Merriment Chain~ Day3~ Bottle Brush Tree Bowl Fillers

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Good Morning Friends.  I have enjoyed everyone's visits so much over the last couple of days.  Thank you for the sweet comments too.  I love blogging because of the wonderful friendships that can be born through it.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Today I thought I would show you a simple display of a few bottle brush trees.  I tried to put several in the bowl, then rearranging them in various ways.  I ended up with just the three.  All in a row.  So simple, yet somehow pretty.  
I wanted to grunge them, but certain little hands love to play with them.  If you can think of a way to grunge them up without having them become toxic or messy, I would love to know how.


Here is the full display. For some reason.  This speaks to me.  I just love it.  

Have a wonderful day.  Hope to see you all again tomorrow.  Take care friends.

Steph--your bottle trees are so cute--and I do like them in a row--I have NEVER been able to find a single bottle brush tree. :( I LOVE your light up Frosty too...in fact the whole display is sweet!!------Jan

It may speak to you, but it's screaming "Merry" at me!!! * Love it!!! ..The wonderful snowman on that great box with 3 simple bottle brush trees is an awesome display.

Great festive display Steph!! I'm so addicted to vintage bottle brush trees I can't stand it. I have a whole collection....And my "merriment" post today was almost that....except I didn't get them all hauled out in time. (If nothing else, this chain is forcing me to do a little holiday decorating every day...but, yikes, I'm scrambling!!) I, too, love your Frosty fella...but, oh, that box that supports your wonderful display is covet-worthy!! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
