The decorations on this tree are broken bits and pieces of jewelery, pre-owned by assorted, mostly female, members of my family.
There are brooches, pendants, broken chains, earrings, necklaces, watches … some of the latter donated by Butch, and a collection of Monthly Medals … also donated by Butch from winnings at the golf club. (Many more and they will need their own tree!)
Only one item has been purchased … a metal red rose wreath from a second hand shop for a few dollars.
The tree is about to be stripped of the trims … it is one i made, and the trunk has broken. I have to decide whether I repair or pull it apart and use a thicker dowel for the trunk.
