Christmas Bits



What better way to spend my birthday afternoon, than to cruise a resale shop in search of Christmas bits to create with.



I found some beautiful blue beads, and a newer bottle brush tree.



Now, when I saw this little tree with it's multiple branches, I immediately thought mini trees.



So, I clipped individual branches, and did a repeat of one of my ideas last year.  Using crystal knobs as a base for my little trees.



They look great surrounded by my beads.



I also picked up vintage fabric Christmas ribbon.


Love the patterns.




I'll show you some of the other things I picked up soon.  Right now, I'm eating birthday cake.  Watching a movie later.  Have a great Thanksgiving.
