Bottle Brush Tree Giveaway

Bring In the Fall Season with the Art of
Gift Giving. And the best way to do that is to have a
Holiday Giveaway on Each and Every Post
leading up to Christmas!
Since It is nearly impossible to give all
my Dear Blog Friends a gift this Season
I can at least try!

1st Giveaway is one of my Custom Bottle Brush Trees
and a Pink Vintage Beistle Co. Paper Angel
So All you need to do is leave me a comment
on this Post to be eligible Let the Fun Begin!

Last Night I was Busy Hand Coloring Pink
Bottle Brush Trees! Wow what a project
but the results always make me giggle!

I have a few left over from Last years Inventory
so I have started to decorate and sell those.
Isn't this pair of Angels just the sweetest? I picked
them up at an Estate sale last weekend!

And I have been busy working on all my Holiday
Craft Projects in my spare time and in the Evenings.
It just never is enough time in a day!

So has a result of all the tree and cottage
decorating going on here this is how my Studio
floor looks. I need more storage!

These Pink trees will be In my Shop Very Soon
just a little last minute touches to do.
I have also been offering a CD chock full of
Vintage Christmas Images all from
my personal Collection.
You can purchase those in My Shop.

Well I have had a couple of Days to slow down, One Escrow closed last Friday
and the other two are just moving along. Thank you all for your well wishes
It is sure nice to read your words of encouragement. This has really been
a hard year in Real Estate I guess it can only get better. Have a great Day.
And thanks for stopping by (:

Hugs & Kisses,

hi diane....i love your blog. i would love a pink bottle brush tree. i tried dying some one time and they fell apart. lol. i am a horrible vintage christmas collectible collector. shame on me. guess it's because we move so often!
i know what you mean about more storage. is there ever enough room?
i love the pink muffin tins!!! i used to sell those like crazy years ago before they became all the rage!! i still think it's a cute and very inexpensive way to store things!!!!

Wow, Diane! I could just eat up that whole tray of little pink trees! Your beautiful creations are food for the crafty soul!!!! Thanks!--Cheryl

Stephanie said...

I'm so envious of your head start on your Holiday crafts. It's hard for me to get started when it's 65 degrees outside. I make little glitter houses too (hence the blog name) and I love little bottle trees. I'm looking forward to seeing what else you create over the season.

~~Carol~~ said...

Hi! I just discovered your blog while looking at your beautiful pictures on Flickr. I love your blog, and I wish I'd found it sooner. I'll be back often, that's for sure! And if it's not too late, I'd love to be entered in this sweet giveaway!
Have a great evening!

M.L. @ The House of Whimsy said...

Thank you for stopping by on my last 'Wednesdays with Mom' post and leaving your kind comment. I'm so far behind on getting back around to everyone. But your little creations here are precious. I still need to put together my own little glitter house scenes. Wish I could be cloned. : )
Have a great weekend,

Cheryl said...

Hi, Diane! I also just found your blog and love to look at your creations. They are wonderful! So is today too late to be in the giveaway?

Take care.

The Urban Chic said...

Diane, I must confess, I visit your blog often just to see all your pink trees and your great finds. Would love to have one, as they are very hard to find in the south---everyone is stuck (Me, too) on the traditional colors of Christmas, Thanks for letting me enter. Hugs, Pat

karen said...

Hi Diane,
How sweet of you to do all the give aways. I would love to enter. You always craft the cutest things. I just love all things retro/vintage especially at Christmas. It looks like you have been hard at work. Love your little houses too. My daugher and I have been busy making a few of them also!
Have a great weekend,

Shari from Big Yellow Farmhouse said...

Your little neighborhood of glitter houses is so darling. Wish I could walk right into it!! So cute and dreamy!!
