Christmas In July - Day 19

Handmade Holiday Tree Centerpiece

Christmas my husband and I will travel to Chicago to spend the holiday with my Grandmother. There is nothing like experiencing Christmas in Chicago especially after the HOT summer we've been having so far. Living in South Florida it will be in the 90's well into October... We do have a very nice annual Winterfest boat parade, but there's no comparing it to the windows at Marshall Field's or the Festival of Trees at the MOSI in Chi-town...

For these travel holidays, I have my Holiday Tree to bring the holiday cheer to my house, without dragging out all the trimmings. Fashioned from wood dowels, and square of wooden fence post is lavishly embellished just like a regular tree - adorned with keepsakes, family photos, paper snowflakes, Scrapbooking embellishments, ribbon and garland. This is just the one side, and there is more to be added yet, but I snapped this photo before I junked it up too much - less is more...

This makes a beautiful centerpiece on the table and keeps the family busy reminiscing on all the photos I cherish on this tree. Best of all, I can change it for any season.

This tree is approx 26" tall and longest limb is 14". If you are interested in a naked tree form, base, various size hooks & star for the top ready to assemble and decorate - I'm happy to produce a naked tree structure as custom orders for $15 each plus shipping. Please E-mail me at mail { at } sbartist dot com.

Check back tomorrow for the next installment ; ) Sb
