she were carved from wood, but her resin base makes her a practical choice for your tree.

Okay—why these are still in the shop is beyond me!  I love the combination of the burlap, the crewel work and ribbons—not to mention the tassel!   I think they’re coming home with me.

These golden orbs are great filler for glass bowls or hurricanes—or you can add a hook to hang them in the tree.

One final ornament—the mixed media look of this cute tag ornament is so appealing!
