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.
