My room at The Plum Tree ~

Don't laugh at my goofy little sketch but I've started working on a cool display idea for my room at The Plum Tree. Tomorrow I'm going to put a really large branch in a 5 gallon bucket and weight in down with quickcrete so it will stay put. I'm going to use burlap around the bucket to cover it up.

I want to place it in a corner and have it tower over the large closet in my room. I also want to place another one in a different corner but I'm not sure yet if it will be too overpowering. You really have to play with these things in the room itself to see if you like the look or not.

As much as I love birds and all things bird and nature related, I thought it would give a nice feel to the room. We'll see! The other photos are manilla price tags being coffee dyed and also I want to decorate the larger tags with images of birds, eggs and nests and tie them onto the tree limbs!

When I've finished and am pleased with everything, I'll be sure to take a photo for you to see . . .

I think the tree will look fabulous.
Looks like you've had fun with those tags. Look forward to seeing the finished tags and a photo of the tree.

Ah, don't you just love a fresh pile of stained tags. I always seem to forget and have to run and make one for a project.
I can't wait to see your display. We've been working on a display at Portobello Road with a large burch branch and snowmen. Like you said, We'll see how it works.

This sounds like a beautiful idea to me, and I can't wait to see the real thing! I'm also looking forward to seeing birds, nests, etc. on the tags.

Your idea sounds great with the tree branch ~ you could even put a couple of those little fake (but real-looking) little birds they sell at the craft stores on the branches, maybe even a couple of little light bird's nests?

I know what you create, Dawn, will look fabulous for your room!! Can't wait to see the finished project!!

I've actually used a big branch like that in my first apartment, in a corner over my couch, and I decorated it with blown glass balls, and it looked really really cool. I can already picture the way it will look in your room, and I think it will look so cool!! I can't wait to see it!!
Their was one funny thing about that branch in my apartment, it had squeeky little bugs that liked to come out at night!!

I keep telling myself that I don't have time for "fun" projects. Only time for cleaning, repairing, refinishing. You inspire me to find the time. You remind me how much joy these "fun" projects have brought me in the past. Thank you!

While at a show recently...I picked up one of the tags at a dealers booth...what looked like it had been Tea dyed...but I could smell COFFEE...and I loved the color too !
