A Tiny Winter Forest

12/29/2009

After spending most of a Saturday searching every thrift store, craft store and gift store in town without much success*, Jason and I finally found some bottle brush trees at a craft store. This is about half of the tiny forest. We’re going to experiment with spray paint to see if we can get the effect of vintage pink & yellow dyed bottle brush trees.

*Have I ever mentioned how awesome my husband is? He totally got behind my obsession with this photo and was willing do drive me all over looking for some!

Happy Christmas Eve!

I LOVE this picture. It captures the essence of Christmas decor I want to have in my home. It also sent my husband and me on a mad search for bottle brush trees. (Once I finally figured out what they’re called!) I’ve found some on Etsy but I was hoping to come across some vintage ones at local thrift stores. No beans.


God Jul! {MCM thrift store find}

That’s Merry Christmas in Swedish. (Or “Good Yule!” literally.) This little green ceramic tree with tiny colored lights is a festive find from our holiday thrift store searching. We were on the hunt for bottle brush trees without much luck.

The Dálecarlian horse was a gift from my Uncle Bob several Christmases ago.
