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.
