The one with the Christmas tree I decorated for the Dominican Hospital fundraiser.

This is the second tree I have done for the Dominican hospital fundraiser.  This year they are raising money for upgrades to the NICU.  I chose a Scandinavian theme, and the handmade star on top says "God Jul" which means merry christmas.  Carved wooden dala horses, antique roman candles with lead acorn weights, vintage bottles with paper flowers, crochet and felted ornaments, linen sachets, and pinecones adorned it.  I love this tree, and I know whoever wins it tonight at the Cocoanut Grove (raffle tickets in the box next to your favorite tree) will appreciate all of the thoughtful touches I put in to it.  It's one that needs to be seen up close, and since my photos of the tree in whole didn't turn out, please enjoy these views.

The tree must be lovely(judging from your images on this post). We are hoping to get up your way soon. I have heard such wonderful things about your shop - including a rave review from our friends from Australia.

Good luck with the event,

Marjorie (in Carmel)
