This past weekend I attended a Christmas tea at my sister-in-law's inlaw's house. (say that three times fast) For many years I have heard tales of this great tree made from brooches that blinks. I witnessed this Christmas wonder on Sunday, and I need to make one. ASAP. It's on black velvet in a gilded frame. The picture doesn't do it justice. It blinks. Yes, it's kitchy, but so wonderfully so...I LOVE it. It might take me all year to make one, but mark my words, this time next year, I'm gonna have a diy.
