Happy Thanksgiving!

 Although we won't be open Thanksgiving Day or in the wee morning hours the day after, we will be open 10:00 - 5:00 both Friday and Saturday, with holiday punch and cookies ready for all of our shoppers.  We have re-stocked and re-plenished many of our best-sellers, and have lots to choose from for your holiday decorating and gift-giving.   We hope to see you then!

Maybe you've decided not to put up a large tree this year, or maybe you have trees in several room, including some of smaller stature.  One of the fun things about a small tree is finding a unique container to "plant" it in.  Following are some darling little trees, each in a unexpected or antique container:

This cute little tree is anchored in a large silver punch bowl.  A large antique bowl of any kind could work as well.....maybe a glass punch bowl filled with artificial snow or a wooden bowl for a more homespun look.

A silver ice bucket becomes the base for this little number, while the other little brush trees at its base are planted in various and sundry silver containers.

An iron urn is always a good bet to hold a smaller tree, here placed on a silver tray.

 An extra tiny tree planted in a silver egg cup becomes a favor at each place setting.

Another iron urn holds a "bare branch" tree decked out all in white and silver.  An antique toy truck and wooden crate below hold additional white and silver Christmas decor.

A smaller tinsel tree, nestled in antique clock faces, makes its home a silver creamer.

Various white ironstone pottery pieces become the containers for a grouping of real boxwood and evergreen trees.

Layering adds personality to this little feather tree --- in an urn----surrounded by vintage ornaments----on a platter---on a silver tray----- on a vintage linen!

Add a little tree to one of your rooms (we have a few great little pre-lit trees available for sale), and find a unique container to make it your own.
