FEATHERED NEST TREE


My living room tree has been touched by glittery snow, twigs and pinecones...
I think perhaps it might have been a bit inviting to the little birds as
a couple of wee feathered owls have made their nests
in the tree this year.


and they brought along a few other feathered friends as well.


Darling little white glass birds with delightful silver feathers...
a sweet vintage birdcage for a little nest
and a couple large gold and sea foam blue birds with little feather tails...


Many birds nestle among the silver, white and glittered ornaments this year,
they are 'feathering' the tree for the holidays.



Several creamy white starfish join in the fun to add a twist to the traditional...
and a glittery gold bottlebrush tree atop a couple of packages & a few
oversized sparkly stars tucked into the branches adding in some bling!


There is someone special too..
Perched high above her feathered tree,
and watching over the friends who have stopped by for the holidays...


a gracious delightful teal peacock sits on a crown of silvery ribbon,
pinecones and cinnamon sticks...
welcoming a warm Holiday season!


Whew!!!
It's been a crazy day...but I managed to add just a few...wink!...more lights (need to be tucked, but at least they are on- the darn prelit ones were half out this year) and more ornaments to my living room tree.
It is loaded up with silver, white and blue pearl balls, lots of feathered friends,
pretty crinkled ribbons and several oversized stars!
I think I might be just about finished with this tree!
:)
Which is good... I have a couple others to tend to yet!!!
