The whimsical "little trees with Christmas dresses"  were beautiful tonight on their beds of "snow."  We added little candles and a few extra snowflakes.  Each one will now go to a special home for the holidays.    Merry Christmas!

The season of Christmas is here and today my studio "Maison d'Arbor" was filled with dancing trees dressed for the Cullman Art Guild Christmas party. 
I snapped a photo of one and sent it to a couple of people for some immediate feedback.   My daughter quickly texted back..."Looks like twigs in dresses"   Bingo!  Yes they did so I began  to add snowflakes ribbons and little gifts on their log stands. 
As I worked, the words and music began to play in my head.  "Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes,  Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes. Silver white winters that melt into springs. These are a few of my favorite things...      Merry Christmas from Crane Hill!!!

Christmas comes to the forest.
