While shopping a few weeks ago, I found some very unusual beaded pick ornaments at Dillard's. They had them coming out the top of an artificial Christmas tree. They are about 24 inches long. Here I have placed 10 of them in a clear glass vase as I didn't want to put them on my tree. They were so unusual I couldn't pass them by and hope to find a better way to use them next year. The branches are encrusted with glitter. I like the clear glass beads coming off the branches. If you have an idea on how they could be used, please email me.
I am currently using them with three sizes of silver mercury glass trees which I also found at Dillard's.
You can also see the medium and small mercury glass trees on page 105 of this month's November/December issue of Veranda magazine in a room designed by Lisa Luby Ryan. I love that home she designed because it is Swedish and shows some great Swedish antique pieces.
