Christmas...the very word!

"Christmas! The very word brings
joy to our hearts. No matter how we
may dread the rush, the long Christmas 
lists for gifts and cards to be bought and
given - when Christmas Day comes there
is still the same warm feeling we had as
children, the same warmth that enfolds
our hearts and our homes. "
                     ~Joan Winmill Brown

    I love any chance to decorate and decorating for Christmas has always been one of my most favourite things! There is something about the Christmas season that endlessly inspires me.  It is a season for gathering together and joyfully spending time with family and friends. I love to have "tea parties" and transform the dining room into a wonderland (I do this year round but at Christmas there is something extra special about it :). I lay out my best Limoges china and fill vintage cake stands with pretty treats. Whether these parties are small or large they always have an intimate atmosphere. This year I am pretty obsessed with soft colours. Vintage silvers and golds and, of course, pink. I love pearls at Christmas! I hope these pictures inspire you to have a little holiday tea party of your own!

    1. Hello Ruthie!
      I'm afraid at the moment I am a bit swamped with custom orders for the trees and other handmade items! I have sold every tree that I originally listed in the store. The only size that I am making for customers right now is a smaller one roughly 5 inches tall. I'm sorry I didn't anticipate how popular they would be and they take me quite a bit of time to make (they are very detailed) so my turn around hasn't been very fast! If you want to message me for more details on Etsy please do!
