Friendship Tree


I have been spending a lot of time lately rearranging my studio along with adding a floor
 length chalkboard {more on that on a later post}, and gray washing my pie safe that
stores all my linens and it has kept me very busy and tired! :)  It  has also led me to adding
special pieces to this little tree.

I call it my "Friendship Tree".

I picked up this little wire cutie a year or so ago at a friends shop who was selling and moving
out of the state. I only paid like a couple bucks for it and I knew it had to come home with me.


I have always been a "detail" person and just love the bits and bobs that come along
with ordering things in the mail. I started hanging them on this tree and each time I
look at it and see a specific tag , I think of the person who sent it to me.

I just added this tulle bow with the "OH JOY" tag. I won it in a Christmas in July
giveaway.


This JDL fabric tag and lace was on one of the scarves that I ordered last year.
Love it!


I have shown this heart tag before. Becky over at Timewashed sent this to me along with some other
goodies awhile ago.  As you can see I haven't removed it from the tag yet because I love it as is. 


I can't highlight each and every tag, but believe me there are several and there is room for many more so I
shall keep filling it up. It just makes me happy.



What makes you happy?


I hope you had a wonderful weekend and that you will have an awesome week ahead!
Blessings~

I love this idea, Sandi. It is so pretty!

I keep little bits and bobs from friends too, but stash them all over the place. It is fun to find one and think of them. :)
Have a lovely day!

What a fabulous idea. I am soooo doing this. On my way to lookout for a wire tree. Don't know where I will find one, but the fun is in the hunt, right?
Don't tire yourself out with painting. Remember to take it slow. Take good care of yourself, dear friend.
*Hugs*
