wood (& wool) x-mas tree

Although it's early November and Christmas is still far away, I've already started making a pile of my handmade x-mas trees of used wood. Since December 2007 they have become a little bit famous. The first x-mas trees were made for own use and later also for Christmas decoration at Villa Augustus. Last year there were many requests for the little wooden trees and I decided to make another collection. The tree still seems to have fans for the third year in a row. So I've been busy making x-mas trees lately. Last sunday I came into the 'Christmas spirit' (whatever that may be?) when I photographed the trees for my renewed website (in progress, almost done). So here's a litte x-mas preview for those who don't know the tree yet.

  2. so of course i cannot breath now... just the thought of my little tree winging it's way to my shed is enough, but to see your lovely picture is even more exciting.
    i have been 'a planning' and 'a plotting' what i was going to hang on my sweet tree... i'm still not completely sure, but when i have it 'done' i will show you :)

  3. What the heck I'm going to re-comment:

    "Ingrid I hung the one you gave me in the kitchen and today I'm going to screw some hooks in it and dig up my ornaments and decorate it. When Christmas is over I'll just leave it hanging there without the ornaments because I just LOVE IT SO MUCH!!"
