When I decorate for Christmas, I have many trees of all sorts of sizes and shapes. They are made from various fabrics, metals, and wood. Each one is special to me and finishes a Christmas vignette to perfection. I'd forgotten about a fat quarter of an old army blanket I purchased years back, and knew it was a beautiful material for a tree. "Silver Bells" is an 18" tall Christmas tree with silver balls attached on each bough and a big silver bell right on top. It has jute twine which criss-crosses down the length of the tall tree. It comes with a stained tag attached and firmly stands in an antique silver “floral frog”. The tree does pull out for easy storage during off season.

OH TANNENBAUM is SOLD, Thank you !

Santa and his prim stick horse are mounted permanently to a gorgeous saddle stirrup that measures 7" x 6". Santa has a cowboy flair, holding on to his Prim Stick Horse and Lariat. I love the leather braiding that runs down both sides of the stirrup too!

Giddy Up Santa is sold, thanks so much!

This very prim Reindeer measures 10” long and 7” high complete with wooden antlers, legs and sheep’s wool tail. It is a dual sided piece, so you can point it in either direction and show off his vintage postcard on the side. It’s a great piece to finish a lovely Christmas vignette, but definitely stands alone and steals the show at Christmas.

This is SOLD, thank you so much!
