The Festival of Trees is an annual fundraiser for our local emergency youth shelter. Organizations decorate the trees, which are then on display for about a week. It's great fun!
This year's tree was inspired by Dottie Angel's "Whatnot" Tree, although--thanks to a certain trip to IKEA--ours ended up looking a tid bit more Scandinavian. (Come to think of it, last year's tree was a little Scandinavian-looking too--perhaps we have a theme?) Starting with a bare branch, we added doilies, some knitting and sewing this-and-that, ornaments, and bits of trim.
If you're local, you can go see our tree--and about gorgeous 50 others--from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. today, and from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday. It's $3 to get in, and it's for a good cause, so enjoy!
