This little tree sits in my sewing room. It is a work in progress. The garland is made from some very old yo-yo's from my very first live auction down in Amish country. During the auction I inadvertently scratched my nose and bid on a rather expensive item. Fortunately, my friend Nancy, quickly showed me how to shake it off. So when this box of yo-yo's appeared, I was too frightened to move and had her bid on it. The talking is so fast, it's hard to understand anything, especially how much you just agreed to spend. The ornaments are vintage button cards with a ribbon through them. After Christmas, when I have some time, I plan on making some ornaments from some 100+ yr. old tiny blocks my sweet Mom-in-law gave me from her side of the family. I'm lost for an idea for a topper for this tree, and would welcome any suggestions. Have a blessed Tuesday!
