Hand Dyed and Decorated Holiday Bottle Brush Trees

Susan has created a whole line-up of decorated trees for your Holiday vignettes, nativities and center pieces ... or to add to your own crafted creations. She bleaches and dyes the bottle brush trees and wreaths, then decorates them with glitter, ornaments, garlands and other treasures.

These range in size from 1-1/2 inches to 10 inches tall. While most are sold as individual trees, the smaller ones are sold in packages or gift boxes. Take a look. We can send more photos and information if you like. Of course, we are happy to ship anywhere.

Prices for hand dyed and decorated trees and wreaths are:
10" trees at $19.95 each; 7" to 8" trees at $15.95 each; 3-1/2" to 4-1/2" trees at $9.95 each; small trees 2-1/2" to 3" at $6.95 each. Gift boxes of six mini trees 1" to 1-1/2" are $12.95 per gift box. Packages of five mini trees are $9.95 per package; three medium wreaths are $7.95 per package and three small wreaths are $4.95 per package.

Curly Girl Designs Cards

We love this line of cards. They are witty ... poignant ... and just plain cute! It's our best selling line. Even more because of the pains that Curly Girl takes to protect the environment and keep the worl in America. These cards are "printed on recycled paper with soy-based ink with wind-power" in Massachusetts. Go Girls!

The card line covers just about every situation, occasion and whim. The images are frame-able. The messages make for great conversation. We find that they express thoughts we have but never put into words.

We just got in our Holiday cards. Six designs sold individually ($3.95 each) or in boxes of eight cards ($14.95 per box). These are not your average Holiday greetings. Be unique. Be adventurous. Be different. Get them while you can.

Decorate with Reclaimed, Repurposed Barnwood and Tin

These pieces of folk art are made in the little town of Chamblee, Georgia, using salvaged bead board and antique ceiling tin, with a few vintage doo-dads added to complete the image. They are decorative and unique, good for the environment because they use reclaimed materials, good for the economy since they are made in the USA and are good for you because they will warm your heart with a smile.

The artist explains: 
We have been committed to using salvaged materials from the beginning for several reasons. But mostly because, why would you buy some new wood and work for hours to try and create this same old world charm with paint layers and sanding? It's a wonderful way to repurpose salvaged wood and tin.
Celtic Cross, Heart and Fleur d'Lys. ($115.00 each)
Old reclaimed barn wood is covered in vintage tin ceiling tiles to create these unique decorative accents.
Junk Hearts ($59.95 each)
What Valentine wouldn't love these hearts? Created from old bead board and vintage hardware, these hearts come in assorted colors.
Corrugated Tin Frames 5x7 ($39.95 each)

Painted Tin Frames ($59.95 each)

Picture frames made from salvaged materials, like reclaimed wood, antique bead board, used molding, ceiling tin and barn roofs create rustic, down-home places for your family memories. These eco-friendly offerings may not fit into the palette of some decorators, but they will easily fit into your home.
Hanging Angel ($119.00 each)

Standing Angel ($165.00 each)

These angels are made by layering antique wood to form the robes and then attaching wings that are antique ceiling tin. The patina on the reclaimed wood and antique tin is beautiful and each one is unique. These are great for the holidays, of course, but we like to have them around all year long.
