  3. Thank you Anestazia,
    And just a little note to your followers,
    they may still be able to find the trees at TJMaxx,
    Home Goods or Marshall's { as they are all owned by the same co.}
    and it was a recent purchase
    They come in an array of different colors !
    How fun !
    { email if you have questions }

  8. It's not? finished? It looks so beautiful! Love that you embellished it, I would have never thought to do that. But it took it from an ok background piece to a show stopper. Amazing.

    It might even motivate me to get out of my fuzzy slippers and into real shoes, and out to TJ Maxx -- which is right around the corner!
