a tree transplant

in this post, i showed a photo of my branch tree sitting on the little table below. unfortunately, it had to be moved due Vintage Modern Boy running into it quite frequently...don't ask me how, though by the fifth time i started to get a little suspicious. so to avoid a potential tragedy (i.e. broken ornaments or VMB losing an eye), i moved it to a safer location. which meant a new arrangement for the little table.

i wanted to keep the same feel...a bit of nature and a bit of sparkle. i'm very happy with how it turned out. i think this smaller stick, in a very, very old liquor bottle, is much more appropriate for the space. the mercury glass and that oh so sweet little bottle brush tree give it sparkle and warmth.


as for the big branch, it now happily (and safely) resides on my bedroom dresser. i think it is a much better spot for it as well. and it has been reunited with my "jewelry branch" that came from the same tree.



a happy ending for all!

...sorry I kinda laughed at the beginning with VMB running into your display{lol}-sorry :)

Your displays are adorable, I bet Gimli has a hard time not playing there. I know my Junebug would be all over those necklaces and ornaments :)

Have a Lovely Day Girlie.

Your displays are beautiful with that wonderful old mirror, the mercury glass and your cute little branch tree. I'm so glad I found your lovely blog, (and that Vintage Modern Boy didn't injure himself on your branch tree!)- Mary
