house tree before. My house tree is actually two wonderfully twiggy branches that came down from my side hedge under the weight of heavy snow a few years back now. They had grown up, intertwined and fit together as nice as two puzzle pieces, so that when I set them in plaster in a pretty blue French flower bucket, they look just like one tree. I have been thinking it's time to change the decor. Over the summer a darling flock of chubby pink and white curly birds have been roosting among the branches. (You can see one reflected in the mirror.) But as the days grow colder, I think it will soon be time for them to fly to some warm, far away place for the winter. In their place I am making these cute, sparkly faeries to flit among the branches, two down, ten more to go!
I am also going to hang these pretty golden ginkgo leaves, I'll cover them in a coat of protective resin first. The first ginkgo leaf came to me at the store the other day, it was such a beautiful sunny morning and I noticed that one had found its way into my cart. When I was leaving, I decided to bring it home with me, it felt like I aught to look up the symbolism. The symbolic meaning attributed to plants, flowers and trees is so interesting. I was pleased to find that the ginkgo leaf represents Love, Peace, Hope and Longevity, nice huh? A good little reminder for me, as it's been a bit nuts around our home lately. It is the time of year for falling leaves, so I went back and picked up a few more for decoration.
