When other people had their decorations back in storage I started putting together some new trees.
Some loopy crochet over wire branches, held upright by a dowel glued firmly into a pile of books.
I am thinking the books will get a coat of paint.
Decorations on this for now are heavy metal … copper, pewter and brass bits and pieces.
Update Jan 2014
The Book base has been painted dark green, and the current decorations will be replaced!
Packed it away before a photo session.
