It started at Silver Bella with a handful of tiny glamorous pink heart ornaments from Heather's Past Present booth. Then Paper Pearls' Beth tucked in a couple dainty shells each decked out with glitter and a soft pearl. The pirouetting pink ballerina was nestled in a tin of charming goodies from Tammy. Next to arrive was the elegant "Winter Wish" wand from Andrea. Sitting here and there in my work space, it soon became obvious that they all wanted to move in together on the little white tree waiting wistfully on my desk.
Happily, the vintage pink bells and glittery pink Santas were delighted to share space on the same snowy tree. To bring them all together on their new home, it took only a strand of pink and gold glass beads and swaths of pink tulle wrapped festively around from top to bottom.
Below the branches a small collection of snowy houses gathers cozily, the star residence being Amy’s “very sweet” red and white polka-dot cottage. This isn't one of our family's traditional trees, but it arrived just in time to bring holiday cheer to a corner of my desk and a giggle or two from my daughter-in-law. You can bet such a whimsical tree will be back in my studio next year.
