Christmas Tree in an Old Tin

It is a beautiful day here in Southeastern Wisconsin~the sun is shining & the temps are in the mid 50's. Not bad for November & a lot better than the rain we have been having on & off for the past 3 weeks.

 I thought I would show you one of the things I have been working on for my upcoming show. Sandy over at the Olde Country Cupboard showed her trees in old coffee cans awhile ago on her blog. I did something similar a few years ago & sold all the ones I made then~so I decided to do some more with a new twist. I made stocking ornies that will be sold with the trees. As you can see from the picture, I have been neglecting my housework (dust, dust, everywhere). I'll have to live with it for a couple more weeks as I am frantically trying to complete a bunch of unfinished projects before November 14th. Good thing that picture was taken in my bedroom & not my family room. Hubby doesn't notice~he's busy hunting at this time of the year.

Off to hang out some sheets & back to crafting!! Enjoy the day!!  Hugs~Becky

Oh Becky!
How beautiful this tree looks in this old coffee can. How sweet is this. I can see why they sold right out of your booth. It just tugs at your heart. Just the perfect addition to a corner for Christmas Holiday.
