It is so incredibly beautiful and peaceful and calm, and I can't believe you did it all on your own. The skirt is just perfect! And I can't even express how much I love the water color shells on book paper garland. Gorgeous! I'm amazed, lady.

Have a wonderful day.

I love the natural theme. Again the simplicity of your creativity awes me. It is a truly ethereal looking tree. I have everyone of those items in my house, as we live near the ocean, but I would never have thought of putting it all together like that.

It's perfect, simply beautiful! I wish we lived somewhere we could do this, we live in the desert.... don't think a tumbleweed, cactus tree would have the same charm. ;) haha! Great job, I love "100% created by you" projects, stunning!

Dale said...

Your tree turned out beautifully! While I don't live right on the coast, I've spent a lot of my childhood there and still go as often as I can. I've collected so many shells over the years and often thought of doing an all shell theme at Christmas...maybe this will be the year!

Karin said...
