branching out

  I had the dream for some time but had been too lazy to search
 out a "proper" branch.
Imagine my happiness to find THIS perfect one
lying across an evergreen tree in our backyard--
apparently deposited by the wind in a most convenient place for me!
  I placed it in a tree holder I found recently at a thrift store.
Now it stands on our front porch decked sparingly with a few thrifted ornaments.
 Even the "berries" seem suited for the season!
(Bags of assorted and very interesting ornaments were priced at $.25 
at my Second Favorite Thrift Store!  I've used many of them to add 
to bows on gift packaging or even for gifts themselves!)


  1. Cute!! Merry Christmas Love Heather

  2. Well that is very cute and original, Rebecca. You are a good thrifter. Nice idea to put the branch in a tree holder. Take care. Susan

  3. Love how the branch showed up just when you needed it. Your decorations look super.


  4. Love it that you have "2nd favorite" thrift store...
    Continue to enjoy your treasured finds. They are lovely, indeed.

    1. Actually I have a 3rd Favorite, too! (Honestly, I sometimes get the 2nd and 3rd mixed up. One week it's one; the next week the other.)

  5. Hi my dear-the tree looks just perfect for Christmas and the ornaments look so lovely! Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and a peaceful 2013 xxxx

  6. That branch is perfect! I love the looks of it, you're very clever!
    Merry Christmas and many blessings to you and yours in 2013.
    Hugs, Cindy
