I went on a mini spree making bottle brush tree decorations! I bleached all the trees, dyed a few, then added embellishments and put them into various thrifted and/or vintage vessels. This first one is my first forest-in-a-teacup and I am smitten.







The rest are singletons.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

I thought I'd gotten over my bottlebrush fetish, but your little lovelies incite my desire.

Your Forest in a Tea-Cup is just magical. The essence of winter. The design on the tea-cup is so apposite. Really beautiful as always.

I love them all, but that forest in a teacup is just dreamy.

Thanks, everyone! I, too, am extra fond of the forest in a teacup! I want to do more! I have had that teacup for probably close to a decade and a half, because I love the pattern so much. BUT I don't really drink tea very often and when I do it's more than a teacup volume, so it was always just in a cupboard. If it doesn't sell this season I will keep it for my seasonal decor with is VERY much tree themed.

Ooh, the wee sparkly forest in the floofy tea cup is exquisite! Just beautiful, a lovely little scene indeed. You should keep that one, it's just too sparkly sweet and dear to part with.

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO
