a beautiful mess....


i blame lorraine, she gave us all the sweetest tiny pink bottle brush tree to use in our paper mache class with terri brush this past weekend at her lovely home. i tucked mine in with a wee santa and then i had none :(

i came home saturday night to a quiet house and promptly made a beautiful mess...
got out every bottle brush tree i had and bleached and dyed them all. next morning i had blue fingers, a pink countertop, and all these pretty trees!
i dont' know if i can stop....

can't wait to post photos of everything we made.

Ohhhhhh, so perfect! I'm not surprised that you turned a lovely idea into your own inspired rainbow of trees! I wish we could take the class all over again - it was such a blast!
